Musique Concrete 1956 to 1962
Fremeaux & Associates (France), Late 50s/Early 60s. New Copy 2CD
The birth of a key moment in avant garde music – served up here in a series of recordings that are nicely different than some of the other musique concrete material on the market! The package brings together some early "panorama" presentations of the work – two from the Club ... CD

La Monte Young/Marian Zazeela

Dream House 78'17"
Shandar/Superior Viaduct, 1973. New Copy
Important 70s work from the great La Monte Young – a set that takes off strongly on his exploration of tones and sonic waves – heard here in two very unique settings! Side one features a quartet – with Young on voice and sine wave generator, alongside Jon Hassell on trumpet, ... CD

Ayako Shinozaki

Music Now For Harp
Denon/We Want Sounds (UK), 1973. New Copy (reissue)
A bold new frontier for use of the harp in experimental music – and that's saying a lot, given that Ayako Shinozaki recorded this album during the generation of Alice Coltrane and Dorothy Ashby! Shinokazi takes the instrument a bit back towards its use in more serious music, but with ... LP, Vinyl record album

La Monte Young/Marian Zazeela

Dream House 78'17"
Shandar/Superior Viaduct, 1973. New Copy Gatefold (reissue)
Important 70s work from the great La Monte Young – a set that takes off strongly on his exploration of tones and sonic waves – heard here in two very unique settings!

Jon Appleton & Don Cherry

Human Music
Flying Dutchman/BGP (UK), 1969. New Copy Gatefold (reissue)
A fantastic record – and a really mindblowing mix of spiritual jazz and electronics! The set is an amazing collaboration between trumpeter Don Cherry and pioneering electronic musician Jon Appleton – one of those rare meetings of the minds that goes far deeper than you'd expect! On ... LP, Vinyl record album
Ovation/Soave (Italy), 1973. New Copy (reissue)
A wild set of electronic work from the American heartland of the 70s – a set that claims to bring you to a "higher stage of truth" – but which has a sound that's a lot more bracing at times than more meditative electronic and new age albums from the decade! Steve Birchall ... LP, Vinyl record album
Columbia, 1971. New Copy
One of Terry Riley's most enduring works, and a haunting record that contains two extended modal minimal jams – "Rainbow In Curved Air" and "Poppy Nogood & The Phantom Band". "Rainbow" features Terry interweaving cool keyboard lines on organ, electric ... LP, Vinyl record album

Ariel Kalma, Jeremiah Chiu, & Marta Sofia Honer

Closest Thing To Silence (gray vinyl pressing)
International Anthem, 2024. New Copy
Jeremiah Chiu and Marta Sofia Honer gave us an excellent previous record on the International Anthem label – one that mixed field recordings with sounds of their own – an approach that's continued here as the pair are joined by Ariel Kalma, whose instrumentation really adds a wonderful ... LP, Vinyl record album

Gavin Bryars

Sinking Of The Titanic
Obscure/Superior Viaduct, 1975. New Copy (reissue)
An early moment of genius from composer Gavin Bryars – and a set that was issued on Brian Eno's Obscure Records label in the mid 70s, which ensured that Bryars' music found a larger audience outside the realm of avant classical! That turns out to be a good thing here, as the music here is ... LP, Vinyl record album

Ariel Kalma, Jeremiah Chiu, & Marta Sofia Honer

Closest Thing To Silence
International Anthem, 2024. New Copy
Jeremiah Chiu and Marta Sofia Honer gave us an excellent previous record on the International Anthem label – one that mixed field recordings with sounds of their own – an approach that's continued here as the pair are joined by Ariel Kalma, whose instrumentation really adds a wonderful ... LP, Vinyl record album
Superior Viaduct, 1971. New Copy Gatefold (reissue)
Brilliant minimal work from Steve Reich – pre-fame performances that really get to the core of minimalist composition from the start of the movement – played by a hip small group of musicians that includes Reich, Steve Chambers, Art Murphy, and Philip Glass! "Four Organs" is ... LP, Vinyl record album
Edition X/Superior Viaduct, 1969. New Copy
Some of the most haunting music we've ever heard from spiritual minimalist La Monte Young – a set that was issued on his own small label at the end of the 60s, as a series of duets with his wife, Marian Zazeela – who's a heck of a creative force on the album! The set's got plenty of ... CD
Tricatel (France), 2023. New Copy 2LP
A sublime mix of art, jazz, and other unusual sounds – served up in tribute to the roving 7 x 7 exhibition series, and with a really beautiful package! The book itself is great – 12" square, and with 64 pages of artwork and writing in the middle – graced by recordings from a ... LP, Vinyl record album
Star (Japan), 2023. New Copy
Really beautiful work from the great Terry Riley – and a set that continues some of the surprising and wonderful shift towards jazz improvisation he's brought to his career in more recent years! If you know Riley, you'll know that the record's not really a jazz album – and instead, it ... LP, Vinyl record album
Sony/Music On Vinyl (Netherlands), 2002. New Copy 2LP Gatefold
The final album in the "qatsi" trilogy, and one that's got the same sublime Philip Glass scoring as the others – but which also features some beautiful cello solos from Yo Yo Ma too! Given that there's a darker side to this film, the warmth of the cello balances things out nicely ... LP, Vinyl record album
Sub Rosa (Belgium), 2023. New Copy 2CDs
A deep dive into the surprisingly huge legacy of music in the Fluxus art movement – one that's usually known for its more public expressions and sense of wit, but which also has aspects that resonate strongly with the best currents in modern music from the postwar years onward! This huge ... CD
Edition X/Superior Viaduct, 1969. New Copy (reissue)
Some of the most haunting music we've ever heard from spiritual minimalist La Monte Young – a set that was issued on his own small label at the end of the 60s, as a series of duets with his wife, Marian Zazeela – who's a heck of a creative force on the album! The set's got plenty of ... LP, Vinyl record album

Karlheinz Stockhausen

Adventures In Sound (3CD set)
El (UK), Late 50s/Early 60s. New Copy 3CD
A fantastic overview of the key postwar years of experimental music – a set that not only features some important electronic experiments, but also a wealth of unusual tonal, timing, and instrumental combinations! The box brings together key recordings from these years – some by the ... CD
Star (Japan), 2023. New Copy
Really beautiful work from the great Terry Riley – and a set that continues some of the surprising and wonderful shift towards jazz improvisation he's brought to his career in more recent years! If you know Riley, you'll know that the record's not really a jazz album – and instead, it ... CD
Numero, 1981. New Copy
Some of the moodiest, most majestic music we've ever heard from composer Joanna Brouk – which might be a surprise, given that the initial release of the album was only on a cassette with a relatively cheesy cover! There's a depth here that's almost like 4AD at its mid-80s height – very ... LP, Vinyl record album

Glenn Branca

Ascension
99 Records/Superior Viaduct, Early 80s. New Copy (reissue)
A masterpiece of new music for guitar from the legendary Glenn Branca – a set that both draws on all the minimal experiments on the New York scene of the 70s, and the big wave of underground music at the end of the decade! Branca effortlessly fuses the rock and compositional communities here ... LP, Vinyl record album

Hideki Matsutake, Masashi Komatsubara, & KOnae Imato

Edo
Columbia/Soave (Italy), 1977. New Copy (reissue)
Back in the 70s, there were plenty of records that mixed together the Japanese shamisen with more contemporary sounds – but of them all, this set might well be one of the wildest – as it features two side-long tracks that mix the acoustic strings of the ancient instrument with a mix of ... LP, Vinyl record album

Eugene Chadbourne

There'll Be No Tears Tonight
Parachute/Corbett vs. Dempsey, 1980. New Copy Gatefold
One of the most compelling albums ever recorded by guitarist Eugene Chadbourne – a set billed as "free improvised country and western bebop" – and which features Chadbourne serving up these wild variations on tunes by Carl Perkins, Roger Miller, David Allen Coe, Bobby Bare, ... CD

Jordan De La Sierra

Gymnosphere – Song Of The Rose
Unity/Numero, 1978. New Copy 2CD
Spacey piano work from Jordan De La Sierra – material that's clearly informed by the 60s experiments of La Monte Young and Terry Riley, but which also has a more open, spiritual quality too! The piano has a nice sense of tuning – one that's almost watery at points – and Jordan's ... CD
Drumony/Strut (UK), 1982. New Copy
CD...$8.99 14.99
Very cool music from UK experimentalist Lori Vambe – an artist who works here on two very percussive albums that were issued on his own label back in the 80s, but with a style that's really unlike anything else we can think of! The music has a bit more punch than the "dreamtime" ... CD

(Still sealed with hype and barcode stickers.) LP, Vinyl record album

Carl Orff/Gunild Keetman

Music For Children (2LP Box Set)
Angel, 1958. Near Mint- 2LP Box Set
Amazing sounds from the man who gave the world Carmina Burana – and music that's equally spooky in its own sort of way!

(Cover has a name in pen.) LP, Vinyl record album
Nonesuch, 1978. Near Mint- 2LP
A groundbreaking set of modal minimal tracks that stands as one of Reich's most popular and accessable works.

LP, Vinyl record album
RCA, 1971. Very Good
(Cover has some light wear.) LP, Vinyl record album

Hundred Pockets, 2011. Near Mint-
(Cover has a wide center split in the top seam and is crunched at the corners.) LP, Vinyl record album
Chatham Square, 1975. Very Good+ 2LP Gatefold
Michael Snow may best be known as a film director – and a very minimalist one at that – but he was also a key part of the experimental scene in his native Canada, where sounds like this created the audio equivalent of his cinematic classic "Wavelength"! As with that film, ... LP, Vinyl record album

Soul Jazz (UK), 1960s/1970s/1980s. Near Mint- 3LP
A deep look at the electronic music underground in the 60s, 70s, and 80s – not the academic theoreticians who were slaving away in university laboratories, but the more independent, freewheeling talents who were using the initial analogue moment to open up their own boundaries in time and ... LP, Vinyl record album
Caroline (UK), 1974. Near Mint-
Two pieces of Glass' larger suite of pulsating modal minimalist music. The ensemble here is a sextet, with three electric organs and three reeds, plus voice. Like his other work of this era, the tones overlap and slowly unfold to reveal underlying patterns over the course of the piece. Far more ... LP, Vinyl record album

Terry Riley

Rainbow In Curved Air
Columbia, 1969. Near Mint-
One of Terry Riley's most enduring works, and a haunting record that contains two extended modal minimal jams – "Rainbow In Curved Air" and "Poppy Nogood & The Phantom Band". "Rainbow" features Terry interweaving cool keyboard lines on organ, electric ... LP, Vinyl record album

Morton Subotnick

Silver Apples Of The Moon
Nonesuch, 1967. Very Good+
One of THE electronic records of the 60s – an album so important, the Silver Apples took their name from the title – and a whole other generation of artists took strong inspiration from the electronic creations of Morton Subotnick!

Tomato, 1977. Very Good+ 2LP Gatefold
Of all of John Cage's work the stuff that still stands up extremely well for us is his prepared piano compositions. The sound that Cage forged on the instrument is still incredibly striking, and recordings of the technique are not always that easy to come by. This 2LP set on Tomato represents ...
