Soul Jazz (UK), 1960s/1970s/1980s. New Copy
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 ... CD
Soul Jazz (UK), 1960s/1970s/1980s. New Copy 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
Hearing Music
Numero, Early 80s. New Copy 2 CDs
Beautiful sounds from Joanna Brouk – an artist who was sometimes lost amidst the new age scene of the 80s, but one who's got a much deeper, more intellectual approach overall! True, Brouk's music does have a certain meditative spirit – but she also was a student of Terry Riley and ... CD
Motore Immobile
Cramps/Soave (Italy), 1979. New Copy (reissue)
Amazing sounds from the 70s Italian scene! Giusto Pio was a contemporary and colleague of Franco Battiato, and this excellent recording was produced by Battiato, and it's got the same sort of fragile, beautiful, minimal sound that made his classic works so great! The album contains two long ... LP, Vinyl record album
Nuova Consonanza
RCA/Schema (Italy), 1966. New Copy
Some of the most striking work we've ever heard from this legendary Italian group – and that's saying a heck of a lot, given the power of their work in the 60s and 70s! The assemblage features important avant garde sounds from Ennio Morricone – and offers up a real look at the roots of ... CD
Columbia, 1969. New Copy (reissue)
This was the first of Moondog's albums on Columbia – produced in a style that took him a lot more seriously than other albums on labels like Brunswick or Prestige, and handled in a way that slots it nicely between the label's experiments in modern music with artists like Terry Riley or Harry ... LP, Vinyl record album
Musikautomatika/Wah Wah (Spain), 1983. New Copy (reissue)
Improvised electro-acoustic music from the Venezuela scene – a record that's been lost to the shifting sands of time, but which is every bit as mindblowing as any of the group's European predecessors – maybe even more so, given that the trio were working in relative obscurity, and ... LP, Vinyl record album
Variations IV – Volume II
Everest/Essential, 1965. New Copy (reissue)
A very cool album that presents Cage at the height of his "chance" composition stage, and which features him and David Tudor playing a mixed bag of sounds on a sound system, recorded live at the Feigen-Palmer Gallery in LA. The work is the kind of stuff you always hear about with Cage, ... LP, Vinyl record album
Two Solo Pieces
Chatham Square/Superior Viaduct, 1977. New Copy (reissue)
A rare bit of minimalism from the New York scene of the 70s – an early release on the Chatham Square label, and one that was produced by Kurt Munkasci, the main man behind the recorded sound of Philip Glass! The style here is quite different than the work of Glass, though – equally ... LP, Vinyl record album
Propellers In Love
Hat Hut/Superior Viaduct, 1986. New Copy (reissue)
Beautiful sounds from Arnold Dreyblatt and his "excited strings" – an acoustic bass body that's refitted with a different string lineup, and mixed here with other instruments of a string-heavy nature! Yet the music is hardly the usual "with strings" sounds, nor any sort ... LP, Vinyl record album
Wah Wah (Spain), 1975. New Copy (reissue)
The first-ever album from Ariel Kalma – recorded after a long journey to India, where he learned the basics of modal music – which definitely shows up in the course of the album! The tracks are long, spare, and very minimal – almost in Terry Riley territory, but maybe a bit more ... LP, Vinyl record album
Clear Sounds/Perfetta
Sonambient, 1971/1973. New Copy
The first new record in years from the legendary Sonambient label – the musical home of sculptor Harry Bertoia, whose creations were always made with their sonic properties in mind! The two pieces here are from Bertoia's tape archives – and both feature his unusual sound sculptures in ... CD
Kuckuck/Beacon Sound, 1982. New Copy (reissue)
A beautiful record from Terry Riley – and one that really takes the "voices" in the title seriously – as Terry sings a bit, alongside the fantastic waves of sound he creates with his electric keyboards! Riley's voice is nicely thin – almost like Robert Wyatt, and ... LP, Vinyl record album
Orange Mountain, 2017. New Copy
A beautiful score from Philip Glass – the kind of spare sounds that make his soundtrack material some of our favorite in his large catalog of compositions! The tracks here are all for a stage production of The Crucible – the famous play by Arthur Miller – but the music works ... CD
Orphee
Deutsche Grammophon (Germany), 2016. New Copy
A beautiful re-interpretation of the myth of Orpheus – handled here by composer Johann Johannsson in a beautiful style that recalls some of the best Deutsche Grammophon projects from Max Richter! The composer plays a variety of keyboards – including electric and pipe organ – in ... CD
Deutsche Grammophon, 2017. New Copy
A fantastic solo piano presentation of the music of Philip Glass – on a record that maybe even has a more haunting approach to the sounds than similar efforts by the composer himself! Icelandic pianist Vikingur Olafsson brings a slightly dynamic reading to some of the work – almost ... CD
Shadow In Time
2062, 2017. New Copy
Fantastic sounds from William Basinksi – an artist with an approach that's like nobody else we can think of, and which makes these two tracks sound very much in keeping with his famous Disintegration Loops project! As with that masterpiece, the work here revolves around the use of tape loops ... CD
Deutsche Grammophon, 2017. New Copy
A beautiful larger concept work from Max Richter – based on the writings of Virginia Woolf, which are read at three short points in the set – to introduce the kind of subtle sonic spectrums that we've really come to love in Richter's music! The album mixes together Max's own sounds on ... CD
Sony, Late 70s/1980s/1990s/Early 2000s. New Copy 24CD
CD...$89.99 119.98
A stunning collection of sounds from the legendary Philip Glass – a complete set of every single one of his recordings for Columbia Records – which is the label at which he did most of his important music! The set's a treasure trove of modernist musical moments – not just a ... CD
Nuova Consonanza (with bonus CD)
RCA/Schema (Italy), 1966. New Copy Gatefold (reissue)
Some of the most striking work we've ever heard from this legendary Italian group – and that's saying a heck of a lot, given the power of their work in the 60s and 70s! The assemblage features important avant garde sounds from Ennio Morricone – and offers up a real look at the roots of ... LP, Vinyl record album
