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
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
Terry Riley/Don Cherry Duo
Be! (Germany), 1975. New Copy
A fantastic performance from a mystical duo who never cut any work together in the studio – but who are captured here in a rare radio performance in Germany from 1975! The setting is clearly organized by Terry Riley – who begins the album's 32 minute reading of "The Descending ... CD
Rainbow In Cologne
Be! (Germany), 1971. New Copy 2CD
A fantastic addition to the catalog of Terry Riley during his most influential years – a set that features two long, extended organ performances by the minimalist – both on a par with his best records of the time! The similarity in title to Riley's classic Rainbow In Curved Air album ... CD
Felmay/Aguirre (Belgium), 1971/1972. New Copy 2LP Gatefold (reissue)
Amazing work from Terry Riley – just the sort of recordings that will always make us love him forever! The album features two long recordings of the title track – "Persian Surgery Dervishes" – both built out of slow, spare organ lines from Riley – played in these ... LP, Vinyl record album
Lovely/Tompkins Square, 1971. New Copy (reissue)
Haunting early work by Meredith Monk – recorded in 1971, and performed by a small group of vocalists – all working with Monk in an incredible presentation of her new ideas for voice! The music is already at a place that's light years ahead of most – clearly marking the singer as ... 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
Honest Jons (UK), 1950s. New Copy 2LP Gatefold
A long-overdue tribute to the legendary Moondog – one of the true visionaries of American music in the 20th Century! Moondog got his starts as a blind musician working the streets of New York at the end of the 40s, but he did so (as you'll note on the cover photo) with a range of unusual ... 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
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
Terry Riley/Krishna Bhatt Duo
Be! (Germany), 1984. New Copy 2CD
Unreleased work from Terry Riley – recorded in the WDR studios of German Radio, and a tremendous addition to his catalog! The first half of the music here features Riley on piano and electronics, in duet with Krishna Bhatt on sitar and tabla – in a mode that further unlocks the ... 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
Kuckuck/Beacon Sound, 1975. New Copy (reissue)
A seminal recording of this masterpiece from Terry Riley – part of his European sojourn in the mid 70s, a time when it seemed that the major US interest that Riley had gotten was fading a bit – but the composer was opening up into even headier territory overall! The long, cyclical ... LP, Vinyl record album
Basta/Music On Vinyl (UK), 1950s/1960s. New Copy 3LP (reissue)
Amazing! This is one of the coolest sets we've seen in years – and everything about it is fantastic, from the package right down to the triple-length set of music! The set features rare unreleased recordings from Raymond Scott's legendary Manhattan Research electronic music studios – ... 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
Moondog, 1956. New Copy (reissue)
One of the best early albums from the legendary Moondog – a set that got wider circulation than his first few releases, and really helped expand his reach beyond New York City! Moondog's still at his simple best here – working in a blend of rhythmic percussion, stringed instruments, ... 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
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
Sub Rosa (Belgium), 1960s/Early 70s. New Copy
Fantastic electronics from a composer who worked famously at the Columbia-Princeton Electronic Music Center in the 60s – one of the most important American sites for experimentation in an analogue mode! Both the center, and the music of Bulent Arel, follow in modes that are strongly resonant ... LP, Vinyl record album
Sub Rosa (Belgium), 1960s/Early 70s. New Copy
Fantastic electronics from a composer who worked famously at the Columbia-Princeton Electronic Music Center in the 60s – one of the most important American sites for experimentation in an analogue mode! Both the center, and the music of Bulent Arel, follow in modes that are strongly resonant ... CD
