Ode To Marilyn
Svart (Finland), 1973. New Copy
A tribute to Marilyn Monroe, but one that's way different than you might expect – as the music here is highly electronic, and often quite dark – served up in a mix of experimental and jazz-based modes by a very unusual Finnish group from the early 70s! The quintet features drummer ... LP, Vinyl record album
Reidarin Sahkoiset Kuvat
Love/Svart (Finland), 1977. New Copy (reissue)
An unusual electronic project from mid 70s Finland – a collaboration between Ake Anderssonin and Antero Honkasen on music inspired by the paintings of Reidar Sarestoniemi – a relatively abstract artist, as you might guess from the sound of the proceedings! Most of the work here has a ... LP, Vinyl record album

Reidarin Sahkoiset Kuvat
Love/Svart (Finland), 1977. New Copy

Columbia/Concord, 1968. New Copy (reissue)
Brilliant work by Steve Reich – featuring two of his best early pieces! "Violin Phase" takes up all of side one – and features a solo performance by Paul Zukofsky that's a perfect exploration of Reich's concept of phase shift. "It's Gonna Rain" is on side two ... 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 ... LP, Vinyl record album
RVNG, 1985. New Copy
A fantastic collaboration between legendary sci-fi writer Ursula LeGuin and composer Todd Barton – a set of songs that were done with inspiration from LeGuin's book Always Coming Home – which she said inspired a series of songs inside her head! Ursula speaks some passages in the ... LP, Vinyl record album
Prestige/4 Men With Beards, Mid 50s. New Copy (reissue)
Incredible work from the enigmatic Moondog – his third, and to that point, possibly most angular record for Prestige to date! The work here is quite different than some of Moondog's later, more serious compositions – in a mode that's much earthier, personal, and spontaneous – a ... 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
El (UK), Late 50s/Early 60s. New Copy 3CDs
A trio of albums that represent important early recordings of compositions by groundbreaking sonic genius Edgar Varese! First is the album Complete Works – an early series of recordings supervised by composer Edgard Varese – featuring versions of what were then his complete works! The ... 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
Human Music (with bonus tracks)
Flying Dutchman/Ultra Vybe (Japan), 1969. New Copy
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 ... CD
Sulle Corde Di Aries
Superior Viaduct, 1973. New Copy 2LP (reissue)
A key turning point in the career of Italian modernist Franco Battiato – as he leaves behind the straighter progressive format of his first two albums, and moves into a mode that's much more experimental! The album features four long compositions – all of which show Battiato ... LP, Vinyl record album
Musique Experimentale
Cacophonic (UK), 1962. New Copy (reissue)
Groundbreaking work from the French scene of the postwar years – easily one of the most important places to put the word "experiment" in experimental music! The sounds here really live up to the promise of the title – really revolutionary explosions in sound from musicians ... LP, Vinyl record album
Etats-Unis/Superior Viaduct, 1971/1972. New Copy (reissue)
Maybe some of the darkest music you'll ever hear to accompany a dance performance – created at the start of the 70s by Bay Area composer Warner Jepson – who uses both a collection of his own found sounds, and a Buchla 100 synthesizer! The approach is very electro-acoustic – as it' ... LP, Vinyl record album
4 Espaces Sonores
Transversales Disques (France), 1979. New Copy 2LP Gatefold
A very cool entry in the underground legacy of 70s sound sculpture recordings – that is, recordings that were made based around the sounds created by specific objects designed to make noise! In Chicago, we had Harry Bertoia, whose creations were often designed to interact with organic forces ... LP, Vinyl record album
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
Fremeaux & Associates (France), 1900s/1910s/1920s/1930s/1940s/1950s/1960s. New Copy 3CD
A very unusual look at the sound of the avant garde – one that begins much earlier than most other collections, and that features a fairly wide range of musical genres too! The set offers up a comprehensive look at modern music in many forms – from initial moments in more serious ... CD
Tompkins Square, Mid 70s. New Copy 3CD
Beautiful sounds from the Entourage ensemble – a group who were years ahead of their time, but hardly got recognized in the 70s – because all of their work was issued on the Folkways label! In some ways, the group grew out of two different strands – both the acoustic underground ... CD
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
Whirled Music
Quartz/Black Truffle (Austria), 1980. New Copy Gatefold (reissue)
The title's not a take on the format of world music – and instead, the sounds here are literally "whirled" – mostly created by performers using instruments that are spinning in the air – often with sonic results that are pretty incredible! These aren't the echoey tubes ... LP, Vinyl record album
Gruppo D'Improvvisazione Nuova Consonanza (1973)
Cinevox/Superior Viaduct, 1973. New Copy (reissue)
A rare one from Italian experimental pioneers Gruppo D'Improvvisazione Nuova Consonanza – led by Franco Evangelisti and featuring the great Ennio Morricone on trumpet, who might feel a little bit liberated from the conventions of film soundtrack compositions in this setting, and is making ... LP, Vinyl record album
Columbia, 1968. New Copy Gatefold (reissue)
Terry Riley's masterpiece, and an enduring classic that never grows old – and which never lapses into the hippy dippyness of some of his other work! The piece features 53 short musical passages, played in an order defined by the players, in minimal repetition, moving in and out of phase ... LP, Vinyl record album
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
Glass World
Etats-Unis/Superior Viaduct, 1970. New Copy (reissue)
The title's no lie, as the music here comes from a variety of different glass-based items – either panes of the material, bottles, shapes, or other forms – all used in a variety of wonderful ways! The set is maybe one of the most organic we've heard from composer Annea Lockwood – ... LP, Vinyl record album
Etats-Unis/Superior Viaduct, 1979. New Copy (reissue)
Early live performances from sonic wizard John Duncan – an album that was originally issued in a tiny amount of copies by the Los Angeles Free Music Society – but which really points the way towards the deep, dark textures that Duncan would bring to much of his music in the decade to ... LP, Vinyl record album
Pollution
Superior Viaduct, 1972. New Copy Gatefold
A really full-on early set from Franco Battiato – a set that's maybe halfway between some of his more avant compositions and some of the modes of the Italian prog scene at the time! The album's a concept one, based on the growing pollution of the planet – in a mode that's maybe similar ... LP, Vinyl record album
Elektra/Black Truffle (UK), 1966. New Copy (reissue)
Noisy brilliance from AMM – one of the most important avant acts of the 60s – and an incredible bridge between jazz, psych, and 20th Century classical worlds! The group were a powerhouse on the London scene of the middle of the decade – reportedly a huge influence on Pink Floyd, ... LP, Vinyl record album
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
Mental Experience (Spain), 1960s. New Copy
Some of the most important electro-acoustic music to come from the Brazilian scene in the 60s – recordings that are every bit as powerful as similar experiments from Europe at the time, particularly the revolutionary talents working in Paris! Jorge Antunes takes a big page from their book, ... LP, Vinyl record album
Prelude Au Sommeil
Fantome Phonographique (Italy), Late 50s. New Copy (reissue)
You might know the music of Jean-Jacques Perry from his groovy moog albums of the late 60s – but here, the European electronic pioneer works in a very different format – on a record of early analogue lullabies with a very dreamy feel! The style's very peaceful and mellow – very ... LP, Vinyl record album
Tompkins Square, Mid 70s. New Copy
Beautiful sounds from the Entourage ensemble – a group who were years ahead of their time, but hardly got recognized in the 70s – because all of their work was issued on the Folkways label! In some ways, the group grew out of two different strands – both the acoustic underground ... LP, Vinyl record album
Electronic Music For Piano
Omnivore, 2018. New Copy
A completely amazing presentation of this very unusual piece by John Cage – one that plays with chance actions and sound even more than the original composition! The format is very unusual – producer Gino Robair (who's almost part of the performance himself) recorded pianist Tania Chen ... CD
Suttle Sculpture
Sub Rosa (Netherlands), 1977. New Copy
Fantastic sound experiments from David Toop – maybe some of his most improvised music on record, done in collaboration with Paul Burwell – one of Toop's main musical partners since the late 60s! Both musicians handle a wide variety of instruments – flutes, whistles, percussion, ... LP, Vinyl record album
Messe Pour Le Temps Present
Philips (France), 1967. New Copy (reissue)
A legendary album – one that came from the more serious side of the French electronic scene of the 60s – but which has gone on to great fame in a number of different scenes – thanks to its mad blend of funk and electronics! There's grooves here you'll recognize from famous hip ... LP, Vinyl record album
Pop Art
Vinyl Ermitage, Late 60s/1970s. New Copy
Cathy Berberian's a hell of a hip singer – one who could work in very avant modes, yet also get name-checked by Donald Fagan at the same time – thanks to the wide-ranging scope of her work! That scope is explored very fully here – as Berberian performs a range of material that ... LP, Vinyl record album
Black Sweat (Italy), Late 70s. New Copy 4LP
Unreleased sounds from electronic genius Ariel Kalma – and a package that only further deepens our respect for his music! The sound here are even more expanded and spacey than some of Kalma's other music – crafted almost in private security, where he could let his keyboards and ... LP, Vinyl record album
Nonesuch/Pure Pleasure (UK), 1987. New Copy (reissue)
A great recording of Steve Reich's seminal composition "Drumming" – an amazing blend of minimal percussion snatches, coming together to form a lyrical repetitive work of great beauty! Reich heads up the recording himself – working here with 9 percussionists, 2 vocalists, a ... LP, Vinyl record album
New World, 1966. New Copy
One of the most beautiful works we've ever heard from composer Harry Partch – music created upon his return to northern California, in a space of new creative freedom – where Partch and some of his younger followers made these really organic, really breathtaking sounds on those famous ... 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
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
Five Rhythm Works
EM (Japan), 1970s/Early 80s. New Copy
Fantastic percussion pieces from this ultra-cool New Zealand ensemble of the 70s – a group who take their name and inspiration from the Scratch Orchestra of Cornelius Cardew – but who also work in a more intimate setting, with lots of instruments of their own creation – with a ... CD
