De-coll/age Musik
Multhipla/Soave (Italy), 1982. New Copy Gatefold (reissue)
A collection of work drawn from decades of creations by Wolf Vostell – a founding member of Fluxus and one of the more radical musicians of the 60s – although crucially ignored in wider discussions of creative music! Vostell works here in ways that illustrate his "de-collage" ... 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 ... LP, Vinyl record album
Clear Sounds/Perfetta
Sonambient, Early 70s. 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 ... LP, Vinyl record album
Song Cycle (UK), 1960s/1970s. New Copy Gatefold (reissue)
Great stuff – an obscure compilation of sound works done by members of the Fluxus movement in the 60s and 70s, plus a few additional pieces by contemporaries of those artists! The album follows in the tradition of compilations of Dada and Surrealist sound composition – but also shows ... LP, Vinyl record album
Deutsche Grammophon, 2017. New Copy 2LP Gatefold
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 ... 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
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
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 ... LP, Vinyl record album
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
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
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
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
Basta (Netherlands), Early 60s. New Copy
A great record for a baby – if you want to either mess that baby up for the rest of his life, or turn him on forever to the sound of electronic music! Billed as "an infant's friend in sound" these Soothing Sounds albums were issued in the early 60's as an electronic aid to mothers ... CD
Song Of The Second Moon
Limelight/Fifth Dimension (Germany), 1962. New Copy (reissue)
Groundbreaking analogue electronics from the Dutch team of Tom Dissevelt and Kid Baltan – two musicians who can be as playful as the tem of Perry & Kingsley, but also hit some of the darker modes of the academic circuit as well! The title is very well-put – as the record has a vibe ... 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
Six Pianos/Keyboard Study #1
Film (Germany), 2016. New Copy
A fantastic recording of two minimalist classics – each done here in an unique sort of way! The reading of Steve Reich's "Six Pianos" features six different artists on the instrument – but each recorded by themselves, away from the others, using their own piano – which ... LP, Vinyl record album
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
Columbia, 1971. New Copy 2LP Gatefold (reissue)
One of the lasting classics from Harry Partch – a really Moondog-like record that's put together from a host of unique instruments designed by Partch himself! Although a somewhat serious piece in presentation, there's a really organic feel going on here – lots of spare, almost eerie ... LP, Vinyl record album
Femenine
Frozen Reeds, 1974. New Copy
A fantastic piece of minimalist magic from Julius Eastman – a lesser-known composer of the 70s, but one we'd rank right up there with Steve Reich, given the beauty of this work! The CD features one long piece – "Femenine" – which builds slowly out of small passages of ... CD
Song Of The Second Moon
Limelight/Fifth Dimension (Germany), 1962. New Copy
Groundbreaking analogue electronics from the Dutch team of Tom Dissevelt and Kid Baltan – two musicians who can be as playful as the tem of Perry & Kingsley, but also hit some of the darker modes of the academic circuit as well! The title is very well-put – as the record has a vibe ... CD
