Silver Apples Of The Moon

LP (Item 7365) Nonesuch, Late 60s — Condition: Very Good

Classic electronic score by Morton Subotnick, an LP that was, as the label says, the "first original full-scale composition created expressly for the record medium." One long work, divided in half, and featuring some of Subotnick's best early computer music work! (Cover has a split top seam and some wear.)  © 1996-2018, Dusty Groove, Inc.

Very Good

  • Vinyl can have some dirt, but nothing major.
  • May not shine under light, but should still be pretty clean, and not too dirty.
  • May have a number of marks (5 to 10 at most), and obvious signs of play, but never a big cluster of them, or any major mark that would be very deep. Most marks should still not click under a fingernail.
  • May not look near perfect, but should play fairly well, with slight surface noise, and the occasional click in part of a song, but never throughout a whole song or more.
  • This is clearly a copy that was played by someone a number of times, but which could also be a good "play copy" for someone new.

Additional Marks & Notes

If something is noteworthy, we try to note it in the comments — especially if it is an oddity that is the only wrong thing about the record. This might include, but isn't limited to, warped records, tracks that skip, cover damage or wear as noted above, or strictly cosmetic flaws.

Columbia, Late 60s. Very Good-
Late 60s genius from electronician Morton Subotnick – a spare and extended piece that's filled with plenty of great analogue bits! The feel of the work is very bubbling and rhythmic – electronic notes clattering together with a really earthy feel – then sliding into more spacey ... LP, Vinyl record album

All twelve pieces are played on piano, which is amplified and modified in various ways. LP, Vinyl record album
Time's Encomium
Nonesuch, 1969. Near Mint-
"Time's Encomium" is an extended work for synthesizer recorded at the Columbia-Princeton Music Center – and it's got some cool processed sounds that have a nice early computer music approach to them. A bit arty, but not without its darker moments! LP, Vinyl record album
Nonesuch, 1974. Near Mint-
Works include "Ionisation" by Varese, "Ostinato Pianissimo" by Henry Cowell, "Amorphis" by Kil-Sung Oak, and "Fantasy Variations" by Michael Colgrass. LP, Vinyl record album
Nonesuch, 1968. Near Mint-
Nice extended suite of early electronic music, written and performed by Andrew Rudin of the Electronic Music Center of the Philadelphia Music Academy. The sound is similar to some of the other Nonesuch electronic albums from the time, like works by Morton Subotnick and Kenneth Gaburo. The piece ... LP, Vinyl record album
Nude Paper Sermon
Nonesuch, 1969. Near Mint-
The piece, subtitled "Tropes for Actor, Renaissance Consort, Chorus, and Electronics", features Stacy Keach as the Actor, and makes heavy use of multitrack recording. LP, Vinyl record album
Nonesuch, 1969. Near Mint- Gatefold
2 works each by Xenakis and Penderecki, both conducted by Lukas Foss, and featuring Paul Zukofsky as the main soloist on one piece. Our favorite is Xenakis' "Pithoprakta", which has a cold atonal sound, and lots of amazing instrumentation that sounds sparsely electronic. LP, Vinyl record album
Nonesuch, 1971. Very Good+
Hip electronic work – as Animus III fetaures clarinet and magnetic tape – and Valentine is for bass and tape! LP, Vinyl record album

Unusual Classical Synthesizer
Westminster Gold, 1972. Very Good+
While we've never been huge fans of the whole "switched on. . ." sort of recordings with moogy interpretations of classical pieces, there were a couple of good albums in the Westminster Gold series. A variety of short pieces performed on the less widely recorded but equally fantastic ... LP, Vinyl record album
