A compilation LP of sorts – though at the time of its release most of this material had not been heard in this form! The album's more or less part of the "Ambient" series Eno had started that year with Music For Airports – and it's presented with similarly simple, elegant ...

Brian Eno leaves the Airports, and moves On Land – but still keeps things pretty much in the spare sound of the Ambient series! The lineup here features a few more extra musicians – including Michael Beinhorn on synth, Jon Hassell on trumpet, Axel Gros and Michael Brook on guitars, and ...

Incredible work from the enigmatic Moondog – and a great CD that brings together his rare 2nd and 3rd albums for the Prestige label! 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 ... read moreCD
Amazing electronics from Laurie Spiegel – a set that's wonderfully on the cusp of analogue expression at the end of the 70s – tuneful, not noisy – rich in texture, yet never too dark – and warm, but never in a mellow sort of new age way! At some level, a record like this ... read moreCD

The world of moogy music first exploded back in the late 60s – when artists like Bruce Haack, Perry-Kingsley, and others were making all these wonderfully weird records that featured heavy analogue electronics and other playful elements! By the 80s, most of that music had gone away – ... (Sound Library, Out Sound)read moreLP, Vinyl record album
A beautiful recording of a single long piece – "Tamaran", a spare extended work on prepared piano, played with all of the charm and jagged whimsy of some of John Cage's best early recordings in the style! CD
(US pressing, including the printed inner sleeve. Cover has light ringwear.)
Vladimir Tarasov —
Atto IV ... LP Melodia/Sahko (Finland), 1989. New Copy (reissue)...
Just Sold Out!
A beautiful little record that's wonderfully hard to peg – not entirely a jazz record, although there are elements in the set of avant improvisation – but also not really any other style we can think of – and we mean that in the best way possible! Vladimir Tarasov recorded this ... (Jazz, Out Sound)read moreLP, Vinyl record album
A fantastic overview of the key postwar years of experimental music – a set that not only features some important electronic experiments, but also a wealth of unusual tonal, timing, and instrumental combinations! The box brings together key recordings from these years – some by the ... read moreCD
One of David Behrman's coolest albums – a set of wonderful electronics that really lives up to the image on the cover! Also fetauers some trumpet from Rhys Chatham and Ben Neill – the latter of whom also plays "mutantrumpet". LP, Vinyl record album

Terry Riley —
In C ... LP Columbia, 1968. Near Mint- Gatefold ...
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 ... read moreLP, Vinyl record album
(70s Masterworks pressing in a Unipak cover, with clear tape on the spine.)
Three works performed by the Ars Nova Ensemble, with Marius Constant conducting. The most interesting of these is "Polytope", a work for 4 orchestras scattered throughout the audience. "Medea" is a work for men's chorus, galets, and orchestra; and "Syrmos" is for a ... read moreLP, Vinyl record album
A modern minimalist watershed – and maybe one of the first indications that Brian Eno was moving onto higher ideas in his music! The album's an important release on the Obscure series from Island Records – a special imprint that was curated by Eno, as a way of giving showcase to new ...

Brian Eno's second installment in the Ambient series – a set of recordings done in collaboration with Harold Budd – who'd almost go on to carry the torch for this style more than Eno! The tracks are as spare and atmospheric as the previous Ambient album – but are also almost a ... (Rock, Out Sound)read moreLP, Vinyl record album
