✨✧ Pierre HenryUn Monde Lacere ... LP
Transversales Disques (France), 2008. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
The legendary French electronic composer Pierre Henry was 80 when he created this piece – but the sound of the music is very much close to his roots – and recalls the kind of striking combinations that Henry brought to the postwar world of musique concrete! The work was recorded in collaboration with artist Jacques Villegle, whose pieces often involve things ripped up and re-assembled – a feel that really comes through here in the strange array of sounds that are created and shuffled by Henry – elements that, like all of his classic creations, are very difficult to locate in any sort of exact source of location. That doesn't men that the music is very abstract – as Pierre always goes for these very distinct elements that really leap right out of the recording – but there's this really unusual quality that verges between electric and acoustic, and which maybe goes back to the true roots of electro-acoustic music. The album features one long piece – "Un Monde Lacere" – composed and performed by Henry at studio Son/Re in 2008./ LP, Vinyl record album

Henk Badings & Dick RaaijmakersEvolutions, Contrasts, & Electronic Music ... LP
Fantome Phonographique (Italy), Mid 50s. New Copy (reissue)... $22.99
A treasure trove of early electronic music from these two Dutch giants of the field – both every bit as important as the more widely-circulated French artists of the musique concrete generation! Badings is featured here on a number of great tracks – including the sublime "Capriccio", which takes off on older violin sonata modes, by having a solo violin play next to two electronic tracks! "Genese" is even bolder, and uses five oscillators to create the tracks in three different movements! "Evolutions" is a ballet suite by Badings – short electronic pieces that point the way towards some of the dance experiments by Pierre Henry. Raaijmakers is featured in a number of shorter, more playful tracks – almost more along the lines of the 60s moog generation – with titles that include "Night Train Blue", "Song Of The Second Moon", "Contrasts", and "Colonel Bogey".

Mario Molina with Edda Dell'OrsoAsh/Gli Angeli Del 2000 ... 7-inch
Four Flies (Italy), 1969. New Copy ... $18.99
Two of the grooviest tracks from the soundtrack to Gli Angeli Del 2000 – one of the best musical moments from Mario Molina! Edda Dell'Orso sings in the lead on "Ash" – but the tune is funky, and Edda's actually singing real lyrics – not the wordless vocalizations she usually does with Ennio Morricone! The tune's got a strutting bassline over the drums, and some mighty nice horns – and it's backed by the main theme of the soundtrack, which has a mix of groovy guitar, funky drums, and chimes that seems very inspired by the Messe Pour Le Temps Present of Pierre Henry! 7-inch, Vinyl record

Raymond ScottManhattan Research Inc – New Plastic Sounds & Electronic Abstractions (180 gram clear vinyl 3LP set) ... LP
Basta/Music On Vinyl (Netherlands), 1950s/1960s. New Copy ... $48.99 52.98
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 – originally set up in 1946, and home to some of Scott's landmark early work on non-acoustic music during the 50s and 60s. Far from being the sort of turgid, dark knob-twiddling that computer music later became in the academy, Scott's early experiments are filled with a sense of whimsy and joy – exported directly from his early cartoon-based work, and applied in a fantastic way to his evolving musical inventions! The LP edition comes in three separate sleeves, plus a great 8 page booklet of notes, in a brilliant graphic style that complements the package even further! Don't forget the music, though – because it's totally fantastic – and kind of reminds us of bits of Jon Appleton's Syntonic Menagerie, Pierre Henry's early Musique Concrete, and later punk-era DIY electronics. That doesn't even come close to pinning it down, though – and with 3 LPs worth of material, the scope of the work is amazing! LP, Vinyl record album
(Individually numbered limited edition of 750 – on heavyweight clear vinyl! Includes download.)

✨✧ Suzanne CianiFlowers Of Evil ... LP
Finders Keepers (UK), 1969. New Copy (reissue)... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Suzanne Ciani has cut some sweeter sets over the years, but this album's definitely not one of them – as the whole thing is an early piece from the artist's career, recorded on the Buchla synthesizer, and based on the work of Charles Baudelaire! The core piece, "Flower Of Evil", features a recitation of a Baudelaire poem right into the Buchla – which then complicates and distorts the voice, as it mixes with these wonderful waves of analogue electronics – bubbling, flowing, and stretching out to create this moody landscape that really would have made the poet proud! The other three selections on the record are even more stark and spooky – still done on the Buchla, but with a vibe that's maybe even more in the mode of some of the Pierre Henry experiments from the same time. Titles include "Glass Houses" and "Token Spokes (parts 1 & 2)". LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ Nino NardiniMusique Pour Le Futur ... LP
WRWTFWW (Switzerland), 1970. New Copy (reissue)... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Nino Nardini's given us some very groovy music over the years – like his famous Jungle Obsession album – but this set has the maestro working in a completely different mode – turning out some incredibly haunting sounds in a musique concrete approach! Nardini composed all the tracks, and they've got a sound that takes us back to the legendary years on the French scene of the 50s – like important early work by Pierre Henry or Pierre Schaeffer – with a mix of acoustic elements and electronics, all in a mode that's definitely pointed towards the future of the title. The style is never too atonal – Nardini does allow for some of his sense of melody to hit the music from time to time – and titles include "Station X", "La Danse Des Cometes", "Decouvert Lunaire", "Planete Mars", and "Galaxie Inconnue".

✨✧ Jon AppletonAppleton Syntonic Menagerie ... CD
Flying Dutchman/Ultra Vybe (Japan), 1969. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
An incredible record from the glory days of Flying Dutchman! The session's one of a rare few cut by electronic musician Jon Appleton, and it's a stunning blend of analogue electronics and sonic cut up material – a record of musique concrete compositions to rival the greatest work coming out of France in the late 50s and early 60s! Appleton's approach to the material is at some level like that of Pierre Henry, but at another level, he's also using some bits of late 60s Americana – such as a Chef Boyardee commercial, or snippets of interviews done in an airport – and it's elements like these that give the set a darkness that makes it even more compelling. Titles include "Chef D'Oeuvre", "Newark Airport Rock", "Times Square Times Ten", "Second Scene Unobserved", "Nyckelharpen", and "The Visitation". CD

✨✧ Cecil LeuterPop Electronique – Les Sons Electroniques De Cecil Luter ... CD
Fifth Dimension (Germany), 1969. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
Fantastic funky electronics – a rare sound library set from Cecil Luter, done in a mad mod style that's not unlike some of the cosmic breaks you'd get from fellow Frenchmen Jean-Jacques Perrey or Pierre Henry! Cecil moogs it along fast and funky on a dozen tracks – backed by a small combo with organ, guitar, bass, and a very nifty drummer – whose efforts make for plenty of great grooves and heavy breaks on the record – more than enough to keep these cuts at the top of your crates for years to come! There's a style here that's almost a precursor to some of the later Cosmic sounds of the 80s – but the style here is lean and stripped down – very mod and late 60s, with tracks that are all numbered "Pop Electronique" themes.

✨✧ Bruno LeysMaintenant Je Suis Un Voyou EP ... 7-inch
Born Bad (France), 1969. New Copy (pic cover)... Out Of Stock
Four very groovy tunes from French rocker Bruno Leys – a bit psychedelic at times, but with a romping grooviness too – almost as if the Pierre Henry of Le Messe Temps Present decided to work with a rock group! There's lots of fuzz and echo, but the drums are nice and funky – and all four tracks here are wonderful, with titles that include "Hallucination", "Dans La Galaxie", "Eve", and "Maintenant Je Suis Un Voyou". 7-inch, Vinyl record

✨✧ VariousElectronic Music ... CD
Folkways, 1967. New Copy Gatefold ... Out Of Stock
A wonderful collection of early electronic music – issued by the less-high tech Folkways label, but every bit as compelling as similar collections from bigger labels at the time! Most of the work was composed in the 50s and early 60s, and is from the Electronic Music Studio at the University of Toronto – one of the key academic outposts for the style in its pre-commercial years. Composers include Myron Schaffer, Arnold Walter, Harvey Olnick, and Hugh Le Caine – all working in weird tones and sounds that remind us a lot of the best early work of Pierre Henry. There's some great tracks, including "The Orgasmic Opus", "Dripsody", "Inferno", "Noesis", "Summer Idyll", "Collage", and "Pinball" – which features only sounds from pinball machines! CD
(Special limited CD – pressed up for us by the Smithsonian Folkways label. Comes with original cover artwork, and the CD also features a PDF file with the original liner notes and other materials from the original record release.)
