    joan la barbara – voice is the original instrument – arc light editions

    $27.00 Add to cart

    Voice Is The Original Instrument was the first record released by Joan La Barbara in 1976 on Wizard Records. This is the first time the original LP, with artwork, has been made available again. It has since become iconic as one of the initial examples of extended vocal techniques in experimental music. The human voice is the only instrument on the recordings. The works on Voice is the Original Instrument were some of Joan’s earliest compositions, researching the possibilities of the voice, in two rigorous études, “Circular Song” and “Voice Piece: One-Note Internal Resonance Investigation”, and the more free-form “Vocal Extensions”, which uses live electronic processing. “My reason for producing the LP was to get my music out to the world beyond NYC and the major cities in which I was playing concerts,” she says. “At that time, Carla Bley and Michael Mantler had started JCOA/New Music Distribution Service which handled small independent labels, so there were quite a few artists in the NYC area who were producing their own albums and distributing them through that service.” Just out of college and living in a Soho loft in New York, Joan began playing shows in New York with jazz and rock musicians, and with those in the new music scene. “I did commercials, which, strangely enough, led me to Steve Reich,” she says. “A composer I was working with, Michael Sahl hired me to do some radio commercials and suggested me to Reich who was looking for singers who could imitate instruments, which was something I had been working on for some time and was part of my exploration of the voice. I worked with Reich on the development of “Drumming”, imitating the marimba.”

    raul lovisoni francesco messina – prati bagnati del monte analogo – die schachtel

    $24.00 Add to cart

    Originally published in 1979 by the legendary Gianni Sassi’s Cramps Records label as part of a series curated by Franco Battiato, the long-awaited Prati Bagnati del Monte Analogo is finally made available by Die Schachtel in a repackaged deluxe edition, fully remastered (by Giuseppe Ielasi) from the original Cramps tapes, and complete with three extra tracks (in the CD edition) dug from Francesco Messina’s archives. Produced by Franco Battiato, the breathtaking oeuvre of Francesco Messina and Raul Lovisoni is openly inspired by the unfinished metaphysical novel Le Mont Analogue, by the French writer René Daumal, who had been for many years a student of the teachings of the enigmatic Armenian Georges Ivanovich Gurdjieff. The reference to Gurdjieff is important in order to frame this work in its own context, because at that time the great Greek-Armenian mystic was beginning to exert a large influence into the diverse and stimulating artistic environment that for many years developed around Battiato, which included, among the others, Juri Camisasca, Francesco Messina and Giusto Pio. Battiato’s entourage was characterized by a deep desire of spirituality that would not adhere to a particular faith, but rather involved a full opening of the mind and body. This spiritual quest, that one can hear shining through the music, was something intimate and personal and it never became the expression of religious extremists looking forward to life in another world. Similarly, Prati Bagnati del Monte Analogo is a stage of that journey that the artists developed independently, yet with a constant tension of the spirit resulting from years of readings and reflections shared with others. The music on this album is an exact compendium of such an intimate journey: drones and overtones, repetitive patterns, a deep, meditative feel, and space atmospheres. “Writing this on a Sunday afternoon during breaks taken from restoring two zithers from the late 19th century. I love the instruments not only for their beautiful craftsmanship and sound, but for what they’ve seen, the stories in which they’ve played a part, and the journey that brought them to me. Francesco Messina and Raul Lovisoni’s Prati Bagnati del Monte Analogo is playing on a loop as so many times in the past, coloring the space I inhabit with its glowing overtones, spreading its majestic quietness. Taking as a starting point an unfinished utopian novel, written by French pataphysician René Daumal, in which is described the ascension of a mountain connecting Earth and Heaven, the three compositions take us on a journey through the rich green pastures of Mount Analogue, occasionally pausing beneath veils of light, only to stride determinedly onwards, to the realms of an ancient wind deity. At some point during this incursion, you may find yourself in a landscape set out by John Cage, witnessing Vainqueur, Substance and Resilient as children chanting their vocoded chants, or else enter a false portal planting you in Anthony Moore’s cloud and ballroom. While the subject matter is esoteric and the music makes no attempt to conceal this fact, it’s time we released these haunting pieces from the demesne of obscurity. Messina and Lovisoni have created a work of radiant beauty, oneiric states waiting to be explored, to lose ourselves in.” –Stephan Mathieu, from the liner notes

    “book of dreams” was inspired by notes about dreams i wrote down shortly after i woke up from my sleep. in those strange moments between phantasy and reality, when you can still remember the images and feelings of the dream before they are rubbed off by daytime thoughts and troubles. the compositions which can be heard on this album trying to recapture those images and feelings, mixed with a second thought, kind of a sober interpretation of the sometimes wild and furious adventures with somnia.
    modular synth stuff for inner explorations.

    niko the charming geek, alone with friends, locked in a space with trees and a table, which is covered for all. everything stops around you and it takes a while until you realize that it only runs much slower.
    he simply took this old, detuned guitar in the night and played.
    so, naturally the guitar fell in love with him and they became good friends.
    and whenever niko left the studio to visit his beautiful wife and his lovely daughter at the city,
    the guitar started to cry.
    the more you turn the record,
    the clearer are the little voices of the sad guitar in empty space.
    so, sit down! (cristof wlemang)
    charming and poetic tracks to bewitch you and your family.
    celebrate life and spin this record.

    e jugend – history works – cosmic winnetou

    out of stock

    this album has been on a hold literally for ages and for diverse reasons. “history works” earmarks the final installment in e jugend’s work trilogy that led to previously released albums “formate heaven syntax hell” (saucerlike recordings, 2001) and “last exit wedding” (taping desk o-phon mania, 2007). as stubborn as ever yet presenting a kaleidoscopic take on aesthetics and texture, “history works” depicts no. 5’s and no. 9’s somnambulistic ability to forge equally dense and minimalistic tapestries of sound. again, the approach seems driven by intuition as much as by the endless search for the most interesting sound, resulting in a different cornucopia of righteous melodies. over the years the first-take approach along with the improv-method lead e jugend into the true heart of compositional darkness, fitting perfectly to the specific setting of these recordings.
    original and witty kraut excursions done by sophisticated masters of this genre.

    la monte young/marian zazeela – theatre of eternal music – dream house 78’17”- aguirre

    out of stock

    Sold out, will not be repressed. This classic minimal music album is now available again on vinyl for the first time since the ’70s. La Monte Young, widely acknowledged as the father of musical minimalism, is one of the most influential contemporary composers. Yet he has strictly monitored his own discography and his music is rarely heard. Born in a log cabin in rural Idaho in 1935, Young became a key figure in the New York underground art scene of the early 1960s. He made vital contributions to the Fluxus movement and initiated the use of lofts as performance venues. Most important of all, his exploration of sustained tones, unorthodox tuning, high volume, and long duration changed the course of 20th-century music and ushered in new ways of listening. This LP, initially issued on the French Shandar label in 1973, is a crucial document, preserving two manifestations of Young’s pioneering creative imagination. Its sounds lift the listener out of routine temporality into a prolonged and personal here and now; an intimate kind of time that no clocks can measure. The first side contains a performance by the Theatre of Eternal Music in which the voices of Young and his partner Marian Zazeela are combined with the trombone of Garrett List and the trumpet of Jon Hassell. Although the immediate impression created by the music is that it changes little, close listening reveals intricate activity in the high harmonics where unexpected patterns and phantom melodies skitter across the surface of the music’s enveloping drone. Young and Zazeela developed their vocal technique through their intensive discipleship of North Indian singing master Pandit Pran Nath, and traces of that influence can be heard in their subtle ornamentation of the sustained tones. Unadorned sine waves form the Drift Study on the second side of the LP. To a seated listener this Drift Study seems a very pure form of minimalist musical drone, but if one moves around the space in which the piece is playing, dramatic variation in the loudness of different frequencies will become apparent, while the listener’s movement will itself alter the structure of air molecules in the room, affecting the way the piece is heard. It’s a fascinating probe into the nature of sound, hearing, and spatial awareness. “My own feeling is that if people aren’t carried away to heaven I’m failing” –La Monte Young, 1966. First reissue. Edition of 1000. Licensed from FGL Productions. Remastered by Equus. Lacquer cut by Rashad Becker. Preserves original artwork. Includes insert with new, exclusive liner notes by Julian Cowley.
