Tod Dockstader
Eight Electronic Pieces

This 1961 debut album of Tod Dockstader (originally self-released) was recorded by cover of night, using the resources of Tod’s day-job radio station to explore the new and intriguing electronic sounds of the day. Eight Electronic Pieces has a wonderful exploratory feel, with tape music, pure oscillation and musique concréte all merging together. Reissued in an edition of 500 clear vinyl LPs on Étas-Unis.

Tod Dockstader
Organized Sound: Drone; Two Fragments From Apocalypse; Water Music

Electronic minuteman Tod Dockstader was producing music in the 50s and 60s, in the days before synthesizers made that whole whole game more accessible. Remarkable to think, that. He worked as a sound engineer in films and for studios, so presumably got his mitts on all that formative gear for these late night experiments. Tracks here include those simply titled "Water Music" and "Drone", and this is truly pioneering stuff along those lines. Limited reissue on DOZ.
