Craig Leon
Anthology Of Interplanetary Folk Music Vol. 2: The Canon

Craig Leon (who produced the first Ramones and Suicide albums!) revisits the ideas he established on his 80s records. Along with regular collaborator Cassell Webb, Leon explores the abstract and the alien to near euphoric effect. Anthology Of Interplanetary Folk Music Vol. 2: The Canon has been a long time coming. It was worth the wait. On RVNG Intl.

The Berlin Music Ensemble conducted by Craig Leon
The Film Scores and Original Orchestral Music of George Martin

George Martin is of course best known for his close involvement with those Beatles that everyone likes so much, but the man is too much of a maestro to be limited to just that reputation. This new recording by the Berlin Music Ensemble showcases a range of Martin’s work as a classical composer and arranger, from Live And Let Die to Under Milk Wood, via his own original suites. CD and double LP set on Atlas Realisations.

Craig Leon
Bach To Moog

Oh no it isn't! Oh yes it moogingly well is! It’s Johann Sebastian Bach set to moog synthesizer. Produced by Craig Leon, with the exception of strings every sound on the album is driven out of the bizarre and wonderful moog, which celebrates it’s 50th anniversary in 2015 and also the 10th anniversary of the death of its creator, Dr. Robert Moog. Bach to Moog is playful fun, embrace it!

Anthology of Interplanetary Folk Music Vol. 1: Nommos / Visiting

RIYL: Steve Reich, Brian Eno, Cluster, 4th World Music, Extraterrestrial Musicology. The first - and only - Craig Leon-approved reissue of his two solo albums Nommos and Visiting.  Craig Leon’s seminal synthesizer albums Nommos and Visiting are finally re-editioned in definitive form as the Anthology of Interplanetary Folk Music Vol. 1 for RVNG Intl.’s archival series. Issued respectively by John Fahey’s Takoma record label in 1980 and Leon’s Arbitor private press in 1982, Nommos and Visiting were the twin brainchildren of studio wizard Craig Leon. Leon’s production was pivotal in realizing the debut recordings by Ramones, Blondie, Richard Hell and Suicide. While those albums broke ground in new worlds of sound, Leon’s own debut album was arguably, if not literally, more alien.
