Michael Snow Vinyl, CD & tapes by Michael Snow at Norman Records
Originally released on the Art Metropole label in 1987, The Last LP: Unique Last Recordings of the Music of Ancient Cultures is a collection of songs from under-threat and now-extinct cultures - or are they?
Artist Michael Snow said as much in the notes of the original release, but in fact, he made the remarkable recordings across this LP himself.
Filmmaker and artist Michael Snow tends towards the avant-garde in everything he does, and this musical work, initially released in 1975, is no exception. This is Music For Piano, Whistling, Microphone and Tape Recorder, and the results of that set-up are a beguiling whirl of sounds and silences well worth your time. Double LP reissue on Song Cycle.
