Michael Vincent Waller
Moments

Unseen Worlds (Leo Svirsky, Laurie Spiegel) present the third LP from NYC-based composer Michael Vincent Waller. Composed for piano and vibraphone, Moments is a lengthy set of contemporary classical pieces that takes in by turns the tranquility of Erik Satie, the momentum of Steve Reich and the avant-melodiousness of Peter Zummo.

Leo Svirsky
River Without Banks

Leo Svirsky is a contemporary classical composer of rare deftness. His pieces spool out like running water, and as such it’s apt that his new LP should be entitled River Without Banks. Arranged for two pianos and various accompanying instruments, Svirsky’s music is tranquil, stirring and extremely lovely. Gas, Peter Zummo and Michael Nyman all come to mind when listening to River Without Banks.

Carl Stone
Electronic Music from the Seventies and Eighties

Minimalist electronic collages made by Carl Stone betweens the 70s and 80s. Before he decided to manipulate everything through a laptop Stone used turntables and captured micro loops of disparate electronic sound sources, pushing them together into these huge, yet minimal tonal experiments. With notes from Carl Stone, and exclusive digital only track.

“Blue” Gene Tyranny and Peter Gordon
Trust In Rock

A big concert from 1976 at Berkeley University, featuring Peter Gordon and key Robert Ashley collaborator “Blue” Gene Tyranny leading an ensemble in playing their own works. It sounds like a real special night, withrock taken to whole new areas via Kathy Acker lyrics, RMI synthesiser, clavinet, and a generally blasting attitude. Your Trust In Rock will be reinstated by this serious reissue by Unseen Worlds.

“Blue” Gene Tyranny
Out Of The Blue

The first-ever vinyl reissue for “Blue” Gene Tyranny’s 1978 debut album, and newly re-mastered too. Out of the Blue managed to merge funk with futurism, turning familiar musical elements into something shocking and new. The four-track collection culminates in the side-long, 25-minute ‘A Letter From Home’. 

Laurie Spiegel
Unseen Worlds

Big gorgeous electronic wonder from Laurie Spiegel. Unseen Worlds was composed with the use of software specially created by Spiegel for her own purposes (Music Mouse, still loved and used today), and has only had limited releases in 1991 and 1994 before now. Unseen Worlds (the label) now give Unseen Worlds (the album) the full attention it deserves, on CD and vinyl.

Laurie Spiegel
The Expanding Universe

Megatron edition of Laurie Spiegel’s groundbreaking 1980 LP ‘The Expanding Universe’ here. All four of the original tracks are included here, remastered for extra shine, radiating vibes that would later be picked up on by the likes of Oneohtrix Point Never and Tim Hecker. On this new pressing ‘The Expanding Universe’ is expanded yet further by a whopping fifteen bonus tracks - many of which are previously unreleased.

Sam Ashley & Werner Durand
I’d Rather Be Lucky Than Good / Love Among The Immortals

Werner Durand and Sam Ashley (son of Robert) have known one another since 1984, but only now have they taken to the studio for a recorded collaboration. I’d Rather Be Lucky Than Good / Love Among The Immortals features two side-long pieces of shamanic minimalism with wind instruments, spoken word and electronics. Captures some of that crucial Ashley flavour. On Unseen Worlds.

Maria Monti
Il Bestario

A true cult classic if ever there was one, Maria Monti is an actress who also made super intense, wildly avant-garde music spanning folk, pop, cabaret and more. Il Bestario is a twist and a turn at every corner, both beautifully pastoral and abrasively clashing. Its reissue via Unseen Worlds has ambient lord Taylor Deupree helming the remaster.

Philip Corner
EXTREEMIZMS, early & late

Very exciting release this one: a bunch of Phillip Corner’s experimental instrumental pieces, from both 1958 and 2015-2016. Nine pieces, performed primarily by Silvia Tarozzi and Deborah Walker but also with notable additions from Rhodri Davies and Corner himself! EXTREEMIZMS, early & late is a remarkable and crucial set of strange and underheard music, out from Unseen Worlds.
