Martin Bartlett
Anecdotal Electronics: Live Experiments & Other Recordings

Vinyl compilation exploring the mysteriously little-known career of experimental music composer Martin Bartlett, who studied under the likes of John Cage and recorded with home-made and self-adjusted electronic equipment before his sudden death in 1993. Companion piece to a separately released CD-only compilation Ankle On: Electronic & Orchestral Works. 

Martin Bartlett
Ankle On: Electronic & Orchestral Works

CD compilation exploring the work of Martin Bartlett, a sadly underrated and little known figure in experimental music. Before his untimely death in 1993, Bartlett worked alone and in collaboration with others, with electronics and with orchestras, leaving a wealth of compelling music. Companion piece to a vinyl-only compilation entitled Anecdotal Electronics: Live Experiments & Other Recordings.

Joan La Barbara
Voice Is The Original Instrument

Joan La Barbara is one of the most significant explorers of the voice in the American 21st century, and this crucial reissue puts her first record back in circulation. Voice Is The Original Instrument contains no other instruments, although La Barbara’s amazing extended vocal techniques may sound impossible. Reissue with original artwork on Arc Light Editions.

Joan La Barbara

Avant-vocalist Joan La Barbara was virtually in a field of one with what she was doing in 1977 at the time of Tapesongs. As the title (and the awesome cover) suggests, she starts bringing tape manipulations into her pieces for extraordinary extended-technique vocals, for extra wonder. Includes a piece she prepared with John Cage. Remastered LP reissue on Arc Light Editions.

Pekka Airaksinen
Buddhas Of Golden Light

Buddhas Of Golden Light is an old collector’s favourite, being a record of weirdo synth-stuff accompanied by improvised saxophone, courtesy of Finnish Pekka Airaksinen (former member of a group called The Sperm). But now you don’t need to fork out millions for a copy, as Arc Light Editions are reissuing it. Ripe for new discovery.
