Harry Bertoia
Experimental I / Mechanical I

A project endeavouring to resurrect the archive of Harry Bertoia’s groundbreaking work with his Sonambient label, Experimental I / Mechanical I presents some entirely unheard work from his vaults, and is so titled because of the nature of the songs selected. CD edition includes bonus track ‘Long Sounds’. 

Harry Bertoia
Clear Sounds / Perfetta

The ‘Sonambient’ sound sculptures of Harry Bertoia are astonishing things: the sleeve art for this new release gives you an insight into the roomfuls of shimmering metals Bertoia designed. Clear Sounds and Perfetta are two particularly remarkable, highly minimal performances, never previously released.

Harry Bertoia
Sonambients: The Sound Sculpture Of Harry Bertoia

The otherworldly recordings Harry Bertoia made on his self-designed sound sculptures had become largely unavailable over the years, a situation somewhat rectified by Important Records’ recent Sonambient boxset. This new CD/DVD combo makes a more affordable introduction to Bertoia’s work, while being absolutely essential for anyone already hooked. The DVD contains a 1971 documentary showing the artist performing on his sculptures in his Pennsylvania barn. The accompanying audio disc features newly uncovered 1969 recordings on which Harry is joined by brother Oreste and sister Ave. If you’re a fan of drone, sound art, ambient or electronic music, this is not to be missed.
