What a bargain! For a mere ten of your earth pounds you can purchase this captivating and educational 3CD collection highlighting the work of experimental early electronic composers including Cage, Stockhausen, Joe Meek, Iannis Xenakis, Edgard Varese, Sun Ra, Pierres Henry and Schaeffer and many more! It’s a superbly selected mix of largely classic tracks, including such iconic pieces as Meek’s ‘Entry Of The Globbots’ and ‘Telstar’ and Louis & Bebe Barron’s ‘Forbidden Planet’ theme, along with some pieces I’ve never heard before.
It’s all very well sequenced, and unlike some early experimental compilations the choices here are generally dramatic and accessible despite the sometimes challengingly weird delivery methods, although there are some slower and more meditative pieces too. If you’re a long-time fan of early experimental composers then there’s a chance you’ll already have a decent chunk of this material, but if you’re still finding your way around the mysterious world of vintage electronics it’ll provide an invaluable walk through some of the greats who have brought music to the point it’s at today in a concise and easily digested three disc set. Great value!
