• an anthology of noise & electronic music 1921-2001  (double CD, £13.50)

    label: sub rosa

    This is the great beginning of a vast anthology of "noise and electronic music". This volume begins in the 1920s, with the Russolo brothers, and looks at each decade in turn - Varèse, Cage, Schaeffer, Xenakis, the great pioneers - the first traces of a music that was necessarily revolutionary: electronic music, created from nothing (and hence to be entirely invented). some pieces on these CDs are certainly classics, but there are others, which, though old, were distributed informally or never even released. our more contemporary pieces are, wherever possible, previously unreleased.
