The Electronic Panorama series are pretty good (although if you want them on vinyl you will have to spend a bit of money, I have and I think they are well worth it). Ivo Malec, Bernard Parmegiani, Pierre Schaeffer, Pierre Henry, Francois Bayle, Alireza Maschayeki, Jacob Cats, Maki Ishii, Krzysztof Penderecki, Andrzej Dobrowolski, feature on the compilations to name a few.

Toshiro Mayuzumi.
Helena Gough is one of my recent personal favourites.
Morton Subotnick.
The "OHM - The Early Gurus Of Electronic Music 1948 - 1980" compilation is really worth getting too.
Todd Dockstader.
Bo Anders Persson.
Curtis Roads can be quite interesting.
David Tudor, most notably the Neural Synthesis recordings.
Ragnar Grippe early stuff, and Åke Hodell.
Janek Schaefer.

Quite a few great releases-artists have been mentioned already.

Biota seems to loosely fit in this category. First heard them in 1988 while working at a record store in NYC. They seem to have been largely overlooked my many of the "scenes" which their sound skirts the fringes of.

In the eighties I used to huddle next to my portable radio/tape recorder, the only stereo system I had, and record the broadcasts of the Stockholm Electronic Music Festival. Every year, new electro-acoustic works would be showcased, and the ABC would broadcast the recordings, hours of them, for me to tape.

I tried to look up the Stockholm Electronic Music Festival just before and got a whole load of "electronic music festivals" crap, basically excuses for more techno wanks. So, does anyone know if this particular event still exist, then?

As you say it's hard to find any information on the Stockholm EMF; I'm more than certain that there are enough stockholmers here to fill you in. Would be surprised if this wasn't involved: http://www.elektronmusikstudion.se/. (that's not about concrete music / EAM though, I'm sure there is a bunch of purists who would frown at that lack of distinction between techniques...). A big blank in my knowledge of Swedish music history, I would be glad if someone could fill me in beyond what wikipedia has to say about it.

This particular festival doesn't exist anymore. The event was a collaboration between the Swedish Radio and the legendary Electronic Music Studio (EMS) and went on between 1979 and (I think) 1982. The Fylkingen venue/society/label released some compilation LP's from these events, see here: http://www.fylkingen.se/fyrec

Then it continued with another Swedish electronic music festival in the rural village of Skinnskatteberg, from the mid 80's until some years ago. People like Stockhausen and Frieder Butzmann played there. Over the last decade the tradition has been upheld with the Norberg Festival, which is hosted at an abandoned mining site. EMS is one of the stakeholders here too. They just announced the lineup for this year (July 28-30) which looks tasty indeed... including Lustmord, Sudden Infant and Raionbashi.

Listening to Tarab - Surfacedrift (2004), and some of it reminds me of an expansive Small Cruel Party.  I have all three Tarab albums, and they're all impressive.  Need to find a copy of the Acquiescence 3"CD.   And now that I'm looking at past listening notes...

Tarab - Take All the Ships from the Harbour, and Sail Them Straight into Hell 2009 - another great Tarab album - one track; 55+ minutes - Small Cruel Party, Eric La Casa, Zoviet France, JGrzinich, Hands To, Nebris...if you like long, organic, beautifully told sonic stories, here you go - quality listening - RECOMMENDED.

Doesn't add up how I'm somehow more enthusiastic about other artists who aren't as consistent, or as quality, as Tarab reminds me that he is.

Pierre Henry -

has a lot of good stuff. Especially I enjoy his collaboration with then contemporary rockers Spooky Tooth on the album Ceremony. A classic from '69.

The three Aerial CDs are all I've heard but are very good.

I didn't know anythng about "Eros plus Massacre" other than it's a great title. I think I originally ran across it in a book & the title just stuck in my head.

anestis logothetis

fantasmata 1960 ... http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=PuHJJOMd70s

hard to believe this was composed in 1960. was performed at hermann nitsch's first public aktion in 1963. as "proto-noise" as it comes


josef anton riedl

paper music ... http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=uM_iIcoZnvY

riedl worked at both grm and wdr. work spans musique concrete, pure electronic music, sound poetry, fluxus style pieces, etc. very diverse output, all absolutely amazing


pierre-andre arcand

the eres trilogy is hands down my all time favourite music. the first volume is on ubuweb ... http://www.ubu.com/sound/arcand.html ... i think the second volume is my favourite but it's a real tough call, especially between the first and second volumes.

Quote from: ubuweb
Tape loop accumulations. All pieces are composed in real time with the loop box: a customized stereo tape recorder which allows, by means of short variable loops, delays and overlaps, to construct a constantly changing continuum of sounds. The verbal, the vocal (inhaled, exhaled), the various noises, these acoustic phenomena are processed on the spot and the piece demonstrates the structuring procedure.

Short and shifting loops, delays and overlaps create a constantly renewed continuum of concrete or instrumental or vocal sounds and acoustic reverberation, which after a while spatializes the sound, invading the whole space in its exponential development. A true magnetophony.

for fans of aaron dilloway, jason lescalleet, etc. never really hear a whole lot of discussion about arcand (as far as i can see anyway) but i couldn't recommend these discs any higher. i don't know how many times i've listened to them now and they never fail to floor me. as a curiosity, the discs are only available as individual cd's but the track numbers continue from previous volumes (the tracks on eres +16 are indexed from 8 - 16, eres +21 has 17 - 21)


and speaking of jason lescalleet, the two collab discs with graham lambkin are incredible. don't think i've heard anything from either that i haven't loved though

There's a fairly recent Editions Mego sublabel called Recollection GRM which is a "series of reissues of records and archival recordings from Groupe De Recherches Musicales, produced by Peter Rehberg in coordination with Christian Zanési & François Bonnet at GRM" (from Discogs). They're all LPs, 8 so far: http://editionsmego.com/releases/recollection-grm/
I have 6 of them, listened to 3 so far (Pierre Schaeffer, Guy Reibel and Ivo Malec). They're all great, with excellent vinyl pressing quality. The Schaeffer is his only electronic piece, very different from his classic musique concrete. Reibel sounds very modern, it could easily pass as electroacoustic music of today. Malec is very electronic too, with some other sources (like a young woman's voice in one piece). The atmosphere is surprisingly mysterious at a few places.
They're all what someone has once described as "cinema for the ears". Especially the Reibel LP is pretty intense: lots happening. I don't claim I understand or am able to discern the structure of the pieces (no doubt they're there, but perhaps I should be a trained musician for that?) but it doesn't bother me cause the sounds and the pieces are great anyway.
All in all, a fantastic series that I hope will keep on going.

Good album! Don't blame you for digging it, it's got a lot to offer. But I'm going to have to track it down because that website sure is glitchy.

No, first introduction to it. Sounds great (what I've heard). A shame such gems fall through the cracks.
