L'Occident Est Bleu / L'An Cinquante-Six
LP | 2016 | EU | Original (Aurora Rising)
17,99 €* 19,99 € -10%
Release:2016 / EU – Original
Genre:Electronic / Dance
Reissued for the first time! Plus 2 Bonus Tracks! Pierre Henry is most popular among rock fans for his collaboration with the English band SPOOKY TOOTH in 1969 but already had a great reputation as composer and performer in the field of modern classics, musique concrète and pioneering electronic avant garde. And so it is obvious that there have been quite a few albums by him and in cooperation with other artists not necessarily from the field of music. This record at hand dates back to 1958 and has been issued in an utterly limited quantity of 333 copies which nowadays go for 400,00+ EUROS among collectors. It features sound contributions by Pierre Henry, spoken word performances by popular French actors Michel Vitold and Silvia Montfort basing on two texts by fellow actor and singer Claude Pascal. It can be rather seen as an audio book than a regular music record backed with sounds. And the musical part of this album is even quite intense with a haunting atmosphere. If you understand French fairly well it will certainly bring you even more joy. This is a haunting affair, droning and disturbing at times. The drone music, the musique concrète shows the roots of what should become cosmic music in the late 60s and early 70s performed mostly by artists such as TANGERINE DREAM. And indeed there are a few moments here that remind me of the classic „Zeit“ double album by Edgar Froese and his mates. You have to engage in this record if you want to really enjoy it for this is just utterly strange. A sound experiment, a twisted and creepy manifestation of weird thoughts in something that is loosely connected to music. A challenge for sure. But if you love the obscure and have a heart for avant garde music you are welcome to this first ever reissue of a long time vanished record.

A Poem In Cycles And Bells & Other Music ...
LP | 1957 | EU | Reissue (Aurora Rising)
19,99 €*
Release:1957 / EU – Reissue
Genre:Electronic / Dance
You would never believe this record to be a relic from a past of electronic music that happened before anybody even spoke about rock music. In 1957 this compilation of electronic and orchestral compositions by the three masterminds Otto Luening, Vladimir Ussachevsky and William Bergsma saw the light of the stars for the first time and has become a cult piece among lovers of electronic space music since then, despite the fact that only the first side features the so called tape compositions of Luening and Ussachevsky from the 50s while Bergsma's lengthy piece from the B side gets performed by a regular orchestra consisting of living beings. You certainly have to lay back and let yourself drift away upon this stream of sound but it is still a very human effort all in all. All instruments are for real and even though this piece of music moves within the narrow borderlines of classic orchestral music patterns, there is a warm and gentle flow of energy pouring out of it and reaching out for your mind. Luening and Ussachevsky on the other hand work with sounds of undefined origin recorded on tape reels which are their main instruments for creating something new out of everything. The result is dark and gloomy. It pulls you away from your earthly existence and drags you out into space to the furthest corners of the cosmos. This is the right music for all lovers of spaced out sounds from the days before the synthesizer.

This is the reissue of a 1958 album by Henk Badings and Dick Raajmakers (a.k.a. Kid Baltan), composers, arrangers, conductors and pioneers in the field of electronic music. Including five bonus tracks, this is definitely an album for true enthusiasts of strange electronic sounds who consider early Tangerine Dream to be fluffy pop music. Far out, folks, far out, and therefore just great.

LP | 1963 | EU | Reissue (Aurora Rising)
15,99 €* 19,99 € -20%
Release:1963 / EU – Reissue
Genre:Electronic / Dance
This album from 1963 is somewhat of a curiosity for it was actually conceived as educational, open-minded children's music. Despite the fact that the sound you listen to here is mash up of story telling for kids and simple, happy sing-along music mixed with loads of electronic effects making it an utterly spacey affair, original copies in great condition fetch up to $250 among collectors. Now this reissue will make sure, this cult album can be enjoyed by more people crazy for early '60s electronic music.
