Tom Dissevelt & Kid Baltan - Song Of The Second Moon (1968)

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=0hw4xd5zCrE&index=3&list=PLa7DwXF9n16E78eQcyAbDEqzutt2zJ6oG

The tracks originally surfaced in 1962, some bits inevitably being made during the 50s. 

That’s pretty ancient in the world of electronic music, and what better label to reissue it than the same label as the upcoming reissue of Mort Garson’s Plantasia, as enjoyed by NR psych monkey Robin. 

This one here is in a few places at once - earlier on, you’re treated to the sounds of broken nursery rhymes, moving to more atonal musique concrete that feels like the Otto Luenings, Pierre Henrys and Pierre Schaeffers of the time as you progress through the first side. 

Weird synth flourishes burst out of nowhere, creating an almost theatrical sense of drama. 

In fact, the aforementioned sides of this record’s sound are often jumped between haphazardly by Dissevelt & Baltan.

Is this record the prog music of the 50s? Perhaps not, but it’s a large cache of interesting and unpredictable synth music.

If Alfred Hitchcock made a suspense film set on a futuristic planet, this would be the score to accompany it. 

As the title of the album suggests, the music on this recording is meant to evoke visions of space and the boundless worlds that exist just beyond our reach. 

Many attempts at this type of sound have failed; it is easy to go overboard with gimmicky swooshing and beepity bloop effects. 

This is not that kind of album, as a full orchestra is put to serious work, which both inspires and haunts. 

A great balance between acoustic and electronic is struck, with heavy uses of woodwinds, brass, and theremin. 

Close your eyes when you listen to this one.

Str8 Sounds "Sonic Weapons Against UFOs"

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ia3NyDkxb6M&feature=youtu.be

While I tend to stick with traditional techno music in my live Str8 Sounds performances, in my studio, anything goes. I tend to do a lot more experimental soundscapes in private.

Preventing hostile extraterrestrial spacecraft from invading and attacking Earth.

Studio jam on Moog Sub 37 Tribute Edition paraphonic analog synthesizer and Roland V-Synth (version 2) granular processing, COSM filter, physical modeling, variphrase, elastic audio synthesizer.

Pioneer DJ and Dave Smith Instruments new stand-alone (not tethered to a computer) TORAIZ SP-16 Sampler / Step Sequencer ($1,499).

https://www.pioneerdj.com/en-us/product/production/toraiz-sp-16/black/overview/

Create Digital Music states:

"That should already make MPC fans go wild, long disappointed by Akai’s unwillingness to make new hardware. But as if that weren’t enough, Pioneer also has this ace in the hole: they can bake “Pro DJ Link” right into the hardware so you can plug and play with CDJs.

Unfortunately, we don’t get a drum machine with design input from Dave Smith (maker of the Tempest) or Roger Linn (creator of the Linndrum and MPC). 

But we do get Dave Smith Instruments’ filters – one four-pole, resonant, low-pass filter, and one two-pole high-pass filter. 

This means Pioneer can claim they’ve got some “analog” sound in the box, and get some extra credibility from the legacy of the Prophet. 

The four-pole filter is from the Prophet-6 synth, and “inspired by” the original Prophet-5 filter from 1978. (CDM is currently awaiting some comment and clarification from DSI about exactly which filter designs are there.)

The filters are apparently a big deal to Pioneer, who make it a banner feature of the instrument and will feature Dave Smith himself at Musikmesse.

The low-pass filter has resonance and drive controls. The filter comes from the Prophet-6 synth."

Art Mineo "Man in Space with Sounds" (1962)

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=BUOAxm8FS4U

I've not been able to track down precisely what synthesizers are used here, but at the time, heavy reverb (often accomplished on large sound lab devices) was a huge thing for these "modernistic compositions with alien-sounding effects laboriously produced on pre-Moog electronic instruments."

[Side note: I know that Novachords were commonly used in "space music", being the world's first commercial polyphonic synthesizer. 

All-electronic, incorporating many circuit and control elements found in modern synthesizers, and using subtractive synthesis to generate tones, it was designed by John M. Hanert, Laurens Hammond, and C. N. Williams, and was manufactured by the Hammond company. 

Only 1,069 Novachords were built over a period from 1939 to 1942.]

These all-original compositions fall somewhere between nervous Philip Glass and 1950s sci-fi movie music, arranged with string orchestra in a sometimes rhythmic, polyrhythmic, or merely ambient cloud of odd electronic space noises.

Recorded in 1951 but only released in conjunction with the 1962 Seattle World's Fair as the musical accompaniment to the Bubbelator, a transparent, spherical elevator that carried as many as 150 passengers, Attilio Mineo's "Man in Space with Sounds" remains one of the most foreboding and complex records in the cosmic exotica canon.

Decades of water under the Space Needle have imbued it with kitsch value on par with similarly "far out" orchestral space music recordings by Esquivel, Richard Marino, Paul Tanner, Frank Comstock, and Martin Denny.

But if you look past its inherited irony, there's an uneasy dichotomy to "Man in Space with Sounds" that's as old as our dreams.

In the narrated version of this album, a World's Fair tour guide narrates Mineo's compositions with canned enthusiasm and period nonsequiturs, but the music itself can be disorienting, even bleak.

"If there is one theme which dominates our tour in space, it is man's eternal search for a brighter future," Mineo cautions--with horror-flick string melodies and frigid electronic oscillations floating in and out of orchestra music.

A dark, dissonant exploration of interstellar travel rooted in the avant-garde ethos of John Cage and Karlheinz Stockhausen, this is music that's alien not only in its presentation but also in its orientation, fusing traditional instrumentation and sound effects to the point that one becomes indistinguishable from the other.

Electronic elements pulse, hum, and sputter their way to complete domination of Mineo's sonic palette, depicting a bleak, sterile future where mankind gives way to machinery.

Two versions of the LP were released, one with World's Fair voice-over narration and the other without, and the former is all the more chilling for its seeming ambivalence to technology's awesome power.

 *Emil Richards "New Sound Element—Stones"*

LP, UNI Records 73008. Release date: June 1967. Moog programmer: Paul Beaver.

Emil Richards, New Sound Element–Stones, with Richards assisted by Paul Beaver. Produced by Marshall Leib. 

Richards is another well-known Los Angeles session musician. Although Paul Beaver set-up the Moog, Richards was actively engaged in experimenting with the synthesizer for this session. 

Richards said, “Beaver assisted as programmer for these sessions. I played the synthesizer and all mallet instruments on all twelve tracks.”

This is the first commercial recording to credit the “Moog Synthesizer” by name. This, too, was a concept album, in this case revolving around twelve birthstones. Songs had titles such as “Garnet (January),” “Emerald (May),’ and “Opal (October).

 The music is decidedly jazzy, so one could call this the first Moog jazz recording. 

Side musicians included members of Richard’s jazz combo, New Sound Element: Dave Mackay (piano), Bill Plummer (bass), Mike Craden (percussion) and Joe Porcaro (drums). 

The album was both an experiment in rhythm patterns and also featured mallet instruments using a 22-tone octave. 

The Moog sounds right at home in this sonically daring environment.

I love this Barnes & Noble bookstore and shop there all the time. The atmosphere is cozy and friendly, so the customer experience is very pleasant. I'll sit there and skim through books of interest while my wife shops over at the nearby Michaels craft store. I buy all my books there and most music CDs too. Special ordering is a breeze and the orders arrive quickly. Staff workers are kind and extremely helpful and knowledegable, unlike most other retail stores. The book selection is great and new titles are constantly arriving. If this store closed, I would be very depressed. As a book worm, I just love hanging out and perusing the aisles. I also like buying Computer Music magazine (UK) there and have also purchased various non-print items like tote bags and moleskin journals. Keep up the great work B&N.

Castle's Patio Inn is the very definition of a cozy, friendly neighborhood bar/restaurant. Formerly Ray's Patio Inn, this place has the Lexus of garlic cheese spread. It's a world famous cheese that's a family tradition for Peorians and Central Illinois. You can't have Thanksgiving, Christmas, or New Year's without a crock of Castle's Patio Inn garlic cheese spread. They serve a small crock and Ritz crackers to any patron who asks for it, and it tastes great with a couple beers or sodas. Wonderful establishment. Unique and fun.
