A regular survey of internet resources.
The WFMU ‘Modified guitars’ collection has only 5 tracks but they are worth the try. Featuring Killick Erick Hinds, Elliott Sharp, Marco Cappelli, Paolo Angeli & Derek Bailey. Adventurous and melodic guitar experiments akin to Fred Frith 1974 ‘Guitar Solos’.
Chain Tape Collective is a netlabel operating on a collaborative mode, with each album a thematic and collective effort. This one, ‘Location Volume 1’ is their refreshing stake on field recording, where they unashamedly add sound treatments and instruments to their source material. So, no ayatollah of field recording here – know what I’m saying? At CT Collective.
Toronto based Deep Wireless Festival of Radio Art launched several online CDs, among which this double CD available for free download: ‘Deep Wireless #3’. Excellent contributions by american and canadian radio producers.
The consistently interesting Rock Progressivo Portugues blog recently posted an amazing tape by Ocaso Épico, 1989 ‘Desperdícios‘, including Carlos Cordeiro & Carlos Zingaro. Very pleasant experimental music, not unlike some H.N.A.S. stuff, if you’re familiar. Here.
Erling Wold offers many mp3s on his website. I enjoyed his 1988 ‘Music of Love’ CD, offered here along several other albums, in the ‘Works’ section. Wold was featured on Tellus cassette #14 ‘Just Intonation’, so you get the picture.
ShameFile Music reissue their New Music Australia magazine and tape series. I love 1989 NMA tape #7 , ‘Performance and radio pieces, environmental compositions, music theatre’. Featuring: Jon Rose, sound ecologist Ron Nagorcka, Helen Gifford with excerpts from her Faustus opera, Percy Grainger’s ballet music, a.o. Lovely.
