Complete Sonambient Recordings Of Harry Bertoia (11 CD Box set)


Label: Important Records 419 Release Date: 12/11/2015 UPC: 793447541921

 

SPECIAL MLA SALE $ 74.97 Offered only here. This is a time sensitive SALE

In the late fifties Harry Bertoia began working on long-form improvised
compositions by utilizing pure acoustic tones produced using his own pure
metal sound sculptures. Bertoia coined the term "Sonambient" to desribe the
music of his sculptures and the lush overtones they evoked, renovated a barn
on his property deep in the PA woods, and often recorded his nightly
sessions in the barn using 4 overhead microphones and a 1/4" tape recorder.
Bertoia dedicated the last twenty years of his life to his Sonambient work
and in 1970 he released the first Sonambient LP. In 1978, in the final
months of his life, he selected recordings from his archive and produced 10
more Sonambient records. He would not live long enough to see these records
in person. The Complete Sonambient Collection features all 11 Bertoia
Sonambient releases newly restored from the original master reels. A heavy
duty box holds 11 CDs each packaged in replica sleeves and a 100 page
booklet contains a lengthy historic essay, a Smithsonian interview with
Harry Bertoia, exclusive Sonambient era material from the Bertoia archive,
photos of the Sonambient barn during Harry's lifetime and updated with many
shots of the barn today. Also included are reflections on Bertoia from David
Sefton, Tom Welsh, David Harrington (Kronos Quartet) and all three of
Bertoia's children. 2015 is the centennial celebration of the birth of Harry
Bertoia on March 10, 1915. To celebrate Harry's life and work Important
Records Important Records will release a CD box set containing the complete
edition of Bertoia's privately pressed Sonambient LPs. Harry Bertoia's use
of the term Sonambient to describe both his sculptures and their sound
pre-date the term "ambient" being used to describe a form of music. The
origins of his Sonambient sculptures are found in his brilliant, early
monotypes. It wasn't until 1960 that he began the exploration of these tonal
sculptures and then not until the early seventies that he began recording
his lengthy concerts. He ritually played his meditative performances in his
post and beam barn on 200 acres in Barto, Pennsylvania up in the hills not
far away from his Bally, PA studio. It's the sacred, personal feeling one
has in Bertoia's barn that we hope to evoke with the packaging and archival
materials accompanying these recordings. "We live in a new age with sounds
never before heard. They can be strident, tranquil, violent, fluctuating,
depending on the metal, the size of the rods, or the group of the rods. I
always feel more drawn to this barn, the changes are omnipresent and every
person has the responsibility to find new ways of making things. This is
what forms our character. I cannot say that I am not unchangeable. There is
a progression in the world. It is part of my role in life to discover this
progression." Harry Bertoia 1978 The works of Harry Bertoia celebrate the
bounty of the good earth; shimmering sheafs of golden wheat stalked in
endless rows on 'the fruitful plain'; great crashing cataracts, with
crystal-pure and steel hard volutes; or the swift, mystic rushing of
myriad-rayed comets against the sky's infinity. To suggest so much, by means
so simple, is the mark of a great lyrical poet. Bertoia's sculptures and his
sounds are a conceptual string, or literal vibrations, that weave together
all of his work. You see the shape of the sound sculptures appear in his
mono-prints and suddenly even his famous chairs resonate with sounds when
you pluck at them or run a pencil down the lines. Through Sonambient,
Bertoia's lifetime of work resonates, echoes, bubbles with overtones and
comes alive. Harry's single greatest piece of art is the totality of his
life which is nearly impossible to measure but somehow easy to feel.

Analog Africa No19: Senegal 70 Sonic Gems & Previously Unreleased Recordings
From The 70s


 

Label: Analog Africa 79 Release Date: 12/18/2015 UPC: 4260126061071

 

SPECIAL MLA SALE $ 17.97 Offered only here. This is a time sensitive SALE
that ends on Dec. 18, ’15. No extensions allowed per label.

 

The brand new release by the Analog Africa Label... Senegal 70 4 years in
the making,in partnership with Teranga beat the current leading label for
Senegalese music, Analog Africa proudly offer an insight into the musical
adventures that were taking place in the major Senegalese cities during the
60s and 70s. This compilation, reflects the unique fusions of Funk, Mbalax,
Cuban Son and Mandigue guitar sounds that transformed Dakar into West
Africa´s most vibrant city. It all started in 2009 when Adamantios Kafetzis
travelled from Greece to Senegal with a brand new tape machine that he used
to digitise the musical treasures he had discovered in the city of Thiés.
These treasures took the form of reel tapes, and had been recorded by sound
engineer Moussa Diallo, who had spent the previous four decades
immortalising, onto magnetic tape, the bands that would perform in his club,
the legendary Sangomar. 300 Senegalese songs that nobody had ever heard
before were discovered - five of them were selected for this compilation.
Thanks to its history of outside influences, Senegal - the western point of
Africa - had become a musical melting pot. Cuban and American sailors had
brought Son Montuno from Cuba, Jazz from New Orleans and American soul
tunes: sounds that were swiftly embraced and adopted by urban dance bands
and intuitively merged with local music styles. One band in particular
excelled at this fusion. 1960 marks the formation of Star Band de Dakar, a
milestone that left an indelible imprint on Dakar's musical landscape.
Indeed, the whole country was soon grooving to their intoxicating mixture of
Afro Cuban rhythms and Wolof-language lyrics. The 1970s brought a new
generation of stellar bands; Le Sahel, Orchestre Laye Thiam, Number One de
Dakar, Orchestra Baobab, Dieuf Dieul de Thies and Xalam1 who fused
traditional Senegalese percussion instruments such Sabra, Tama and
Bougarabou with organs and keyboards, giving birth to new hybrids. Merging
the folkloric and the experimental, these sounds, embraced by the youth,
took centre stage and gave the previously dominant Cuban music a run for its
money. The comprehensive booklet that comes with the CD - 44 pages and with
the Double LP - 12 pages LP size - is a precious document attesting to the
decades of transformation that led to modern Senegalese music. Featuring
biographies of music producers and a legendary record cover designer, as
well as the life stories of all the groups represented here, the booklet
also includes a fantastic selection of photos that have never seen before.
