A few from the vintage vaults this fortnight including the first track Bicycle Built For Two (1961) by computer music pioneer Max Mathews. Also, Concret PH (1958) by Iannis Xenakis, Musique Concrete (1959) by Jan Boerman, and the delightful Silver Apples Of The Moon (1967) by Morton Subotnick.

A couple of people of interest to me at the moment are Asmus Tietchens and AGF, more will be revealed about this interest at a later date. We hear the track Die Liebe, Ohne Ralf by Asmus Tiechens from the compilation Listen To Something Different (Ars Macabre, 2007) and from AGF we hear Zwangsam Schwierig from her album Head Slash Bauch (Orthlorng Musork). Stay tuned…

From Australia, we have some interesting music by Time Being from the compilation VIVA [section], Shannon O’Neill from his album Minimal/Liminal, and two tracks by the fascinating John Watermann, all releases courtesy of the Alias Frequencies netlabel. Also from Australia, we hear music by Wake Up and Listen and Kazumichi Grime from the 1997 compilation Dislocations (Zonar Recordings).
