"A reissue of Tyndall's second album Traumland, originally released in 1981 on Sky Records. The electronic sonic inventors Tyndall pulled out all the stops for their second album. Armed with an impressive array of analog synthesizers, they unleashed the full force of their experimentalist ambitions, weaving synth pop, repetitive bass patterns, laminar sounds, and carefree melodies into a unique amalgam of the Düsseldorf and Berlin Schools. Traumland was released a year after their debut effort...

“In 1986 master trumpeter Freddie Hubbard was on stage at the "Fabrik" as a guest performer joining the trio of one of the leading pianists of contemporary jazz: McCoy Tyner, whose extremely powerful touch always added a highly energized percussive quality to his virtuous performance. McCoy Tyner passed away in March 2020. The recordings from 1986 (he was 58 back then) show him at...

“Tyrannosaurus Rex, live from the Progressive Rock Festival, Sporthalle, Köln, Germany on April 4th, 1970. Marc Bolan replaced Steve Took with Mickey Finn in late October 1969, and the revised duo recorded A Beard Of Stars, which was released in March 1970. A few days later, they traveled to Germany to play at Cologne's Progressive Pop Festival....

"Blue" Gene Tyranny's debut album Out of the Blue - newly remastered with original cover art - which was among the first to releases on Lovely Music in 1978 alongside Robert Ashley Private Parts, David Behrman On the Other Ocean, Jon Hassell Vernal Equinox, Meredith Monk Key, and Peter Gordon Star Jaws.
Disarmingly direct, funky, and profound, Out of the Blue is an equanimous, wide-open exploration of Tyranny's musical world: equal parts song cycle, tone poem, keyboard fantasia, and avant-garde pop...

“Trust in Rock documents the last evening of an epic concert series held at Berkeley's University Art Museum in November 1976, featuring an all-star ensemble of the Bay Area's most unclassifiable musicians performing works by "Blue" Gene Tyranny and Peter Gordon. This band, and this concert, played at the nexus of New Music, jam bands, "pattern music," and punk.
Tyranny had quit Iggy Pop's band in 1973; Gordon had already moved to New York and began playing with Arthur Russell and Rhys Chatham....

“Recorded between 1963-2019, Degrees Of Freedom Found is a six CD set "Blue" Gene Tyranny hand selected from archival, live recordings, and brand new first recordings before his passing in 2020.
Part new album, part retrospective, this box offers a fresh perspective on "Blue" Gene Tyranny's musical legacy. Blue's career defining moment, composing the music for Robert Ashley's magnum opus, Perfect Lives, typifies the Buddha-like self-effacement of his musical life.
Often lending a substantial...

"Detours is 'Blue' Gene Tyranny's first album of new piano works since 2003's Take Your Time. A beautifully recorded collection of tracks composed between 2004 and 2010, Detours belongs to a rarefied class of supremely listenable and beautiful piano...
