Classic 1975 ambient work; Eno's first 'purely' ambient work and certainly one of his best, and possibly also one of his most influencial. [EG]

One of a number of classic albums that pianist/composer Harold Budd made with the collaboration of Brian Eno on the EG label. This has Budd's beautiful, watery piano sound with various treatments and atmospherics. Icily lovely.

A nice ambient soundtrack to footage of the Apollo missions; Eno's ambient music is extremely well suited to the otherworldly images. [EG]

"New York City's long-reigning experimental electronics collective Excepter went through a period of great transition following their massive 2010 double album Presidence. Member Clare Amory died of cancer in 2011 and other members of the band relocated shortly afterwards. Familiar, the first work from the band after regrouping, finds the collective still incredibly strange, but moving their free-form electronics and Kraut/early-industrial-inspired sound closer to the realm of pop music.

Projekt opens the archives to bring back two formative ambient works. Originally released in 1989 and 1986 respectively, The Wolf At The Ruins and Migration have been out of print for over 20 years. They’re from the period when Fang began his own fusion of electronics and traditional non-Western instruments into a..

"In the early 1980s, the French musical duo Fondation, comprising Ivan Coaquette and Anannka Raghel, released three tapes of fantastic electronic music which owed much to the experimentalism of the seventies.

Strangely enough, this new ambient / electronic album (and even more so, The Evening Falls, the previous one by KJG) reminds me, more than anyone else I've heard, of the electronic music of Piero Milesi!

"A piece of intricate scales and moods, by turn streaming with the quiet flow of a small meandering rill, then suddenly veering off into an oceanic kind of tumult, In The Fields Of Nothing was conceived as a proper film soundtrack with its rhythmic ebb-and-flow and deep sense of immersion...

Strangely enough, this ambient / electronic album reminds me, more than anyone else I've heard, of the electronic music of Piero Milesi!

"On The Evening Falls, he deviates from his more beat-infused work and explores vast aural landscapes with an intricately woven tapestry of swelling string drones, shimmering pedal steel, and minimalist piano motives. The first strictly ambient solo offering from this incredibly versatile composer and musician reveals a delicate sense for rich, ruminant...

"Five years in the making, Jeff Greinke's newest release BEFORE SUNRISE explores the more acoustical side of the ambient / impressionist territory of the electronic music genre. This new work, the third Greinke title on the Spotted Peccary Music label, is a logical progression from his previous releases, painting abstract landscapes and emotive expressions with ample use of acoustic instruments such as piano, cello, viola, clarinets and vibraphone, along with electronic elements of sampled textures and...

Georges Grunblatt was an early member of Heldon, appearing on Allez Teia.
This rarity, which came out on French Polydor in 1980 and which has never-before been reissued in any format, is his only solo work, and is very much in the Heldon vein musically (in a kind of post-Allez Teia trippy vein) with lots of Heldon tie-ins. This appears to be a legit reissue as best as I can tell. Recorded at Ramses Studio in 1977, the engineers were Jean-Louis Rizet and Richard Pinhas.
And look at the credits.

Allez Teia, originally released in 1975, was Heldon's second album. It is rightly considered an early, trance-inducing, electronic masterpiece. It is the only album in the Heldon cannon to feature acoustic guitar. Overall, I'd say that...

A beautiful, fully licensed, gatefold lp replica of the original. It sez here: "Heldon's startling second album. Sounds like Cluser or Harmonia combined with Gastr del Sol."...

"A reissue of Heldon's second album Allez-Teia, originally released on Disjuncta in 1975. Before making his own music in the early '70s, Richard Pinhas was a King Crimson fan. The British group has buzzed in Pinhas's mind for decades, but their greatest impact came early. When he first saw them play, Pinhas was struck by music played during intermission. "When I saw (King Crimson guitarist) Robert Fripp and Brian Eno perform in Paris later, I realized that the intermission music was their work," Pinhas...

"A reissue of Heldon's debut album Electronique Guerilla, originally released on Disjuncta in 1974. In 1973, 22-year old Richard Pinhas was well on his way to becoming a full-time philosopher. He had almost finished his PhD and begun teaching at the University of Paris. But he also had a hobby: writing music and recording it himself. When he submitted a few tracks to British label E.G. (home of King Crimson and Roxy Music), the imprint was interested, but Pinhas was frustrated to find out he'd have to...

High quality mastering from Richard Pinhas's original masters; Licensed from Richard Pinhas. Obi strip; matte printing. Swamp green vinyl; Edition of 700.

"A reissue of Heldon's Heldon . 6 . Interface, originally released in 1977. The idea in the mind of Richard Pinhas, the driving force behind Heldon, was to produce music "as cold as a huge block of ice" a vertiginous experience, of course influenced by the King Crimson trilogy, from Larks' Tongues In Aspic (1973) to Red (1974), except that...

This is a legit, reasonably good sounding, live bootleg recording, sanctioned by Richard & released for Record Store Day. Three of the tracks were never officially recorded by Heldon in the studio. The sound is meh. The music is terrific!

"A reissue of Heldon's Stand By, originally released in 1979. Richard Pinhas began by absorbing Jimi Hendrix as an adolescent, leaving that behind at the beginning of the 1970s, after having heard what Miles Davis and Herbie Hancock were doing with synthesizers, and then discovering the seminal duo Fripp and Eno. It was one year on from this...

Hillage's sixth album caught a lot of people by surprise after all his work as a guitar-star, but in hindsight it fits right into his post-guitar musical world, where he found much fame in the early techno/electronica world. A very nice, low-key album...

"In the mid-1970s, Parisian composer and multi-instrumentalist Thierry M�ller began operating primarily under the Ilitch moniker. Juxtaposing dark, electronic soundscapes and solo guitar improvisations, Ilitch created some of the most enduring music of the era. It comes as no surprise that Nurse With Wound included M�ller on their famed list of influential avant-garde artists.

Originally released on Oxygene Records in 1978, Ilitch's debut Periodikmindtrouble was a shot across the bow for the...

Suitably eerie music for synths, drones and electric guitars. I love this sort of modern day equivalent of Cluster II.

"This is the first-ever release of not ONE but TWO classic Basil Kirchin soundtracks, one from 1965, the other 1971. It's music for strippers, wife-swapping, death, birth, crime and chicken factories. Basil Kirchin is a legendary jazz drummer and...

This was the second volume (hence 3 & 4) of Kirchin's Worlds Within Worlds, which reached a large audience due to its release on Island to a 'rock based / progressive' audience for his tape based works.
It has never-before been reissued in any form legitimately; hugely recommended for fans of electronic / tape music!

"Laraaji's glistening 1980 debut Ambient 3: Day of Radiance has from the beginning been considered an outlier. Though widely celebrated at that the time of its original release (as the third installment in Brian Eno's emerging ambient music series), the album also brought with it an aura of mystification. Where did it fit in? An uncharted synthesis of resonating zither textures, interlocking hammered rhythms, and 3-D sound treatments (courtesy of Eno), Day of Radiance seemed to push open many doors at...
