5.0 out of 5 stars A great obscure collection in high quality packaging, 22 Dec 2000

This review is from: OHM - The Early Gurus of Electronic Music (Audio CD)
This is a brilliant collection of the history of electronic music. It consentrates on the avant garde and the scientific - lots of the compositions are demonstrations of techniques and eqiupment which revolutionised music as we know it today. Such important advances as magnetic tape are explored in musique concrete pieces by John Cage and Edgar Varese (w/ the compelling Poem Electronic), or Clara Rockmore demonstrating the Theremin and displaying amazing virtuosity on such a difficult instrument to accurately play - even has Pauline Oliveros creatively using a record and a turntable in the 1965 piece 'bye bye butterfly'. Everything about this package is brilliant - the music; the stories, history and theory behind the music and the cool looking case with funky circuitboard pictures, and highly detailed linear notes about and by the composers. This boxset is a great way to gain an incite into a musical field that can be baffling, avant garde electronic art music - you may at first see it as strange people making weird noises, but its way deeper than that - if your looking for some of the most multilayed (in every sense of the word) music you can find then this is it - or if your just looking for really odd trippy shit to get high to then this may be it - but don't listen to 'pendulum music' too loudly or for too long. Oh, and check out Insane Clown Posse.
