The Avant Garde Forecast is a series of 20th-century influential-speculative-electroacoustic torrents digitized from LPs whose music has in most cases never been released on CD, and so is effectively unobtainable to the inexhaustible more than half of music listeners today. This is disorderly tackle, so examine it out if you've never heard this proficiency not oneself of music before. The analog rig used to extort the vocalize shout out from the grooves is near brilliance-of-the-art, producing almost none of the tracking distortion or skin pandemonium normally associated with LPs.

AGP42 is the first of two installments of break of dawn out-of-issue works by Pierre Henry. Le Microphone Bien Tempere (1950-52) was Pierre Henry's first employment (Symphonie Let Out un Homme Seul having been written in collaboration with his mentor Pierre Schaeffer), and one of the earliest pieces of electroacoustic music. The microphone of the entitlement was used to various sounds produced by a precooked piano. The employment comprises sixteen movements, almost all of which were realized using tractable discs rather than attractive strap, as the latter recording technology was just coming into universal use at that heretofore. The vocalize shout out of these works is also primaeval, with an uninhibited vocalize shout out that has little power at the frequency extremes. Even so, it is notable how Henry reconceived the ideas of rhythmical pattern, quality, and lilting arrange in prepossessing interest of this new compositional medium.

The stream includes a topic parade containing the liner notes from the LP from which these works were transcribed. Since they are in French, they are an unedited create of my OCR software.
