The View from the Edge - Edgard Varese

The View from the Edge
Released 18/05/09. The View from the Edge is about the rolke of percussion in modern music and is a sequel to el's previous Varese edition, The Complete Works of Edgard Varese Volume 1 (ACMEM125CD). An important restoration of the composer's earliest recordings, the edition was greeted by great critical enthusiasm and sold especially healthily on export.

Varese also has a strong base in America, mostly by virtue of the association with Frank Zappa, who for years championed the work of this genius who today is regarded now as "The Father Of Electronic Music”; a man that has been described as the Leonardo da Vinci of modern music

‘Arcana’ and ‘Ionisation’ are the composer's key works; two of the most important of the twentieth century. Leonard Bernstein's historic seventeen minute Arcana with The New York Philharmonic is amongst the rarest Varese recordings The American Percussion Society's vigorous recording of ‘Ionisation’ has been inexplicably out of print for five decades

The Oliver Messiaen pieces are his first official recordings ever, dating from 1946 & 1947, and orginally released on 78 by Pathe. Both are beautifully performed by a young Yvonne Loriod.

Vibing Up The Senile Man
UNFORTUNATELY THIS TITLE IS CURRENTLY OUT OF STOCK. Cherry Red Records apologises for the unavailability of this album, however if you would like to be notified when it is on sale again then please email matti@cherryred.co.uk. Thanks.

Alternative TV enjoy a prestigious reputation on the Punk scene. Fronted by Mark Perry, the editor of the Punk fanzine, 'Sniffin' Glue' (that also included contributions from Danny Baker), ATV captured the imagination of both, bands and fans alike. This album combines together ATV's third LP from 1978, "Vibing Up The Senile Man", with their cuts from the split LP with Here & Now, "What You See...". All tracks were originally released on the Legendary Deptford City Records label and will be appearing on CD for the first time. Being no strangers to Anagram Records ATV have already featured on Anagram's, Punk Collectors' series with "The Image Has Cracked" (CDPUNK 24). The band has recently reformed and will be playing all the major British and European Punk Festivals through the year. Also later this year Mark Perry will have his book published by Virgin Publishing, documenting his time as editor of 'Sniffin' Glue'.

Little Red Songbook
Momus is one of Cherry Red's most popular artists and this album released at the end of 1998 shows just why he is considered one of the UK's most original independent songwriters.

Folktronic
What if computers finally began getting more Africa in them? What if folk artists started emerging who sounded more post-modern than Cornelius or Pole? What would Click Folk or Glitch Folk sound like? What would Alan Lomax have said if, in 1965, the Newport Folk Festival had been invaded by boffins and geeks playing modular Moogs? What if you could hear, today, the Country Music of the year 2049? What about the Japanese country music of 2049? What would that sound like? What if electronics had appeared in 18th Century Scotland just at the moment of the Highland Clearances? How many mountains can you fit on a Minidisc? It's what Raymond Scott, Bruce Haack or Gary Numan might have sounded like if they'd jammed their way through the back catalogue of Steeleye Span. It's Shakespeare rendered in Flash 5 by a superlucid hyperactive Japanese geek. It's those prolific medieval songwriters Trad. and Anon. finding the missing link between unicorns and Unix. It's preposterous, provocative and prescient

Peace in the Heart of the City
This is a great title and describes accurately the contents of the album. It is very relaxing, peaceful, heartful, instrumental piano music. Morgan Fisher has had a fascinating career. Was originally the keyboard player in Love Affair who had a No 1 hit with "Everlasting Love" when he was 16 years old. Went on to join Mott The Hoople who had several top ten hits in the early to mid 70's. In 1978 he was one of the first musicians to form his own label, Pipe Music, recording the groundbreaking "Miniatures" album. In 1981 he played keyboards with Queen on their world tour. Since 1985 he has lived in Tokyo and has been very successful there writing music for TV commercials and film soundtracks. During this time he has recorded 12 albums and has built up a strong following in that country. This CD can be racked in both "New Age" sections and under his name "Morgan Fisher" as a known artist.

Complete Works
One of the founding fathers of modern music Edgard Varese, was fifty years ago experimenting with sound collage and sampling that are commonplace in today¹s popular music. Amongst the composers who claimed him to be an influence were Harrison Birtwistle, Pierre Boulez, John Cage, Morton Feldman, Luigi Nono, Karlheinz Stockhausen and a teenage Frank Zappa with his profound effect on the latter so much so that it can be heard throughout Zappa's work from the Mothers Of Invention onwards. "The Complete Works Volume 1" is the exact same record that turned Frank Zappa on! The recordings are savage and beautiful and far ahead of their time; they have never previously been released on compact disc. Our Price: £9.95
