This is the album I have been waiting for. This new material featuring outtakes and isolated tracks, pulls back the curtains to reveal the master at work. Up there with the IBM computer singing "Daisy", the world's first Artificial Intelligence music generator can be heard under the command of Raymond Scott himself. Hearing what the Electronium really sounded like in action gave me goosebumps.
Three Willow Park: Electronic Music from Inner Space, 1961–71, a new collection of previously unreleased Raymond Scott electronica, will be issued on June 30 by Basta. The album features 61 unreleased tracks, many showcasing Scott's Motown-era Electronium, a device that composed using programmed intelligence. The long-awaited followup to Manhattan Research Inc. will be available in 3-LP, 2-CD, and digital formats. 3WP also features the Circle Machine, the Clavivox, the Bass-Line Generator, Bandito the Bongo Artist; tone, melody, and sound effects generators; sequencers and modulators; tape montages; and acoustic instruments and voices.
The album is now available for order, to be released June 30th from Basta Music at the following page: Amazon.com
