New Sounds In Electronic Music - Steve Reich, Richard Maxfield, Pauline Oliveros

   0 reviews  -  1126 views
    The landmark album featuring the work of three luminaries, Steve Reich, Richard Maxfield, and Pauline Oliveros. The "New Sounds In Electronic Music" would be highly recognized for the piece "Come Out" by Steve Reich that was a model for minimal and phase composition that Reich would go on to develop much further.

    The album also features some of the first electronic works by Richard Maxfield. "Night Music" is an exquisite pre-synthesizer electronic music made like his pieces "Sine Music" (1959) and "Trinity Piece" (1960) with only the supersonic bias signal of a tape recorder and a supersonic sawtooth waveform from an oscilloscope producing audio range difference tone "ghosts".

    Identical in feeling to a response to the sound of birds and insects on a summer night in a city park. "I of IV" is a good example of Oliveros' earlier electronic music using a configuration of tape recorders patched into each other with magnetic tape spliced in loops so that a form of "automatic generation" system was created by feedback. Similar to Richard Maxfield, Oliveros used bias frequencies of tape recorders and difference, or lower "ghost tones" produced by the interference of very high frequencies.
