New Sound Element Stones - Emil Richards

   0 reviews  -  633 views
    Emil Richards' mid-1967 LP "New Sound Element: Stones' is a revelation, an absurd psychedelic proto-popcorn-pop delirium delivered on clavinet. mallets and moog. Plasticized percussions compete with ring-modulated vibes over elastic bass and sci-fi synthesis in this edifying and thoroughly unique amalgam

    Legendary percussionist Emil Richards has written twelve original compositions describing the twelve birthstones accompanied by the Moog Modular synthesizer and more, Some of the The instruments used were on this record include Dr. Irv Wilson's 22-tone-to-the-octave percussion instruments.

    Percussionist extraordinaire (and member of the infamous "Wrecking Crew') Emil Richards was at the crucible of 60s pop and film music playing on everything from the Beach Boys' Gccd Vibrations' to Jerry Goldsmith's -Planet Of The Apes'. Less known, but utterly essential, are Emil's own mid-late 1960s recordings of technicolor-jazz/early-electronics.
