|Otto Luening & Vladimir Ussachevsky Tape Recorder Music’ Limited Vinyl LP
· One of the very earliest and most important examples of electronic tape music to be pressed on to vinyl (alongside the Radiodiffusion-Télévision Française musique concrète compilations in France and Jim Fassett’s comedic ‘Strange To Your Ears novelty’ record) this privately pressed 1955 LP was released on a one-off label owned by businessman Gene Bruck to document a custom made performance at the New York Museum Of Modern Art back in 1952.
· This facsimile edition of this important LP archives remastered versions of the first recorded unison of Otto Luening and Vladimir Ussachevsky, and a partnership that founded the Columbia-Princeton Electronic Music Center at
Columbia University in 1959, which would later count Ilhan Mimaroglu, Wendy Carlos, Dariush Dolat Shahi and Alice Shields as its graduates.
· Also included on this edition is an expansion of the rare 10” original artwork by legendary graphic designer Ronald Clyne, an early example of his work made before he became in-house designer for Folkways Records, rivalling the likes of Blue Note’s Reid Miles for some of America’s most iconic record sleeves.
