The Psychedelic Furs  President Gas   Options Forever Now  Columbia  1982  LP  You have to have a party, when you're in a state like this. You can really move it all. You have to vote and change. You have to get right out of it, like out of all this mess. You'll say yeah to anything, If you believe all this but... don't cry, don't do anything. No lies, back in the government. No tears, party time is here again. President gas is up for president. Line up, put your kisses down. Say yeah, say yes again. Stand up, there's a head count. President gas on everything but roller skates. It's sick...the price of medicine. Stand up, we'll put you on your feet again. Open up your eyes, just to check that you're asleep again. President gas is president gas again. He comes in from the left sometimes. He comes in from the right. It's so heavily advertised that he wants you and I. It's a real cowboy set, electric company. Every day is happy days. It's hell without the sin, but don't cry, don't do anything. No lies, back in the government. No tears, party time is here again. President gas is up for president. Line up, put your kisses down. Say yeah, say yes again. Stand up, there's a head count. President gas on everything but roller skates. It's sick...the price of medicine. Stand up, we'll put you on your feet again. Open up your eyes...just to check that you're asleep again. President gas is president gas again. President gas... Oh, president gas... Whoa, president gas... Oh, president gas... Whoa, president gas... Oh, president gas... Whoa, president gas...    0:00:00 ()

Vladimir Ussachevsky  Metamorphosis   Options Electronic and Acoustic Works, 1957 - 1972  New World Records  2007  CD  "Metamorphosis" was originally composed in 1957 (CRI). A bit of background on Ussachevsky: In 1950, the Columbia University Music Department requisitioned a tape recorder to use in teaching and for recording concerts. In 1951, the first tape recorder arrived, an Ampex 400, and Vladimir Ussachevsky (1911-1990), then a junior faculty member, was assigned a job that no one else wanted: the care of the tape recorder. This job was to have important consequences for Ussachevsky and the medium he developed. Electronic music was born. Over the next 10 years, Ussachevsky and his collaborators established the Columbia-Princeton Electronic Music Center, which Ussachevsky directed for 20 years. The Center became one of the best-known and most prolific sources of electronic music in the world. This composer portrait (originally issued as CRI 813) features six of his pioneering works in the medium, as well as two of his choral works, an aspect of his output that was just as important to him. The final two works on this CD make extensive use of the human voice. The first of these, "Three Scenes from The Creation," is based on texts from Ovid's Metamorphosis and the Akkadian creation epic Enuma Elish, telling the story of the primordial gods and their struggle to create order out of chaos. The recorded choral tracks were edited, assembled, and manipulated "with electronic accompaniment" in the studio. The Prologue was played in concert and also issued on a Columbia recording. The Interlude, originally Interlude and Conflict, dates from the same time and used recorded soprano and bass voices with electronic and concrete sounds and a live mezzo-soprano. In addition to the vocal and electronic sounds, recordings of piano, bell, and Chinese dinner plate sound are used, modified with the studio techniques that the composer had developed over the years. In the early 1970s, Ussachevsky returned to acoustic music after nearly two decades of immersion in the electronic medium. It was natural for him to use choral music as the medium of this return. The composer wrote that "growing up as I did in the Russian Orthodox Church, serving as reader and altar boy, the sound of the choir singing the traditional service and works by all the best nineteenth-century Russian composers left an indelible impression." The Missa Brevis (1972) uses the traditional core texts of the mass-Kyrie, Sanctus, Benedictus, and Agnus Dei - without any particular reference to electronic music.    1:36:19 ()
Sigurd Berge  Erupsjon   Options Early Electronic Works  Prisma Records  2010  CD  This is the first (and posthumous) release of the music of the Norwegian composer and electronic music pioneer, Sigurd Berge. This release showcases some of Berge`s earliest experiments with tape-machines and early synthesizers. The music is taken from 3 reels found in the Henie Onstad Art Centre music archives in 2009. The reason why these tapes were located at the art centre is probably because Berge worked for several years at the NSEM - Norwegian Studio for Electronic Music, located at the art centre. Berge also was a central part of the electronic music concert-series Elektrofoni, which took part at the centre from 1968 until 1983. On the 1st tape was found the unreleased pieces, Preludium, Ritual & Sørgemusikk, as well as the pieces, Erupsjon and Eg beisla min støvel. On a different tape was found the musique concrète piece, Delta, which Berge also used in collaboration with the avant-garde jazz group, Svein Finnerud, in 1970.    1:40:48 ()

I want to unfly every crow, unwind every mile, undo everything I've done... Good days...There'll be bad days. Good days...There'll be bad days. I want to unread every book that my eyes laid on, unsay everything I've said. I want to unsing every song, unwrite every line, unstep every step I've made... Good days...There'll be bad days. Good days...There'll be bad days. I want to unsew every seam, unwind every clock, unbreathe every breath I've made. I want to unset every sun that my eyes fell on till I give back all I've won. Good days...There'll be bad days. Good days...There'll be bad days. Good days...There'll be bad days. Good days...There'll be bad days.    2:56:18 ()
