Daphne Oram, Tom Dissevelt

Electronic Sound Patterns/Electronic Movements

Label: Trunk

Format: Vinyl 10

Out of stock

This 10” record brings together the very two rare and early eps made by these pioneering electronic musicians. Both records have not been in print since 1962. Each musician has one side each, and the artwork brings together the original sleeves (beautifully reproduced), with one side each. There is also an insert with sleevenotes.

On Side One is Daphne Oram’s first complete commercial recording and was released in the UK as part of Vera Gray’s Listen, Move And Dance series. Basically this was music made for school children to throw shapes and improvise along to during drama and creative lessons. It was Vera’s hope that these new and exciting sounds would lead the children into some “imaginative situations”.

Side Two represents and whole different country of electronic creativity, with the exceptional sounds of Dutch electronic pioneer Tom Dissevelt. A multiinstrumentalist and jazzman, Dissevelt was invited to work at the legendary Natlab (Philips Physics Laboratory) studios. There he spent time working alongside composer and theorist Dick Raaijmakers (AKA Kid Baltan) producing new electronic sounds and interpretations of popular music. This four track sampler was issued at the same time as the Oram work and its comprehensive sleevenotes hinted at the music being “attractive”, “dizzy” and “mysterious”. And yes, I sure dig that.
