For the first time on CD, Blue Gene Tyranny s first album from 1977 (originally one of the first Lovely Music releases) is beautifully re-mastered, with new artwork and a 24-page booklet. Blue is a Grammy-nominated composer and pianistwho has performed on records by Robert Ashley (PerfectLives), John Cage, and Laurie Anderson, yet this is quite different. Composing for what is essentially a chamber rock ensemble, a cast of female vocalists, and himself (on
the Polymoog and RMI synthesizers), Blue has created a song-cycle that reflects his intensely melodic and free piano technique in a polished studio record. Out of the Blue elegantly combines adventurous New Music technique, the style and appeal of pop music, and the grace of classical music to form an unclassifiable and totally revelatory whole. Endearing, exciting, familiar yet unlike anything else this is a very friendly record.
