surrounding atmosphere of vinyl entry. Well researched, well written new book out on guitars, amplifiers, inventors, musicians and history.

Not everyday listening, but I liked his tape/electronics based Legende de Eere and Electro-Acoustic Music albums so i took a chance on this 1969 avante-classical pressing I just found in the "new arrivals" bins today.
Stuff I've gleaned reading about it thus far: Avante Garde that bypassed the twelve tone approach of its time in favor of Xenakis' "mathematical application of suspense and release"
"three-part, microtonal melodic texture" "88 piece orchestra interspersed amongst the audience" etc.. Sounds kind of like an instrumental rendition/approach to his layered noise found sound experimental stuff, and maybe where THX got the idea for that big swooping sound it uses to introduce itself in theatres.
