The Avant Garde Project is a series of 20th-century classical-experimental-electroacoustic torrents digitized from LPs whose music has in most cases never been released on CD, and so is effectively inaccessible to the vast majority of music listeners today. This is wild stuff, so check it out if you've never heard this sort of music before. The analog rig used to extract the sound from the grooves is near state-of-the-art, producing almost none of the tracking distortion or surface noise normally associated with LPs.
AGP1-84 are now available for direct download in the archive at www.avantgardeproject.org
AGP85-91 and other recent AGP installments are also available at http://thepiratebay.org/user/loudav
AGP92 is the first of four featuring (mostly) orchestral works by German composers. All of the tracks in AGP92-95 are transcribed from a 30LP collection entitled, Zeitgenossische Musik in der Bundesrepublik Deutschland. A number of tracks from this collection have been included in other AGP installments. These four installments comprise all of the tracks composed between 1959 and 1982 that are out of print and that didn't fit in other installments (generally because I didn't have enough other OOP material by the composer).
There is some great stuff in these four installments that I would have gotten to earlier if they weren't odds and ends. The pressings in this collection are uniformly low-noise and low-distortion. The torrent includes a PDF file with scans of the extensive notes on the composers and compositions contained in the booklets that came with each 3LP set.

NOTE: To the best of my knowledge, these recordings are currently out of print. If you know otherwise, please let me know ASAP, as I do not wish any artists to be deprived of the royalties that they so richly deserve.
