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.
AGP1-105 are now available for direct download in the archive at www.avantgardeproject.org
AGP106-109 and other recent AGP installments are also available at http://thepiratebay.org/user/loudav
AGP110 is a transcription of an out-of-print CD containing Horatiu Radulescu's Sensual Sky and Iubiri. Both works are for chamber ensembles and sound icon (a piano upended and played directly on the exposed strings). Winds dominate in the scoring, but with a greater variety of timbres than in Inner Time II, making these works somewhat more accessible. Both exemplify Radulescu's approach of, "realization by synthesis of the global sources of sound, living sound plasmas wherein all the micro-parameters possess an infinite number of micro-rhythms."
These are gorgeous works, and a feast for lovers of microtonality. I cannot recommend them highly enough. Once again, this installment is brought to you by the AGP's global network of Radulescu partisans. The torrent includes a PDF file with scans of the CD booklet notes in three languages.

NOTE: To the best of my knowledge, this recording is 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.
