SIEGERT & CHORUS OF XII, JOERG - BRAIN SOUND - AN ATTEMPT TO RECORD COINCIDENCE (LP)


"Pictured in all its tantalizing, eye-popping glory in Hans Pokora's 1001 Record Collector Dreams, this hellishly-rare Austrian avant garde LP from 1972 is nothing short of astonishing. There are no instruments, but rather varying configurations of solo, duo and ensemble vocal improvisations, presumably informed by the aforementioned (and nearly impenetrable) code. this unique and prescient music will stun even the most astute followers of outsider art. From an avant-classical perspective, one might mention late-'60s Penderecki as a possible reference point (along with Ligeti, or perhaps even Nono). In improvised music, the Spontaneous Music Ensemble's larger workshop groups similarly feature masses of vocal sounds; comparisons with Alan Watts' This Is It are as plausible as they are inevitable. Ultimately, though, nothing will quite prepare you for this LP. Strictly limited edition of 500 copies only. Packaged in high-gloss, tip-on sleeves, and pressed on 180 gram vinyl. " (label info)
