TOD DOCKSTADER

EIGHT ELECTRONIC PIECES

ETATS UNIS


Format: LP
Cata No: ETAT02
Barcode: 855985006727
Originally self-released in 1961 and later issued by Folkways,
Tod Dockstader’s Eight Electronic Pieces is a foundational
document of American electronic music and a
stunning first work from this revolutionary composer.
Refused access to the resources and funding of the
academy and without any interest from the record industry,
Dockstader assembled his debut album through three
years of his own private labor – recording after-hours at
the New York radio station where he worked. Dockstader’s
approach was informed by the laboratory experiments of his
European contemporaries Edgar Varèse and Pierre Schaefer
as well as by the aleatory compositional techniques and
neo-dadaist aesthetics of John Cage.
While Dockstader famously described his music as
“organized sound,” Eight Electronic Pieces is not pure
musique concrète. Oscillators pulse and clash with
fragments of incidental tape music, leaving collages of
sound as tuneful and memorable as they are otherworldly.
A visionary debut that presages the abstract ambience of
modern IDM and an essential addition to any collection of
early electronic music.
Limited edition of 500 numbered copies on clear vinyl.
