Tensions At The Vanguard: New Music From Peru (1948-1979) [coll] – [Pogus Productions]

Cousin Mary   1/16/2013   CD, International

If you don’t think of Peru as a source of avant garde composing from 1948 to 1979, this album will make you think again. Lots of variety from full orchestras (least interesting in my view) to strings and pianos and lots of experimental electronic magnetic tape pieces. Electronic pieces are icy and chirpy with occasional explosions. Spoken word, which is mentioned in the liner notes, is inaudibile, whispered, or distorted. As out there as it gets!
