This is the place for special, non-mainstream, non-classifiable stuff.

One of my all time favourites, the Catalan troubadour Pascal Comelade:

:shiver: Raymond Scott - whom most people probably only know from cartoons.

He was also the pioneer of electronic music.



A fascinating career! http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Raymond_Scott

Very nice! Thanks for sharing some lovely music to wake up to.

If you know Steve Reich you may have gotten used to his style but if not you may find this very odd indeed. Personally he is a real favourite. More of his music on Youtube.

:cheers: Great! There's a great CD of his stuff http://www.amazon.com/Reckless-Nights-T ... 378&sr=8-1

It used to be the only CD of his music available but since its release interest soared and a few others have come out - but this one is the penultimate.

Thanks, Rum, for the Steve Reich tip, I like it.

You may like Tin Hat, they were a trio initially, now a quartet:

If you want strange, you need look no further than Conlon Nancarrow. This piece (in common with most of his later work) was written for the "player piano", a mechanically altered piano made to play music automatically by means of rolls of paper with punched holes. Nancarrow spent months hand-punching the holes to create his pieces. This was sequencing before there was such a word!

This is one of his earlier, more accessible attempts.


And here's something a little later.

I speak 9 languages fluently, one of which other people can also speak.
When backed into a corner, I fit perfectly - having a right-angled arse.
