Sub Rosa presents the fourth volume of the highly-acclaimed and successful Anthology of Noise & Electronic Music series. This installment promises to be the pivoting axis in the seven volume set, with 75% rare tracks and music never before heard. In the previous three anthologies, Sub Rosa outlined the historical sites at the advent of concrete and electronic music: Pierre Schaeffer's workshop studio (Vol. 1), the Princeton Electronic Music Center in Columbia, New York (Vol. 2), and the WDR Studio in Cologne (Vol. 3). After the pioneering work of these formative studios, their was a quick worldwide development of similar-intent facilities, popping up throughout Europe and America, but also in Brazil, Mexico and Japan -- countries where there was a will to create music that was radically new. This compilation features a classic cadre of artists from all over the globe, who are true cultural instigators in the field of electronic sound experimentation. Including new creations from China, Brazil, Norway and Hungary, as well as some classic and unpublished material from legendary composers such as Ligeti and Lucier and very rare documents from Robert Wyatt and François Bayle. Like the previous three volumes, this fourth installment is an absolute must for anyone interested in the roots and history of electronic music. The 2CD comes in a deluxe digipack with an informative 40-page booklet. Featuring: Steve Reich, Gyorgy Ligeti, William Burroughs, Alvin Lucier, Olivier Messiaen, Vibracathedral Orchestra, François Bayle, Robert Wyatt, Kevin Ayers, James Whitehead, Loop Orchestra, Halim el-Balh, Jean-Claude Risset, Beatriz Ferreyra, Maja Ratkje, Laurie Spiegel 6, Stephen Vitiello, Erik M, Wang Changcun, Chlorgeschlecht, Gottfried Michael Koenig, Milan Knizak, Rallizes Denudes, Andy Hawkins, John Watermann and Jean-Marc Vivenza.
