Jordan Belson - 5 Essential Films (DVD)CVM
Jordan Belson's best works are now available on DVD: Allures (1961), with its geometric patterns and optical images reminiscent of Oskar Fissinger (the circular images painted with light are truly beautiful and mysterious); Samadhi (1967), one of his best-known works, which depicts the world of enlightenment through fluid smoky images and light coloration; and Light (1973), which blends natural scenes with light. Samadhi (1967), which depicts a world of enlightenment through fluid smoky images and light coloration, Light (1973), which beautifully blends natural scenes with light, and Fountain of Dreams (1984), which unfolds a universe trapped inside that makes us marvel at how far human creativity and expression can go. Fountain of Dreams (1984)" is an unfolding of a universe trapped inside, and "Epilogue (2005)" is a compilation of his works, which is a fitting end to the album, and shows the same creative ability as 40 years ago.

John Cage - Journeys in Sound (DVD)ACCENTUS MUSIC

A Zen master or an expert on chance? A specialist in mushrooms or a per­formance artist? The inventor of new sounds or a cook? An author or an anarchist? John Cage was all of these things.

On the occasion of his centenary in fall 2012, this documentary by Oscar-winner Allan Miller and Emmy-winner Paul Smaczny pays tribute to the most fascinating American avant-garde composer John Cage. Shot in America, Germany and Japan, the program premieres rare archival footage; presenting concert excerpts and a set of short episodes, featuring associates of Cage and contemporary artists, playfully delineating different aspects of John Cage.

The documentary features interviews with Yoko Ono, David Tudor, Christian Wolff, Steffen Schleiermacher, Irvine Arditti, Toshio Hosokawa, Mayumi Miyata, Calvin Tomkins and many others.

SPECTRES 3 ‘Ghosts In The Machine / Fantômes dans la machine’ (Book)Shelter Press
This time focusing on “Ghosts In The Machine”, or rather - the applications of AI and Machine Learning in the domain of music making, the foreward sets the tone “…the artificial, the artefact, is always the extra-human brainchild of a human, all too human dream.” Inside, Steve Goodman reflects on his “IT” sound installation about the myth of Golem, Bill Orcutt explores repetition and automatism in music, Florian Hecker and Robin Mackay investigate their electroacoustic pieces ‘FAVN' and ‘Inspection (Maida Vale Project)’, Lucy Railton in conversation with Peter Zinovieff (R.I.P.) with a heartbreaking final line, Akira Rabelais’ semi-impenetrable but ultimately rewarding Lyre-mangled auto-fiction and, of course, Roland Kayn on Cybernetic Music. Lots more to explore inside.

Came to Call Mine is an extensive full-color art book by visionary musician, artist, and writer Graham Lambkin. Playing out like a children’s book for adults, Came to Call Mine features 50 hand-drawn illustrations coupled with simplistic corresponding texts. Lambkin’s mischievous combination of figurative and abstract elements lends Came to Call Mine a jarring, dreamlike quality, confusing the eye by placing innocent childlike totems against a darker adult undercurrent.

Came to Call Mine is released as a deluxe softcover book designed by Maja Larsson, with lithograph printing on Munken pure rough, lynx, and polar paper stock in an edition of 400 copies.

Philip Corner - The Art of No-Art (Book+DL)Recital
A new book of scores by artist and composer Philip Corner (b. 1933). The Art of No-Art is a collection of 385 new graphic scores written between 2019 and 2022. Each score is a single-page meditation based around octaves. Though written mostly for piano, the scores could be arranged for other instrumentation (for those with fewer than an 8 octave range). The Art of No-Art explores the endless possibilities of one musical note (and its bounded harmonics). The pieces can be performed by people of any skill level; rudimentary or advanced navigations are possible. A supplemental audio download is included, which features recordings of many scores from the book, played on a variety of instruments by Agnese Toniutti, Rhodri Davies, Sarah Davachi, Derek Baron, Philip Corner, Matt Hannafin, Charlie Morrow, Zachary Paul, and Silvia Tarozzi. Additionally, Philip Corner wrote instructions for Sean McCann to collage all these recordings into a grand piece of No-Art. A numbered art print of the score “Life’s A Joke” is included, a piece for voice which invites the reader to sing (or shout), “LIFE’S A JOKE AND ALL THINGS SHOW IT, I THOUGHT SO ONCE AND NOW I KNOW IT.”

Sun Ra - Extensions Out, Plus: Four Poetry Books (1959/1972) (Book)
Sun Ra - Extensions Out, Plus: Four Poetry Books (1959/1972) (Book)CORBETT VS. DEMPSEY

Limited reprint. Corbett vs. Dempsey announce the release of four books of poetry by Sun Ra. Two of these were pamphlets that accompanied early Sun Ra albums issued in the late 1950s; the other two were published more than a decade later by Infinity Inc./Saturn Research. CvsD's reprints are fastidiously designed facsimiles of the original publications, marking the first time they have been available in their Ra-ordained form since they were published. An architect of Afrofuturism and one of the great musical thinkers of the 20th century, Ra's work extended far beyond jazz and even music to the realms of pageantry, performance, theater, philosophy, visual art, and literature. In the mid-1950s, he handed out leaflets and gave street corner lectures -- revisionist interpretations of the Bible and bold meditations on the status of African Americans in American society. A few years later, Ra began disseminating his poems in -- and sometimes on -- his albums. His debut, Jazz By Sun Ra, was issued in 1957 by the Boston-based Transition label, a short-lived company that sold records by subscription; this record contained a beautiful booklet, now as prized as the LP itself, with rare photographs and a selection of poems and proclamations, as well as the personnel and recording credits. Ra's Jazz In Silhouette was released two years hence on Saturn Records, the label he started with Alton Abraham, and it came with a mimeographed liner booklet -- now exceedingly rare -- that was folded, unstapled, as an ultra-economical accompaniment to the vinyl. The CvsD version folds this slim pamphlet of poetry into a slipcover with a classic photo portrait of Ra by Thomas "Bugs" Hunter on the back. Perhaps Ra's best-known book of poetry, reprinted in many alternative versions with different contents over the years, is The Immeasurable Equation; this incarnation restores the original Infinity Inc./Saturn Research version, published in Chicago in 1972 and distributed widely by the Arkestra, often from the bandstand. It features more than 60 of Ra's poems. Finally, perhaps the rarest of Ra's poetry books is Extensions Out: Immeasurable Equation Vol. II, which was also published by Infinity Inc./Saturn Research. This 8 1/2 x 11 inch book is a massive compendium of more than 130 poems, very much in step with the mimeo poetry publications of its era -- simple staple binding, one-sided pages -- featuring three photographs of artwork by Ayé Aton, a close ally of Ra's in this, the period of the Arkestra classic Space Is The Place, on which Aton plays percussion. Great care was taken to reproduce the special textured cover of this highly sought-after book. These four books are exclusively sold as a set. The first edition is limited to 1000 copies. Corbett vs. Dempsey is proud to represent the non-musical side of the Sun Ra Estate. The label gratefully acknowledges Irwin Chusid and Sun Ra LLC for the permission to release this historically rich chronicle of Ra's poetry, presented as he originally conceived it.

Deben Bhattacharya - Paris to Calcutta: Men and Music on the Desert Road (4CD+BOOK)
Deben Bhattacharya - Paris to Calcutta: Men and Music on the Desert Road (4CD+BOOK)SUBLIME FREQUENCIES

Deben Bhattacharya (1921-2001) was a field recordist, poet, filmmaker, musicologist, and amateur ethnomusicologist, based in Calcutta and Paris. Highly influential, it would not be too bold a stretch to say that his work shaped how we listen to the world: he produced a vast number of LPs, CDs, videos, and radio shows of traditional music from India, Asia, Africa, the Middle East, and Europe from 1953 until his death in 2001. Never before published, Paris to Calcutta: Men and Music on the Desert Road features over four hours of music and is Deben's impressionistic account of a 1955 journey overland, in a converted milk delivery van, from France to India collecting and exploring music along the Desert Road from Europe into India. With four CDs of recordings, photographs, Deben's original recording notes, musical transcriptions, and more. An amazing glimpse into a time long gone and essential listening for anyone interested in folk and world music traditions. Produced and edited by Robert Millis (Indian Talking Machine (2015) and Victrola Favorites (DTD 011CD, 2009). "Actually, I think my playing is probably more derived from the folk music records that I heard; Middle Eastern music, Indian music... for years I had something called Music On The Desert Road, which was an album with all kinds of different ethnic music. I used to listen to that all the time." --Frank Zappa, 1993 (from an interview in Guitarist Magazine, talking about an LP released by Deben in 1956 using a few edited versions of the music included on this compilation.) 160 pages, cloth bound cover with four CDs: 45 pages of photographs and 50 pages of detailed recording notes. Introductions by Jharna Bose Bhattacharya, Robert Millis and WG Archer.

Al Jarnow ‎– Celestial Navigations: The Short Films Of Al Jarnow (DVD)Numero Group

"Tens of millions of people have seen these films. nobody knows who made them. Curled up on our couches in the wee hours of the morning, in reruns, and nostalgic You Tube forwards, filmmaker Al Jarnow has touched our lives and changed the way we look at the world without us ever knowing. Beginning with his work for a certain public television show that featured a big yellow bird, Al Jarnow captured life's scientific minutia and boiled it down for easy consumption between cookie eating monsters and counting vampires. Coupling time-lapse, stop motion, and cell animation with simple objects found in every day life, Jarnow deconstructed the world for an entire generation. From the third floor of his Long Island gingerbread home, his mind wandered beyond the confines of educational programming. Delving into New York's avant-garde film scene alongside Harry Smith, Jonas Mekas and Stan Brakhage, Jarnow created a body of awe-inspiring films that remain in the collections of MOMA and Pompideau Center. Employing the archival skills honed during the excavation of over 40 full-length albums, Celestial Navigations marks The Numero Group's first foray into the world of cinema. The 45 films collected have been transferred and color corrected from the original 16mm prints, along with fully remastered sound. Special features include a 30-minute documentary on Jarnow's creative process, as well as film playlists designed for both children and adults alike. The deluxe package includes a 60-page book loaded to the gills with essays, ephemera, storyboards, photos, and a complete film index, all housed in the iconic Numero slipcase." Region 0; color and B&W; full screen; total running time: 110 minutes. Includes a 60-page full color book.

From 1976 to 1979, Yuzuru Agi was arguably the one who spent the most words about Brian Eno in Japan. In this book, Yuzuru Agi and Eno, as well as the transition of the music scene, are highlighted by extracting and archiving sentences, record reviews, liner notes, etc. about Eno by Agi published in "Rock Magazine" magazine at that time. saw.
The words "obscure" and "ambient", which Eno advocated more than 40 years ago and were introduced through Aki, have already become widespread, and their meanings are expanding and changing. Agi's text is a valuable resource for understanding the historical background and how they were initially conveyed. -Satoru Higashi Seto, some excerpts from this book.
Yukio Fujimoto met Brian Eno as the same participating artist at the exhibition held in Denmark in 1992, and this interview mentions the essence of art through Eno, and the process of Eno's history. I think you can understand.
An interview that contains so many noticeable discourses.

Yuzuru Agi and Brian Eno's theme of Eno's creation, such as a text by Yu Hirayama, an interview with Satoru Higashi Seto, and a record review related to Brian Eno released in 1972-82, covering 40 titles by Shuta Hiraki. An easy-to-understand explanation of the essence.

SPECTRES 2 ‘Résonances / Resonances’ (Book)SPECTRES 2 ‘Résonances / Resonances’ (Book)
SPECTRES 2 ‘Résonances / Resonances’ (Book)Shelter Press

To resonate: re-sonare. To sound again—with the immediate implication of a doubling. Sound and its double: sent back to us, reflected by surfaces, diffracted by edges and corners. Sound amplified, swathed in an acoustics that transforms it. Sound enhanced by its passing through a certain site, a certain milieu. Sound propagated, reaching out into the distance. But to resonate is also to vibrate with sound, in unison, in synchronous oscillation. To marry with its shape, amplifying a common destiny. To join forces with it. And then again, to resonate is to remember, to evoke the past and to bring it back. Or to plunge into the spectrum of sound, to shape it around a certain frequency, to bring out sonic or electric peaks from the becoming of signals.
Resonance embraces a multitude of different meanings. Or rather, remaining always identical, it is actualised in a wide range of different phenomena and circumstances. Such is the multitude of resonances evoked in the pages below: a multitude of occurrences, events, sensations, and feelings that intertwine and welcome one other. Everyone may have their own history, everyone may resonate in their own way, and yet we must all, in order to experience resonance at a given moment, be ready to welcome it. The welcoming of what is other, whether an abstract outside or on the contrary an incarnate otherness ready to resonate in turn, is a condition of resonance. This idea of the welcome is found throughout the texts that follow, opening up the human dimension of resonance, a dimension essential to all creativity and to any exchange, any community of mind. Which means that resonance here is also understood as being, already, an act of paying attention, i.e. a listening, an exchange.
Addressing one or other of the forms that this idea of resonating can take on (extending—evoking—reverberating—revealing—transmitting), each of the contributions brought together in this volume reveals to us a personal aspect, a fragment of the enthralling territory of sonic and musical experimentation, a territory upon which resonance may unfold.
The book has been designed as a prism and as a manual. May it in turn find a unique and profound resonance in each and every reader.

Yoga Vasistha (Book)
Yoga Vasistha (Book)Natural Spirit

"Yoga Vasishta weaves together many stories and commentaries to explain the ultimate teachings. It will be a marvelous discovery not only for philosophers, but even for modern psychologists and scientists. While most of the existing scriptures were preached by God to His devotees, the Yoga Vasishta is a teaching addressed to God. It is a teaching given by the sage Vasishta to Rama, God.
The philosophy of Yoga Vasishta, which provides a true understanding of the creation of the world, is very close to the doctrine of Kashmir Shiva, and the core of its teachings is "All is Consciousness. It includes the material world as you see it, as it is. This is the absolute truth. The world is nothing but the play of consciousness." (From Swami Muktananda's Preface)
