Very much overestimated. Each "album" is more or less a drone-sound. No chords, no melody, nothing but drone noises. It's the easiest "music" to make. No thoughts, no ideas but silly noise-drones. Soulless emptines. There are much better "artists" in this genre.

I like Mr. Bertoia's recordings, but if you've heard one, you've heard 'em all.

Can't find this anywhere. If it exists, count me in for one!

I've heard that all eleven of the Bertoia LPs were available together as a box set. Can anyone here confirm this? If so, it would be great if they could post it as a new submission.
