  2. A. T. Gaul* - Sounds Of Insects

    6 En Vente à partir de 30,00 $US

    "Recording Data on Insect Sounds:
    Wherever there is motion, some of the energy of the motion is liable to be transmuted to sound energy. Even though most of the insects are small, their motions can produce sounds. Some of the sounds are of such low amplitude that they remain inaudible to us without amplification; other sounds made by insects may be loud enough to become annoying.

    Wing beat tones, and other of the audible insect sounds were picked up directly by an Astatic 77 dynamic cardioid microphone. The internal sounds of the activity of insect flight muscles were picked up through a special probe affixed to RCA 5734 electro-mechanical transducer tube feeding into a specially built preamp. The most troublesome sounds to record proved to be those of insect footsteps. The specimens either clung to the protective mesh on the microphone , or they scampered or flew away too quickly to obtain a useable recording . Attempts were made with paper and with aluminum foil attached to a wire "needle" in a phono cartridge; further attempts were made with a specially built ribbon microphone, large enough for the insects to walk on the ribbon, but the results were poor.

    The footsteps recorded here were achieved by placing the specimens in a small cardboard box, whose bottom was replaced by a tightly stretched sheet of tissue paper. This was placed with the tissue paper only a fraction of an inch from the dynamic microphone. In effect this provided a double diaphragm of the microphone itself - and the results were not only loud and clear, but they sounded alike each time the same insect was permitted to walk. Many of the sounds included on this record were fed into specially designed preamplifier circuits, and thence to a 20-watt Williamson type amplifier. Output was fed to a VM model 711 tape recorder operating at 7 1/2 IPS, and recorded on Scotch brand 111 A 12 magnetic tape."

    Includes an 8-page insert with notes.

  4. Various / Charles Collingwood - Eleven Presidents Speak: Every President From Cleveland To Eisenhower: Actual Voices From Their Famous Speeches

    3 En Vente à partir de 2,50 $US

    Copyright 1956 by General Electric.

    "Not For Sale - A Columbia Transcription Production"

    This release was not sold, according to the label, and appears to have been a complimentary promotional item used to sell Hotpoint's "Hi-Vi" television range around 1956. Much of the material was sourced, again according to the label, from a Heritage 12" long-playing album entitled "If I'm Elected" (H-1201), although some of the recordings of FDR, Truman, and Eisenhower are credited to Tony Schwartz of Legend Recordings, Inc.

    Charles Collingwood's linking narration provides a background for clips taken from recordings, some on early acetate discs and even wax cylinders, of Presidents going as far back as Grover Cleveland (in his second campaign for the White House of 1891). Cleveland's voice is followed by that of William McKinley, who was President until his assassination in 1901.

    The label appears to have listed the Presidents out of order (see photo for Side A), as it places Taft before Theodore Roosevelt. Roosevelt, who was President from McKinley's assassination until 1908, was succeeded by William Howard Taft, who was President from 1909-1912, after which he became the only American President to also hold the position of Chief Justice of the Supreme Court. The order has been corrected for the track listing.

    The sleeve notes are by author Irving Stone, perhaps best known for his book "The Origin", although he is credited on the sleeve as author of "Men to Match My Mountains", published by Doubleday & Co., New York.

    "MUSIC AND FOLKLORE" is a weekly radio program heard on station KPFA, Berkeley, America's only listener-sponsored F M radio station. The program is devoted primarily to the presentation of exotic music - African, Indian, West Indian, Flamenco, Balinese, etc. Occasionally guests are interviewed on the program. These guests might be foreign students from the cultures of which the music hails; they might be local experimenters in the fields of quasi-ethnic or concrete music; or they might be a mythological "authority" such as Dr. Sholem Stein or the multi-ethnic "Jocko". Most of the materials for this recording were taken from various programs in the "Music and Folklore" series.

  13. Jack Kerouac Featuring Al Cohn And Zoot Sims - Blues And Haikus

    5 En Vente à partir de 119,99 $US

    The art-soaked, kicks-filled life of Jack Kerouac produced three records, and the second one Blues and Haikus found him in the studio with post-bop saxophone mainstays Al Cohn and Zoot Sims. While the record only sporadically attains the heights of its rather lofty ambitions, it remains a fascinating document, for it illuminates Kerouac as an artist of beautiful if problematic vision, vindicates Cohn and Sims as a pair of true pros, and brings great perspective to the mindset and milieu of the ‘50s American hipster.

  15. John Cage / David Tudor - Indeterminacy: New Aspect Of Form In Instrumental And Electronic Music

    12 En Vente à partir de 25,00 $US

    Includes booklet.

    Late in September in 1958 I was in Stockholm in a hotel. I set about writing the present lecture which I was obliged to give a week later at the Brussels Fair. I recalled a remark made years before by David Tudor that I should make a talk that was nothing but stories. The idea was appealing when he gave it to me but I had never acted on it. A few weeks before, in Darmstadt, Karlheinz Stockhausen had said, "I'll publish your Brussels talk in Die Reihe." I replied, "You'd better wait and see what it is I write." He said, "No matter what it is, I'll publish it." My intention in putting 90 stories together in an unplanned way is to suggest that all things, sounds, stories (and, by extension, beings) are related, and that this complexity is more evident when it is not over-simplified by an idea of relationship in one person's mind. Most of the stories are things that happened that stuck in my mind. Others I read in books and remembered, those for instance, from Kwang-Tse and Sri Ramakrishna. The 2nd, 15th, 16th, 46th, and 75th stories are to be found somewhere in the literature surrounding Zen. David Tudor: piano, whistles, tape machines, and amplified slinky.

    David Tudor plays material from his part of the Concert for Piano and Orchestra (1957-58), using tracks from the Fontana Mix (1958-59) as noise elements where these arae notated in Concert

    There are 2 different sets here. One has Blue/Silver record labels and the "INDETERMINACY' on the box front is Red. The other has Red/Black record labels and the word "INDETERMINACY" on the box lid is Grey. (cortical)
