New England Electric Music Company

New England Electric Music Company

Profile:
CD-R sub-label, named after the original New England Electric Music Company from the early XX century, which funded Thaddeus Cahill's ambitious plan to transmit music, produced on his Telharmonium, to hotels, restaurants, theatres and private homes via the telephone network. This visionary project (preceding the concept of online music streaming for generations) failed due to high costs and potential interference with telephone calls on the same line. The description on the website mixes reality with fiction, describing Thaddeus as our contemporary and Whitman' "good friend":

"The New England Electric Music Company was set up by our good friend Thaddeus Cahill to make rare, obscure, and unreleased historic electronic music available to individuals on a local basis. All NEEMC releases are lovingly researched and sourced by Thaddeus throughout the world, mastered in the Math Lab by Hrvatski, designed by Pieter Christophssen and manufactured in small runs in the Reckankomplex replication bureau by the Reckankreuzungsklankewerkzeuge staff. They are sold to local music stores on a not-for-profit basis".

Another Keith Fullerton Whitmann / Hrvatski scam, like the creel pone stuff? Who knows (he sure does ;). Anyways, these are indeed more than unofficial and feature some really low fi sound quality, not suited for this kind of music. That being said, it can still serve as documentation, until the movies are reissued. Nice try though ;)
