Tod Dockstader, 1932-2015

E-mail Print PDF

Not only was Tod Dockstader an important pioneer in the field of electronic music and tape manipulation, but he was also a neighbor and friend, living his last years in the Brainwashed hometown of Arlington, Massachusetts. Dockstader is arguably most famous for his 1960 composition Eight Electronic Pieces, used in the 1969 film Satyricon by Fellini, and most unknowingly famous for the sound effects he created for cartoons such as Tom & Jerry and Mr. Magoo. Other notable compositions included Quatermass from 1964 and Drone from 1962. Dockstader was productive through the early part of this century with the Aerial trilogy surfacing on Sub Rosa between 2004 and 2006.

Granite Mask, "Her Venomous Hiss"

E-mail Print PDF

cover imageWith only a handful of releases available, Granite Mask is quite an enigma.  Little information about the project can be found online, and the artwork on their output is abstract to stay the least.  The lack of information is fitting their murky, abstract sound, which does a brilliant job of mixing conventional electronic rhythms with dissonant, abstract blasts of noise.

THU20, "Vroeg Werk"

E-mail Print PDF

cover imageInitially founded as a side project of Club Rialto, with the line-up expanded over time to include the likes of Roel Meelkop and Frans de Waard (so a veritable who’s-who of Dutch experimental music), THU20 has been sporadically active since their formation almost 30 years ago.  This set collects compilation pieces and unreleased live performances largely from the 1980s and early 1990s, and acts as an excellent overview of this period, while still managing to compliment their studio albums.
