Electroacoustic Music

Electroacoustic, tape music, musique concrete, turntable music, sound collage, soundscapes and sound art, styles which have been largely unacknowledged on this website.
1Luc Ferrari
Presque rien

A classic of musique concrete field recordings: available on the highly recommended box set L'oeuvre electronique.
2Henri Pousseur
Paysages planétaires

Musique concrete of sounds recorded from various regions across the world. It is like going to Epcot. Lionel Marchetti does this but on a smaller scale.
3Jocelyn Robert
Canned Gods
4Jean Routhier
5 Pierre Schaeffer
L'oeuvre musicale

Pioneer of musique concrete.
6Kent Tankred
Ordinary Things
7 Lionel Marchetti
Knud un nom de serpent (Le cercle des entrailles)
8Herbert Distel
La Stazione

Musique concrete collage of recordings at train stations. Highly recommended.
9Jed Speare
Sound Works 1982-1987

Highly recommended; Jed Speare creates dark, droning, poignant environments of sound that become more beautiful the more you revisit it.
10Eugeniusz Rudnik
Studio Eksperymentalne Polskiego Radia
11Robert Ashley
String Quartet Describing the Motions of Large...
12Christophe Charles
Undirected 1986-1996

15Samuel Sighicelli
Marée noire
16Arsene Souffriau
Experiences Bimes

Highly recommended electronic tape pieces.
17Boguslaw Schaeffer

Modern classical, tape music, elements of free improvisation, electronic, electroacoustic, etc.
18Chion / Marchetti / Noetinger

20Christian Zanesi

Plays PRES
22 Martin Tetreault
La nuit où j'ai dit non

Turntable improvisation: an electroacoustic wasteland unlike anything on our planet. Highly recommended.
23Jacques Brodier
Filtre de realite

OK, I lied about La nuit ou j'ai dit non being unlike anything, maybe this album is similar (but less concrete and more electronic/drone).
24Dick Raaijmakers
The Complete Tape Music of Dick Raaijmakers
25Jan Boerman
The Complete Tape Music of Jan Boerman
26Curtis Roads
Point Line Cloud

A While and Awhile
37DJ Lenar

DJ Lenar remixes Polish Radio Experimental Studio music into mesmerizing new patterns.
38Baudouin Oosterlynck

There are some electroacoustic tape pieces, but the bulk of this album uses voice, prepared piano, clanging objects,... Unique modern classical with the repetition of minimalism (post-minimalism?).
39Ischio Romantico
From the Hip

Turntable music meets Japanoise.
41Annette Krebs and Taku Unami

Unclassifiable ("post-EAI"?) Truly a new enigmatic language of sound art.
42Cool Quartet
Dancing in Tomelilla

Recordings of a vocal jazz concert...of the experience of a concert, and walking in and out of the room, backstage, etc.
43Michael Pisaro and Toshiya Tsunoda
44Seth Nehil and Olivia Block
Sunder, Unite
45Arsenije Jovanovic
Galiola: Works for Radio, 1967-2000

The first half of the album is magnificent sound art more comparable to theater or cinema than music. Only the second half of the album is electroacoustic/musique concrete (for more of this style, see Arsenije Jovanovic's self-titled album).
46Akio Suzuki
K7 Box
47Per Svensson
El / Element 1

A dark chasm of environmental sound.
48Various Artists
Improvised Music From Japan

Giant box set of all sorts of experimental music, including some of the earliest released EAI and onkyo.

Small Sounds
60Michael Pisaro
Hearing Metal 1
61Matt Rogalsky
Memory Like Water
62Taku Unami and Takahiro Kawaguchi
Teatro Assente

Unclassifiable "post-EAI"; the theme is of an empty theater, although there are footsteps, moving objects, and other suspenseful oddities...
63Mauricio Kagel
Playback Play
64Graham Lambkin and Jason Lescalleet
The Breadwinner

Simple yet expansive soundscapes of interior (home) environment. I also recommend their album Air Supply.
65Christian Marclay
Records (1981-1989)

Turntable music
66Bonnie Jones
67Sunshine Has Blown
Sunshine Has Blown

Highly recommended. Very little information: is it improvised or actually composed? Live performances of five players exploring a new and beautiful territory of dreamlike sound somewhere between sound art, free improv, electroacoustic, free folk and psychedelic rock.
68James Rushford and Joe Talia
69Sylvia Hallett
White Fog
70Jean-Claude Eloy

74Phil Durrant, Thomas Lehn and Radu Malfatti
75Max Eastley

77Gordon Ashworth
Public Loops Volume One
Attimo in un Wormhole
79Olivia Block
Heave To

This is turntable improvisation done without any vinyl records. You will hear the needles scratching all sorts of objects. Truly remarkable.

Play Mauricio Kagel: Ludwig van

Thrilling EAI: rhythmic pounding noises of what sounds like Sangtae breaking a hard drive.
