Poem By Orhan Veli Kanik
Animus IElectronic Music III
Turnabout Vox TV 34177
From Billboard October 14, 1967: A fascinating collection of electronic music styles and collaborations. Pianist George Flynn is expert in Mimaroglu's "Piano Music for Performer and Composer." while trombonist Andre Smith's is equally adept in Druckman's "Animus I." Mimaroglu's "Six Preludes for "Magnetic Tape" also is inventive as is Berio's Thema (Omaggio a Joyce)."
Fascinating? Yup. More good stuff from Turnabout featuring a blend of approaches that, at times, seem more traditional, than "electronic". Six Preludes For Magnetic Tape comes off as very much electronic. That collection sounds as if someone deconstructed any song.... and played it in bits and pieces out of order, backwards. The mood created is somewhat dark. Great stereo engineering.
I especially love a the sixth short track found on side 2 posted above (part of the Six Preludes For Magnetic Tape).
