GUNNER MOLLER PEDERSEN-STONED: AN ELECTRONIC SYMPHONY, LP, 1974, DENMARK




A flat out stunning hybrid of advanced electronic capabilities and stoned sensibilities, this exceptionally obscure LP was evidently only sold at the 12 concerts that this Danish electronic composer and student of Cornelius Cardew gave of this material. Make no mistake, that title is an indication that Pedersen means business and this glistening nocturnal sonic mirage is absolutely glazed in in a hyper-real patina of otherness. Over the course of this burbling and gurgling album length composition, Pedersen conjures allusions to everything from Deuter, Mort Garson, Moolah and Don Robertson to Sweden's Johan Hedran, and Polish electronic composer Krzysztof Knittel. Thanks to blog friend Mikkel for providing this unearthed monster!

Far out. Mighty pumped to put this one on. Dude also did a 6 LP musical calender that worth a listen if you've got the time.

Thanks look forward to listening to this. I've been searching for anything after hearing a few scores he did for some bicycle films like stars and watercarriers and a sunday in hell, hope to find the music used in those films someday!
