Artist: FLYNT, HENRY
Title: Glissando No. 1
Format: CD
Label: Recorded
Country: USA
Price: $21.00
"A trance-tape piece, constituting one of three known examples of the Illuminatory Sound Environment genre (the other two being Catherine Christer Hennixs The Electric Harpsichord (Die Schachtel 2010) and HENRY FLYNTs upcoming Celestial Power (Quadraphonic Version)). JOHN BERDNTs enthralling liner notes explain ISE as "an unfurling sound field of overwhelming but far from gratuitous sensuality, a highly tuned texture where all of the aspects are coordinated to make a deeply unusual whole, a new kind of perceptual gestalt.... The piece has a disorienting flow that does something strange to time. Its internal structural logic is fascinating but lacks the distraction of an obvious narrative drama-an eternal sound, implying a potentially endless process.... Glissando No. 1 is perhaps the darkest and most feverish expression of the genre, its massed strings and continual timbral transformations covering both a broad audio spectrum and saturating all points in the stereo field with a hallucinogenic and emotive canopy." Companion track "Stereo Piano" from 1978, performed by CATHERINE CHRISTER HENNIX, is also included (her "billowing cloud" piano technique applied to a scale of Flynts, subsequently layered by Flynt himself). With sixteen-page booklet." -Recorded.

Artist: FLYNT, HENRY
Title: New American Ethnic Music Volume 4: Ascent to the Sun
Format: CD
Label: Recorded
Country: USA
Price: $16.50
"The final release in the New American Ethnic Music series (but not the last Henry Flynt on Recorded) is Ascent to the Sun, a brilliant, sparkling hillbilly raga in the family of You Are My Everlovin but with a unique double violin approach and a mind-bending structure all its own. The piece covers incredible ground in terms of specificity of mood and sentiment, and is deeply listenable and experimental at once. It is a new creation by Flynt circa 2004, engineered by Tim Barnes." - Recorded
