Title: Symphony of the Birds
Format: CD
Label: EM
Country: Japan
Price: $21.00
"2013 repress, originally released in 2006. Symphony of the Birds is a CD reissue of the historical 1950s LP, featuring a three-track multi-speed tape collage, "Symphony," made by ONLY natures birdsongs (its REAL), plus regular-speed and time-stretched field recordings, and explanations from the man himself. Jim Fassett was the musical director of CBS radio in the 50s-60s, and also famous as the author of another concrete work, Strange to Your Ears in the 50s. The kinda roots of recent field recordings/drones stuff. Total birdsong mania! Huge booklet of photos and (mostly Japanese-only) texts -- so big that EM actually uses a slightly larger-than-normal jewel case to make it fit!" -EM.
