Artist: LAUTEN, ELODIE
Title: The Death of Don Juan: An Opera In Two Acts
Format: CD
Label: Unseen Worlds
Country: USA
Price: $14.00
"CD debut of this 1985 post-minimal landmark by Elodie Lauten. Lauten has been active in the downtown New York classical and punk scenes since moving from France in the 1970s. The Death of Don Juan is a breakthrough for its lyrical minimalism in combination with drama that actively engages a contemporary emotional experience. Originally self-produced and released as a small LP edition on her own label, it has been touted ever since by Kyle Gann, who adds notes to this edition, and was recently included on one of Alan Lichts Minimal Top Ten lists. Features performances by Arthur Russell and Peter Zummo." - Unseen Worlds

Artist: LAUTEN, ELODIE
Title: Transform EP
Format: 12"
Label: Wilde Calm
Country: USA
Price: $14.00
“Wilde Calm Records is honored to present new work from the late Elodie Lauten, New York City composer and recipient of the 2014 Robert Rauschenberg Award. Lauten had been exploring microtonality and alternative temperament since working on a Fairlight CMI synthesizer in the early 1980s and up until her untimely death, had been continuing these explorations with the Klio, her custom modular Reaktor software synthesizer.

Many Wilde Calm fans will be familiar with Lautens music from her numerous collaborations with fellow downtown luminary Arthur Russell. Lauten and Russell met through their mutual poet friend Allen Ginsberg and shared a similar sensibility of musical openness and possibility as evident in their spiritual club classic “In the Light of the Miracle” and Russells appearance on Lautens seminal post- minimalist masterwork The Death of Don Juan.

Five remastered selections from her most recent album Transformfeature on the EP in addition to a Wilde Calm remix. For fans of Laurie Spiegel and Suzanne Ciani, Lautens synth explorations are essential.

Edition of 100 copies printed on deluxe Stumptown White/Kraft Duplex jackets from Portlands Stumptown Printers. These jackets are really beautiful with a slight texture, off-white color, and kraft interior. Hand-numbered silk-screened jackets with a full-color insert." - Wilde Calm.
