Alvin Curran – Canti E Vedute Del Giardino Magnetico

Alvin Curran
Canti E Vedute Del Giardino Magnetico
Label: Ananda
Catalog Number: Ananda ‎– n°1
Released: 1975, 70's
Stream:

American composer and multi-instrumentalist Alvin Curran’s fantastic debut Canti E Vedute Del giardino Magnetico, which translates to Songs and Views from the Magnetic Garden, consists of two sidelong pieces. The first side, a blend of cymbals, glass chimes, harmonica, flugelhorn and soprano vocals from Margherita Benetti, is pure avant-garde experimental music, and a bit more of a challenging listen than the flip – which is more of a flowing and relaxing piece. The epic twenty plus minute journey held together by pulsing synth drones and flourishes is reminiscent of Curran’s contemporary Terry Riley, and was a daytime favorite at ISC.
