Jack Tamul, Electro/Acoustic

1980 Vintage 12" LP - Brand New - Virgin Vinyl - Never Played
Individually signed by the artist!
A must for collectors of electronic music!

Jack Tamul's 1980 recording for Spectrum Records is classic electronic music release. This record is a gem. We thank Jack for donating a small number of his archival stock to electro-music.com to help us get our site going.

This fabulous recording includes both electronic sounds and choruses of real human singers! (Not sampled voices too often heard today). This is seminal space music. Also, there is great sound/text music, and vintage looping tracks as well. Listening to this makes you realize in retrospect that Jack was a pioneer. Even the liner notes by the legendary electronic music composer William Hoskins are excellent. You don't find this kind of thoughful analysis on todays recordings.

Here's what Keyboard Magazine said in an April, 1982 review:

"The most consistently successful [of contemporary electronic artists] is Jack Tamul, whose Electro/Acoustics (Spectrum Records [Harriman, NY 10926], SR-134) belongs basically in the contemporary classical camp. The predominant sonority on this album is a thick wash of sustained tones, sometimes rising and falling and sometimes augmented by a choir. Clearly, Tamul isn't trying to be engaging, but his results are consistent and well thought-out."

Downbeat Magazine more insightfully had this to say in their September, 1982 issue:

Jack Tamul is among the new artists with "legitimate" credentials trying to move beyond this [contempory music] sterility to create personal visions. Electro/Acoustic merges the natural sounds of a choral group or accordion with synthesizers and tape manipulation techniques. By blurring the distinction between these sounds, Tamul moves his music to a spiritual level past theoretical considerations. For instance, Genesis is a textural blend of droning electronics and a tape-treated chorus. The effect formed is of being in the middle of a Buddhist chant as synthesized whips of wind create a movement and ascend towards an infinity of time. The all-electronic Fantasia descends like sirens from the sky, gradually coalescing around an organ cycle reminiscent of Terry Riley's A Rainbow In Curved Air.

We know for a fact that Jack is working with a contemporary record label to re-release this recording as a CD. When that happens, these vintage records will immediately increase in value.

Thanks, Jack, for making it possible for us to offer these records to electro-music.com's customers.

Sorry, limit one to a customer.
