Tod Dockstader: Quatermass
One of the four rare Dockstader lp’s on Owl from the 60’s. Haven’t heard the other 3, but this is supposedly the best. It is pretty darn great! Unlike many Avant Garde artists of his era, Dockstader was not really a composer – his background was in sound engineering – and his music very much reflects his interest in sounds. This record was actually produced without using many real instruments even. I believe he used something like a rubber balloon, a roll of adhesive tape, cymbals, and ring modulator to create the sounds heard here.
