The audio companion to David Toop's excellent book advances the case he made, that Les Baxter, Aphex Twin, The Beach Boys, Herbie Hancock, King Tubby and My Bloody Valentine are all related by their effect on sound pioneering. A double-disc set, Ocean of Sound impresses not only with its incredible diversity of musical styles, but with how easily these artists work next to each other. The second disc includes consecutive contributions by Paul Schütze, the Velvet Undergound, Holger Czukay of Can, The Beach Boys, African Headcharge and Sun Ra. Besides illustrating Toop's point beautifully, the album is an excellent addition to the collection of any wide-ranging ambient fan.

John Adams, "Teach yourself German: A book of self-instruction in German based on the work"

John Adams, "Teach yourself German: A book of self-instruction in German based on the work"
Publisher: English Univ. Pr | 1955 | ISBN: N/A | English/German | PDF | 195 pages | 14.05 Mb

The book is pretty comprehensive and the old-fashioned style of teaching that is employed (tables, lists and words to learn by heart etc.) works well in the case of German. …
Paul F. Boller, John George “They Never Said It: A Book of Fake Quotes, Misquotes, and Misleading Attributions" (repost)

Paul F. Boller, John George “They Never Said It: A Book of Fake Quotes, Misquotes, and Misleading Attributions"
ISBN: 0195064690 | edition 1990 | PDF | 186 pages | 10,5 mb

This book full of spurious quotes and deliberate misattributions has a lesson for anyone who has ever nodded admiringly at a well-turned quotation that makes a partisan point with stunning effect. The lesson is to be wary of just such marvelous distillations of political wisdom. They're probably fakes….This is…a serious book, written with high good humor and solid research

2010 release. After seeing the overwhelming response to Safe Inside The Day in February 2008, the peerless Baby Dee returns with A Book Of Songs For Anne Marie. What was overwhelming about the response was the pure reaction to the purity of expression in Dee's music. That dizzying sense of self is again an essential feature of this new music. While the last album was lit with the production fire of Will Oldham and Matt Sweeney producing, A Book Of Songs For Anne Marie glows softly with the calming presence of Maxim Moston (arranger of some standing and part of Antony And The Johnsons' touring band). In essence, this album is a prequel to Safe Inside The Day. The songs here were released in a different set of recordings and in a limited-edition book form (150 copies!) on David Tibet's Durtro label back in 2004. For most listeners, this is its first outing. 12 tracks. - Amazon
John Cage - A Chance Operation (The John Cage Tribute) (1993)

John Cage: A Chance Operation (The John Cage Tribute) (1993)
Classical | EAC (APE & CUE) | 525 MB
Various mirrors: Rapidshare, Depositfiles, Megaupload & more!

This two-CD set celebrating John Cage features works by various luminaries in the international avant-garde circle performing works by or in memoriam of the iconoclastic composer John Cage. Programmed to random play by the listener qua co-creator and mixed with whatever other sounds the listener brings to the listening space and whatever sounds happen to be present, the album becomes what Cage calls "real music," not a relic of music: One hundred and forty-one minutes of 183 pieces of 23 works, in any order, with any other sounds. The irony will not be lost on fans of Cage's work that a recorded tribute album for a composer who disliked the recorded medium is at best a strange tribute. But that said, considering the uniqueness of the collection – and indeed the clout of the listed performers – even the most orthodox of Cage disciples will be pleased with this recording.
Some would say that Frank Zappa's participation alone in this project, featuring his rendition of Cage's infamous 4'33", is worth looking into.
