Synopsis

Album Description
Conrad is a founding father of minimalism and a giant in the American soundscape. His Audio ArtKive imprint continues to document the wild breadth of his 40-year career, with an array of releases that includes field recordings, piano compositions, power electronics, and more. He starred in Ira Cohen's legendary film, "The Invasion Of Thunderbolt Pagoda" and made extensive solo recordings, including "Joan Of Arc", available here for the first time. It's one of his favorites; a long piece for pump organ, which conjures both searing white heat and malignant gothic dread. Restored stills from the film are included in this release's packaging. "Tony Conrad is a pioneer, as seminal in his way to American music as Johnny Cash or Captain Beefheart or Ornette Coleman, one of those really savvy old guys whom all the kids want to emulate because their ideas and their style are electric and new and somehow indivisible" - Atlanta Journal-Constitution.
