Don Robertson - Starmusic
DON ROBERTSON - STARMUSIC
two posts in one day to make up for lost time...imagine pixellated space dust synclavier II sprinklings floating down from the far reaches of the galaxy.....these are the vibes i get from Don Robertson's ode to the universe 'Starmusic'. after a couple of years studying with morton feldman in new york, robertson made the incredible proto-new age album 'Dawn' in the late 60s. in the 70s and 80s he naturally gravitated to synthesizer music land and made several private press and hard to find tapes and albums. 'Starmusic' is a perfect soundtrack to Calvino's Cosmicomics. and then there is the requisite blasted into outer space treatment of Satie's Gymnopedie as a bonus. thanks to a very generous follower of the blog who sent this tape (and many others!) to me. enjoy enjoy!
