Edgard Varese ( Composser French 1883-1965 ) Original 4 Channel Discrete QUADRA Disc LP Album * OFFRANDES / INTEGRALES / OCTANDRE / ECUATORIAL * in Pristine Mint Condition still with ShrinkWrap intact. Recorded in 4 Channel Quad by The Contemporary Chamber Ensemble with Arthur Weisberg conducting featuring Jan DeGaetani ( mezzo-soprano ) and Thomas Paul ( bass ) in 1972 on Nonesuch Records number HQ-1269 . Varèse's music features an emphasis on timbre and rhythm. He was the inventor of the term "organized sound", a phrase meaning that certain timbres and rhythms can be grouped together, sublimating into a whole new definition of sound. His use of new instruments and electronic resources led to his being known as the "Father of Electronic Music" while Henry Miller described him as "The stratospheric Colossus of Sound". He is also known for having re-introduced the 'Idee-fixe', a term first introduced by the French composer Hector Berlioz.He composed "Poeme Electronique" for use at the 1958 Worlds Fair. Using 400 speakers separated throughout a series of rooms, Varese created a sound and space installation geared towards experiencing sound as you move through space. One of Varèse's biggest fans was the American guitarist and composer Frank Zappa, who, upon hearing a copy of The Complete Works of Edgard Varèse, Vol. 1, which included Intégrales, Density 21.5, Ionisation, and Octandre, became obsessed with the composer's music. On his 15th birthday, December 21, 1955, Zappa's mother, Rosemarie, allowed him a call to Varèse as a present. At the time Varèse was in Brussels, Belgium, so Zappa spoke to Varèse's wife Louise instead. Eventually Zappa and Varèse spoke on the phone, and they discussed the possibility of meeting each other, although this meeting never took place. Zappa also received a letter from Varèse. Varèse's spirit of experimentation and redefining the bounds of what was possible in music lived on in Zappa's long and prolific career. Both the LP Vinyl and Album Jacket ( still with ShrinkWrap ) , as well as original Quad Inner Sleeve are in Perfect Pristine Like New Condition. LP Vinyl is like brand new and never seems to have been played with original high-gloss sheen.
