Edgard Varese

Right now listening to Edgard Varese's "Complete Works Volume 1" and it strikes me as music that has no time or place. It's a beauty. Also this was one of my Dad's favorite records as well. I remember this album cover in my childhood years. At the time he would play this album loud, and it was disturbing to me - maybe due to my youth, but it seemed like music from a dark corner of a haunted house. But alas, listening to the album now, with full volume, it's a private world exposed as a piece of music. For those who love industrial (think of David Lynch's music) and early electronics - this is an essential masterpiece.
