5 Jun 2008, 20:54 by teledynThis is turning out to be a tougher search than I expected! It seems nearly no-one produces records as a sound-furniture that is expected to live in the real world. Nearly everyone tries to demand, capture and hostage our entire attention (the spoiled little darlings) to the exclusion of anything else that may be there, in the sounds of that space, where we are, then, while we listen. Its as if they cannot bear the thought that we may already have a sound environment which they did not create -- even "new age environmental" insists on giving me THEIR frogs, crickets, waterfalls and thunderstorms!
But that is not the case. Is it.
Such records-objects as sounds-in-themselves must exist; I'm hoping you can help me find them :)
Even the John Cage tribute, A Chance Operation, while assembled by chance operations, is a fixed piece of relentless sound covering every inch/second of the available canvas. It may coexist with other sounds, but grants them no space in the programme.

28 Feb 2008, 00:17 by mosesxanDay 4 of listening to my entire CD collection...
19. Coldplay - Brothers and Sisters
Three song EP that came out a year before Parachutes. It's not hard to hear why they were picked up by a major label based on early material. Also not hard to see that they were going to be huge.
20. Einojuhani Rautavaara - Cantus Articus
Cantus Articus is a concerto for birds and orchestra. Taped bird noises interwoven with live orchestra. Sounds lame, sounds gimmicky, but it's not. I've seen this live in concert (thank you Alabama Symphony Orchestra) and was blown away. Needless to say, it rubs the traditionalists the wrong way (and it was awesome to hear grumbling and complaining in the concert hall), but this is very serious music and worth paying attention to.
