The Avant Garde Project is a series of 20th-century classical-experimental-electroacoustic torrents digitized from LPs whose music has in most cases never been released on CD, and so is effectively inaccessible to the vast majority of music listeners today. This is wild stuff, so check it out if you've never heard this sort of music before. The analog rig used to extract the sound from the grooves is near state-of-the-art, producing almost none of the tracking distortion or surface noise normally associated with LPs.

AGP1-105 are now available for direct download in the archive at

AGP106-110 and other recent AGP installments are also available at


AGP111 is a transcription of an LP containing two more works by Horatiu Radulescu, both of which feature the composer's beloved sound icon--a piano turned on its side and played directly on the exposed strings. In fact, one of the works is scored for 16 sound icons!

I have been hesitant to include this installment in the AGP because the LP is nominally in print on Edition RZ. However, Forced Exposure no longer includes it in their catalog, and the vast majority of people wouldn't be able to use an LP copy anyway. If anyone at Edition RZ comes across this and objects to a transcription being included in the AGP, I do hope they will contact me through the AGP website and let me know so I can remove it.

If you have a decent analog rig and you like this installment, I strongly encourage you to seek out a copy of the LP, as the complex percussive sounds of the sound icons lose their edge in being digitized at 16-bit/44-kHz. Also, I encourage everyone to check out the other excellent music published by Edition RZ and distributed through Forced Exposure. There are both LPs and CDs.

The torrent includes a PDF file with scans of the LP booklet notes.
