DOWNLOAD-CODE BEDRUCKTE INNENHÜLLEN IM PAPP-SCHUBER 8-SEITIGES BOOKLET MIT NOTIZEN ZU JEDEM TRACK UND EINEM GESCHICHTLICHEN ÜBERBLICK "RAYMOND SCOTT war definitiv ein Pionier in der Entwicklung der Musiktechnologie und ein Pionier darin, sie kommerziell als Musiker zur Anwendung zu bringen." - Robert Moog RAYMOND SCOTT (1908-1994) war zwischen den dreißiger und fünfziger Jahren ein bekannter Bandleader, Komponist und Pianist.

Viele seiner verspielten Riffs, die er ursprünglich zwischen 1937 und 1939 mit dem RAYMOND SCOTT QUINTETTE aufnahmen, sind beinahe Teil des Gencodes eines jeden menschlichen Wesens, denn seinerzeit adaptierte der Warner Bros.

Musikdirekter Carl Starling die Riffs für über 100 Bugs Bunny und Daffy Duck Cartoons. Die Wiederentdeckung von SCOTTs originalen Jazzaufnahmen führten in den Neunzigern zu einer verspäteten Wertschätzung de vergessenen Genies.

Sein frühen Werke wurden vom KRONOS QUARTET, von DON BYRON, dem METROPOLE ORCHESTRA, dem BEAU HUNKS SEXTETTE und unzähligen anderen gecovert, während Bands wie RUSH, THEY MIGHT BE GIANTS, DEVO und viele, viele mehr sich an "Powerhouse" von 1937 bedienten und sich die Themen in Trickserien wie den Simpsons, Animaniacs und Duckman wiederfanden.

Während SCOTT als Bandleader aktiv waren, verdichteten sich die Gerüchte um ein Alter Ego, einen elektronischen Musikpionier im Laborkittel und während seine Arbeit in diesem Feld wenig publiziert wurde, änderte sich das 1997 mit dem Re-Issue der "Soothing Sounds For Baby"-Trilogie von 1963.

Die Trilogie enthielt ruhige elektronische Kompositionen, die Kinder beruhigen und entzücken sollten.

Im Rückblick wird ebenfalls deutlich, dass sich der Pioniergeist von SCOTT in punkto rhythmischer Minimalismus aus dem Synthesizer schließlich auf TERRY RILEY, PHILLIP GLASS, KRAFTWERK oder BRIAN ENO übertrug.

Doch die "Soothing Sounds." konnten nicht erwarten lassen, was Basta auf dem 2CD-Set "Manhattan Research Inc." (MRI) zeigte - mehr als zwei Stunden bahnbrechender elektronischer Musik aus den Jahren 1956-1969.

Ausflüge in die Musique Concrète und Kollaborationen zu Filmsoundtracks mit einem gewissen Jim Henson, der später mit den Muppets für Furore sorgen sollte treffen hier auf pangalaktische Sounds, die klingt, als würde sie von UFOs ausgestrahlt.

Music On Vinyl präsentiert eine neue Edition von MRI als 3LP-Set! 180 GRAM AUDIOPHILE VINYL 3 LP-SET / PRINTED INNERSLEEVES IN SLIPCASE INCL.

8 PAGE BOOKLET WITH FULL TRACK NOTES AND A HISTORICAL OVERVIEW FREE DOWNLOAD INDIVIDUALLY NUMBERED RAYMOND SCOTT HAD A HUGE INFLUENCE ON ENO, FRIPP, REICH, GLASS AND KRAFTWERK "Raymond Scott was definitely in the forefront of developing electronic music technology and in the forefront of using it commercially as a musician." -Robert Moog- Raymond Scott (1908-1994) was a renowned bandleader, composer and pianist from the 1930s to the 1950s.

Many of his playful riffs, originally recorded from 1937 to 1939 by the Raymond Scott Quintette, are genetically encoded in every earthling, having been adapted by Warner Bros.

music director Carl Stalling in over 100 Bugs Bunny and Daffy Duck cartoons. (These themes were later featured in The Ren and Stimpy Show.) The rediscovery of Scott's original novelty jazz recordings led to a belated reappraisal of Scott's timeless and long forgotten genius in the 1990s.

These early works were covered by the Kronos Quartet, Don Byron, the Metropole Orchestra, the Beau Hunks Sextette, and countless other admirers.

Scott's 1937 rave-up "Powerhouse" has been nicked by Rush, They Might Be Giants, Devo, and countless others, as well as being used thematically in The Simpsons, Animaniacs, and Duckman.

During Scott's career as a popular bandleader, there were reports of an alter ego -- inventor, professor in the lab coat, electronic music pioneer.

But little of this work received public exposure. That changed in 1997 with Basta's CD reissue of Scott's 1963w Soothing Sounds for Baby (SSFB) trilogy.

These albums, largely overlooked upon their original LP release, contained gentle, all-electronic sonic companions designed to calm and delight infants.

In retrospect, however, Scott's pioneering and little-heard explorations of synthesized rhythmic minimalism and low-key ambience foreshadowed the subsequent conjuring of Terry Riley, Phillip Glass, Kraftwerk and Brian Eno.

Most of Scott's works were performed on vacuum tube- and transistor-rigged music machines which he designed and built.

But SSFB couldn't prepare the world for the exotic artifacts found on Basta's 2-CD set, Manhattan Research Inc.

MRI, first issued on Basta in 2000, contains 69 tracks recorded from 1956 to 1969-over two hours' worth of Scott's groundbreaking electronic work in adult dimensions.

Forays into abstract musique concrete are heard alongside film soundtrack collaborations with a young pre-Muppet Jim Henson, and pan-galactic sonics seemingly beamed down from hovering UFOs.

In addition, MRI presents some of the first TV and radio commercials to feature electronic music.

Now, Music on Vinyl presents a new edition of MRI in a 3-LP set, including full track notes, a historical overview, and newly designed covers.

The package contains an 8-page booklet, printed innersleeves and a free download coupon for the complete album.

The "personnel" on MRI consists of such Scott inventions as the CLAVIVOX, a keyboard Theremin that was later modified to produce an array of sounds similar to a synthesizer; the ELECTRONIUM, an instantaneous composition-performance console (conceived in the '50s, and developed in the '70s, used at MOTOWN in the '60s); polyphonic sequencers, including his "CIRCLE MACHINE"; the Rhythm Modulator; Bandito the Bongo Artist; and the Bass Line Generator; along with existing sound devices (e.g., the Ondioline and tone generators).
