The Avant Garde Project

July 30th, 2006

The Avant Garde Project is a series of recordings of 20th-century classical-experimental-electroacoustic music 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.

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.

New AGP installments are released as bittorrents each Friday night around midnight (GMT), and can be accessed through either The Pirate Bay or Mininova. New torrents are announced on the I Hate Music Forum.

The AGP archive is a repository for earlier installments, the files of which can be downloaded from this website.

NOTE: To the best of my knowledge, all of the recordings on this site are currently out of print. If you know otherwise, please let me know ASAP, as I do not wish to deprive any artists of their much-deserved royalties (however small). Please see the AGP copyright policy for further information.
