Celebrated for the thrilling roar of his amplified violin, Conrad is a founding father of "minimalism" and a giant in the American soundscape. Now his own Audio ArtKive imprint presents the first in a series of releases that reveal the wild breadth of his 40-year career, including field recordings, piano compositions, film soundtracks and more. "Fantastic Glissando" (1969) is a series of (d)evolving electronic compositions created with sine-wave oscillators. The instrumentation is different, but the effect is typical Conrad: soaring, aggressively textured, and jet-engine massive. This first-time CD release contains an extra ten-minute bonus track not included on the original LP version.
