It's been a while since we had one of these, so it's time for an avant-garde sharethread. Share noise, eai, onkyo, outsider music, whatever as long as it's outside traditional musical conventions. I'm sharing Vinyl Tranquiliser by Otomo Yoshihide, it's turntable music with elements of indeterminacy and sound collage. Each track lasts exactly one minute.
PREVIOUS AVANT-GARDE SHARETHREADS:
These are all the ones I remember, post more links to previous avant-garde sharethreads if I missed any.
On a sidenote, if anyone has Atläs' self-titled in a decent format, I'd love it. Can't find it on slsk or what.cd.
Anyway, enjoy sharing the weirdness, guys.

Adrian Rew - Slot Machine Music  [V0]
>field recordings of slot machines
Here's one I was the OP of. Although it wasn't a strictly avant sharethread, anything that this board usually doesn't discuss is okay too.
Pretty much every other thread on this board is for you, then!
Who's that guy?
Conlon Nancarrow - Studies for Player Piano  
>modern classical, 5 disc compilation of his amazing studies for player piano
Wolfgang Laade & Dieter Christensen - Lappish Joik Songs From Northern Norway  
>featured artists: Per Henderak Haetta, Henrik Buljo, Inga Susanne Haetta, Mathis N. Haetta, Inga M. Haetta, Nils N. Haetta, Nils N. Eira, Inga Kemi, Ašlak Bals, Ellen Marja Mathis Eira, Mikkel Eira
>recordings of traditional Sami joik music, 58 very short tracks (runtime circa 44 minutes), released on Folkways, liner notes included
Takako Minekawa & Dustin Wong - Savage Imagination  
>dreamy loops, post-pop, collaboration between Dustin Wong of Ponytail and Takako Minetaka [嶺川貴子], released on Thrill Jockey
Consider buying the record if you enjoy it!
Monoton - Monotonprodukt 07 20y++ [1982 / 2003 (remastered)] 
>minimal synth with a immersing atmosphere
Consider buying the record if you enjoy it!
Takako Minekawa & Dustin Wong - Toropical Circle  
>dreamy loops, post-pop, collaboration between Dustin Wong of Ponytail and Takako Minetaka [嶺川貴子], released on PLANCHA / Thrill Jockey
Cannae upload hundreds of gigabytes easily, sorry pal. Any specific sounds ya urge?
miltata - Private images  
>ambient pop with a very nice feeling to it, sorta feels like a dream
Since you're Scottish I don't suppose you have any of the noise stuff from Glasgow (Kylie Minoise, Nackt Insecten, Noma etc. etc.)? I pick up local stuff everytime I'm in Mono but there's tons.
I'll post something for you soonish.
Not really sure about stuff that's similar to the Minekawa and Wong record, but you might enjoy the artists on the flau and Schole labels?
I have not listened to this, though, so I cannae say how it is. The Russian industrial project Linija Mass reminds me a lot of this though.
I only have stuff from Kylie. Don't live in Scotland currently, so not sure about the local scene.
Birchville Cat Motel - Beautiful Speck Triumph
>lovely drone album with some noise in the mix, not overly abrasive tho
Can post some harsher stuff if you want.
石橋英子 [Eiko Ishibashi] - Works for Everything
>dreamy experimental / ambient pop
I'll be heading out now.
fun fact: best guitarist ever shawn lane did a conlon nancarrow style composition with guitar dubbing. a young buckethead heard a recording of this and, believing shawn was actually playing each note himself in real time, developed his famous finger nubbing technique in an effort to replicate what he believed was shawn's playing.
i think it's neat.
Mammane Sani et son Orgue - La musique electronique du Niger [2013 (recorded in 1978)] 
>minimal synth from Niger, recorded in 1978 but not released until 2013

>unclassifiable folk noise
Various Artists - Improvised Music from Japan
>free improv, feild recordings, noise, experimental
Just over 11 hours, lots of feild recordings and other experimental stuff going on. Really nice.
sorry guys, don't have a decent enough connection atm to upload the album but will share anyways.
track "MM" is a real favourite of mine
I know you're not being serious in the least bit but I suppose you could consider some of the peices on this album, such as Music For 50 IMacs bangers, but only in terms of this album.
a record of earthquake recordings and a calm narrator stating where each earthquake was, and at what speed you're hearing it.
I found this at a thrift store not too long ago, and couldn't find anything online about it, so I ripped it.
before anyone says the narrator is too quiet, that's how it is on the record as well.
Uploaded some new ambient, I hope this is an acceptable place for it.
Preslav Literary School - In Fractals
>ambient/drone/found sound/outsider noise mixed and edited into compelling 'ambient broadcasts'
Tuluum Shimmering - The Sky Tree
>ambient/drone, tribal/jungle theme, features a lot of reverby-looping piano, flutes, auxiliary percussion, nearly 2 hours worth of music
Jefre Cantu-Ledesma - Floating Weeds
>ambient,drone, minimalist focused more on a single drone as opposed to his other body of work
Jim O'Rourke - Long Night
>ambient/drone really minimalist, the best way I can describe it is walking home on a cool summer night with a bit of a headache, pure tonal calm
The OO-Ray - The Force of Water
>ambient/drone works focused primarily around the cello
Padang Food Tigers - Go Down, Moses
>short (~15 minutes) ep, ambient/drone/field recordings with sparse folk instrumentation, autumn defined
Super Minerals - The Pelagics
>psychedelic ambient/drone, concept album based on different depth levels of the ocean, all the instruments are soaked with so much processing it's really hard to figure out their source. Album starts off really lush before the bottom drops out.
Rhys Chatham - A Crimson Grail (For 400 Electric Guitars)
>ambient/drone/live, Chatham directed 400 guitarists through 4 leaders to create this amazing sonic requiem that lasted 12 hours.
Northern - Jessa
>ambient/drone VERY similar to Stars of the Lid with swells, grab it if you're a fan
Hakobune - The Cowboy Across the River
>ambient/drone, one of my all time favorite 'falling asleep' albums, extremely warm and pleasant
Natural Snow Buildings - The Wheel of Sharp Daggers
Venn Rain - Humming Hills
Actually give it a listen instead of doing this whole "iz juzt noize iz nat muzik" thing, give it some time to grow on you and you'll see why so many people like stuff like this.
thanks, I appreciate it, unfortunately this is my last post but it's a doozy, definitely pick this up.
Randall McCellan - The Healing Music of Rana
>Randall McClellan was a founding member of the electronic music studio at the Eastman School of Music in 1967 where he later received a Ph.D. in Composition, Theory and Musicology. With an interest in North Indian music and vocal techniques, he released several ambient cassettes that have recently been re-released on Sun Araw's label. Collection also includes a ridiculous "Music as a Healing Force Lecture" which is pretty out there.

Martin Tétreault / Kid Koala – Phon-O-Victo [Les Disques Victo] (2007) [v0]
>Abstract, Musique Concrète, Free Improvisation, Experimental turntable music
>Recorded at the 22th Festival international de musique actuelle de Victoriaville (Québec, Canada), May 21, 2006. Tétreault and Koala worked on a duo set that would bridge their differences through what they had in common: a fondness for old self-help and demonstration records. Humor was thus on the agenda. Only 38 minutes of the performance ended up on the disc, and those are, for the most part, the more abstract parts of the set.
Martin Tétreault – La Nuit Où J'Ai Dit Non [Audioview] (1997) [v0]
>Experimental free improv turntable musique concrete
>La nuit où j’ai dit non reveals a lesser known aspect of Martin Tétreault’s work. Here, nothing is brutal nor exacerbated; the music is instead ambient, cosmic, electronic… Hovering improvisations which develop through slow rhythms, long crossfades and delicate collages. La nuit où j’ai dit non is an intergalactical opera of space age musique concrète, chock full of details. All of this is the result of 25 LPs revolving on 4 turntables.
Christian Marclay – More Encores [No Mans Land] (1989) [v0]
>Experimental, electronic, Turntable music
>Each of the pieces here is dedicated to an artist whose records were used to create it. In the case of the Cage composition, Marclay cut slices from several records and pasted them back together on a single disc. On everything else the records were mixed together via several turntables simultaneously, then recorded and overdubbed in analogue. So what does it sound like? It's a mess, pure and simple. But in many cases, it's a compelling mess.
DJ Yoda & Heritage Orchestra - G. Prokofiev Concerto for Turntables [Nonclassical] (2009) [V0]
>turntablism, orchestral music
>G. Prokofiev Concerto for Turntables is the result of the successful synthesis of strange bedfellows; hip hop and classical orchestral music, "the Concerto For Turntables & Orchestra was borne to explore the tradition of cross pollination between art music and folk/dance idioms...", much more than generic string arrangements set to dance beats, the different styles are blended interestingly with it often being difficult to determine sample/turntable from orchestra until a section of instruments are abruptly scratched, distorted, looped, or otherwise interfered with, the sounds are characterized by unique rhythmic qualities and dense, carefully arranged compositions, under 300 listeners
yeah, lush album, surprised there is no eRikm in the archive, thought he would have upped some of his albums too
Hah, I uploaded one of his albums nae long ago.
Jérôme Noetinger & eRikm - What a Wonderful World

>bootleg with Weasel Walter of The Flying Luttenbachers playing improv drums over the whole record, INTENSE SHIT
Don't think there's a cover for this, it's kvlt as fuck.
so does all music from bandcamp have to stay away from everything else. because its from bandcamp does that not make it avant-garde?, or does it not make it music?. if music is posted on bandcamp does that make you automatically think its not worth your time? i dont get it
just found the other release on Faithways International on SLSKhttp://www.discogs.com/Shoko-Asahara-The-Sounds-Of-Japanese-Doomsday-Cults-Music-By-Aum-Shinri-Kyo-Leader-Shoko-Asahara/release/1029809

Füxa - The Modified Mechanics of This Device
>electronic, ambient, space rock, a really spaced out eclectic psychedelic album
Since this seems to be the right thread I was wondering if anyone had the full version of Und by Franz de Byl? Every version on slsk seems to be missing the last track (I think it's the seventh? Franz Wanz Ran and Fell or something like that)
Alan Maralung - The World's Musical Traditions, Volume 4: Bunggridj-Bunggridj: Wangga Songs: Northern Australia  
>Aboriginal Australian songs with digeridoo, released on Smithsonian Folkways, liner notes included
>Capture is an ironic solution to the crisis of industrial cultures. For years, the music industry continues to stage its disappearance, because the Internet users illegally download mp3 files. Capture is such a productive fictitious rock group, that nobody can consume everything. It produces new music, words, images, videos and derived products every hour. Every new file is automatically translated into other forms. If an mp3 file is downloaded once, it is erased from the server and therefore, it is the ‘consumer’ who becomes the only possible broadcaster. It submits new messages on Facebook and Twitter at every minute. A vast number of tasks are simultaneously automated that even the band members cannot listen to everything. In submerging the consumption by generative technologies, Capture reverses the consumerism ideology and the relation between desire and objects.
Sonic Youth, I.C.P. & The Ex - In the Fishtank
>free improvisation, half an hour of improv with a great lineup
Screwy Louie Comes To America // "Eight Ridiculous Progressions" (With Latin Overtones)

Tortoise + The Ex - In the Fishtank
>post-rock, experimental rock, great ep with nice jams, makes you long for more though because of the short length
Where the hell did you find this? Looks really interesting, to say the least.
Gétatchèw Mèkurya & The Ex - Moa Anbessa  
>Ethio-jazz punk, The Ex and their friends team up with a Ethiopian saxophonist, the end result is great
You can buy it at the label's site for ten bucks, anyone? It would be awfully kind! I would do it but I'm broke at the moment.
Wolf Eyes - Dread  [FLAC]
Various Artists - Voices of the Rainforest  
>nature recordings, Papuan traditional music, released on Smithsonian Folkways, liner notes included
>Voices of the Rainforest is a recorded soundscape of a day in the life of the Kaluli people of Bosavi, Papua New Guinea. As the day progresses, one hears birds, water, insects and other ambient voices of the rainforest interspersed with Kaluli songs and instrumental sounds of work, leisure and ritual. The album was recorded with Mickey Hart's advanced field recording gear by anthropologist and ethnomusicologist Dr. Steven Feld. Feld’s closeness to the Kaluli people afforded him a unique recording opportunity, and the quality of the recording equipment yielded among the clearest aural experiences of the rainforest short of being there. For further information about the community that created this music, visit the Bosavi Peoples Fund website. Voices of the Rainforest was issued in 1991 as part of “THE WORLD” series (now part of the Mickey Hart Collection made available by Smithsonian Folkways).
