    Anyone know any good websites about experimental music ?

    Also I'd really like to get hold of an online / pdf version of Michal Nyman's book 'Experimental Music : Cage and Beyond' - I've got a hard copy I could laboriously scan, but it would be easiest to download! Anyone got any leads?

    And while I'm ask ask asking, any recommendations for 'avant garde' / funk crossover material . . . ?

    And as for recommendations of music:

    Vincent Gemignani - Modern Pop Percussion
    Some very avantgarde percussion primarily based on an own invented sound sculpture that produces some very cool sounds of varying kinds. This is mixed with a couple of funky pop-tracks with scat vocals that sound like Italian soundtracks. It's all incredibly good.

            a good site for Pierre Henry/prospective 21 siecle/Shandar/Baschet discography.

            as for Gemignani, his "pop percussion" lp was arranged by Vladimir Cosma extensively using a sculptural percussive instrument called the "bronté" created by Gemignani which can aslo be heard on Jack Arel/J.C Petit "seasons suite" chappell. Also on "pop symphony" by Jason Havelock (aka Ivan Julien). The instrument is very similar to those developed by the Baschet brothers.

            You may be able to find the Nyman book on soulseek in the modern composers room.

            more French avant pop crossovers:
            Francois Bayle - solitioude
            jacques LeJeune - d'une multitude en fete
            Bernard Parmegiani - popeclectic
            Pierre Henry - machine dance

              Yeah - that's right - the Pierre Henry rock stuff is pretty far out and funky!
              I'm not that into his sighing doors though... more fun as a concept than something to listen to...
