Now Shipping: Jon Gibson and Ellen Fullman February 21 2020

Shipping this week, double LP archival collections from two trailblazers of 20th Century minimalism.

Since the mid-1960s, Jon Gibson has played a key role in the development of American avant-garde music. Songs & Melodies brings together recordings from 1973 to 1977 (mostly previously unreleased), featuring prominent figures in New York's scene including Arthur Russell, Barbara Benary and Julius Eastman.

Ellen Fullman began developing The Long String Instrument in her St. Paul, Minnesota studio in 1980. In The Sea features music from two rare 1987 cassettes as well as a previously unreleased piece from 1988. Droning, organ-like overtones that are as unique in the world of sound as her vision of the instrument itself.
