Huh. I've never heard of this guy before, but he sounds quite intriguing. Thanks for this post! Tod Dockstader.

I'm sensing a trend here somewhere.

You mean, of course, the trend toward septuagenerian composers reemerging and revisiting their musique concrète roots?

Oh, wait. No, you mean hama7 making FPPs that consist only of someone's name. That trend.

Dockstader is an interesting composer, and thanks for the post, hama7.

The [der] part of the post (ubu web) is amazing. Joyce, Appolinaire, ee cummings, so many - reading their work. (Along with the subject of this post.)

Fantastic post, hama7, thanks. I knew nothing about this guy, and should have known about him long ago.

Oh, and Two Moons of Quartermass is brilliant ambient/collage/noise - just the right combo of structure and chaos, quiet and aggression. Most of the electronic experimental stuff I've heard from the 50s and 60s has been unlistenable, more academic than interesting. Dockstader's pieces are very different; something like Travelling Music sounds years ahead of its time. Even the harsher, more chaotic Apocalypse has more depth to it than other stuff I've heard from the same time. Thanks again, this is a great find.

Coolness. I was just listening to Aerial #1. It's the only one of his albums I have, but I love it and I'm mad to get more.

hama7 you've done it again. Despite the one name post, great post man.

I loves me some Dockstader. I just didn't realize how much.
