Title: Ambulance
Format: LP
Label: Locust
Country: USA
Price: $17.00
"Here we have a gem for fans of early electronic music, sound art, & Fluxus antics. Desert Ambulance is another dip into the playfully enigmatic tomfoolery of senor Sender following last years acclaimed droner Worldfood. Kore (1962, dedicated to his daughter Xaverie, 1955-1989) is another classic unearthing of squiggly & eerie tape manipulation cut in the small attic studio Ramon put together at the Tape Music Center in 1962. Side B is the long-anticipated release of his best known work -- 1964s Desert Ambulance -- composed for Pauline Oliveros. Strictly limited edition vinyl only release w/ hand pasted covers boasting a still from Tony Martins visual abstract projections from the Desert Ambulance performance." - Locust.

Title: Worldfood
Format: CD
Label: Locust
Country: USA
Price: $14.50
"In those pre-Buchla Box days, we cobbled together whatever odd bits of equipment we could beg, borrow, steal and occasionally buy to coax whatever squeaks and chirps or sequences of noises we could from their complaining depths. -- Ramon Sender. Worldfood is a wild, psychedelic warble & drone of looped, overlayed tape pieces produced by goosing an ampex tape player with a computer calibration device. The resulting two pieces -- Worldfood III (To See With my Eyes) and WorldfoodX!! -- both part of a number of variations in a series -- make for gorgeous, careening sungazing music. Leave your glasses behind. Ramon Sender is a legendary figure in the Bay Area scene -- first paving the way for the San Francisco Tape Center with Mort Subotnick (Silver Apples of the Moon) and Pauline Oliveiros at the dawn of the 1960s where the stunningly out pieces on this disc happened. In subsequent years, he played an active role with the San Francisco Diggers -- the anarchist guerilla street theater group that challenged the emerging Counterculture --and co-founded the legendary Morningstar Ranch Commune in Sonoma County. Worldfood is the first in an ongoing series of archival discs to come from Ramon Senders exceptional vaults." - Locust
