1908-1994
"Raymond Scott was in the forefront of developing electronic music technology and using it commercially as a musician."
Robert Moog

In pursuit of the perfect sideman

The long awaited second collection of Raymond Scott electronica is finished. The album, titled Three Willow Park: Electronic Music from Inner Space, 1961-1971, will feature over 60 previously unreleased recordings by Scott from the decade before he left to work for Motown in L.A. Most of the tracks were recorded on devices he invented, and the Motown Electronium will be heard for the first time on disc. The 3-LP set, which serves as a companion to the Y2K 2-cd set Manhattan Research, Inc.,  is scheduled for release in 2017 on Basta, and will include a 20-page LP-sized booklet and a 300-page downloadable pdf of archival artifacts.
