Technical information


This is a collection of recordings of 20th-century classical, experimental, and electroacoustic music digitized from LPs whose music has in most cases never been released on CD, and so is effectively inaccessible to the vast majority of music listeners today. It derives largely from the now ceased Avant Garde Project.

The analog rig used to extract the sound from the grooves is near state-of-the-art, producing almost none of the tracking distortion or surface noise normally associated with LPs.

The AGP archive is a repository for AGP installments, the files of which can be downloaded from this website. Looking for a specific composer? Try our alphabetical index.

NOTE: To the best of our knowledge, all of the recordings on this site are currently out of print. If you know otherwise, please let us know ASAP, as we would not want any artists to be deprived of the royalties they so richly deserve. Please see the copyright policy for further information.
