The Oakland Elementary School Arkestra – The Saga Of Padani
Modern Harmonic – MH-8067
2 × LP, Compilation, Clear Vinyl With Sunrays
Released: 31 Aug 2018
Enthusiastic recommend for fans of Sun Ra, Terry Riley, Avant-Garde jazz and weird chamber music. The fact that records like this exist, make me happy to be alive. Beautiful, joyful noise of curious children.Most of you will hate it, but those rendered curious by the description will likely be thrilled by the discovery. Also, it comes with a Sun Ra coloring book, crossword and pyramid word puzzle. It is every bit as awesome as it sounds.
Taken from hype sticker:
“SCHOOLKIDS!The Oakland Elementary School Arkestra presents the odyssey of 4th, 5th & 6th grade students from novice musicians into an avant garde ensemble. An ensemble that engenders an array of sonic textures which never remain static or stagnant, but flow in a way that it’s always surprising, often startling and astonishing.”
