Archival Pauline Oliveros MP3

In both dog years and electronic-music years, the early 1980s is a lifetime ago. That’s when Pauline Oliveros released her Accordion and Voice, an album of insular, searching drones. The Important Records label this year remastered the analog master tapes and rereleased the album on CD. A free download, “Horse Sings from a Cloud” (MP3), has been made available for promotional purposes. On it, she chants like an introspective shaman while her trademark accordion holds long, singular notes and simple chords. Those bellows-powered tones resemble the machine-generated sine waves of an even earlier generation of electronic music, a generation she helped motivate as one of the key figures in the original San Francisco Tape Music Center.
