Geodesium (KM 1132) (1977)

Playful, independently produced/released synthesiser space music Lp from the late 70s. The version of Pete Tchaikovsky’s “Arabian Dance” (for which Geodesium lynchpin Mark C. Petersen gives himself half writing credit) is as good a use for electronic sound reprocessing as I’ve ever heard. Goofy, if not bat shit crazy, liner notes. Still, more Eko’s kinda thing than mine.

A speculative Scottsville, Virginia chaz buy; it’s slightly pricey, but not worth that much.

  1. any record with a picture of a guy with sideburns playing a Synthi AKS must be worth owning. lol

  2. likewise, digging the sideys’-almost-touching-moustache vibes…and the reel-to-reels, natch

  3. It’s like he’s having a jam with a computer on the back cover!

  4. How this album came to be is great. I mean, if you read about how, this was music made for the Planetarium in Boulder Colorado at the time, and people kept asking him for copies of the music…. It’s pretty cool that Mark Petersen decided to form his label Loch Ness Monster Productions and then released all this music.. and THEN… a bunch of planetariums purchased the rights to play this music at their shows… Pretty awesome… I know there are original copies of another album by them for order from Permanent Records, but originals of this one may be out of stock…..
