fucking hell i never even knew about "correlations" - and there's a five cd box set of recording sessions for it? this is my jam for sure, top notch disco shit, i like this _way_ better than tgottsching's ambient stuff

one of my all-time fav tunes is "77 slightly delayed" which i've found leads into a disappointing album experience w/ "blackouts" since it's all downhill from there imo

any suggestions of where to find this magic elsewhere in the ashra / MG catalog ?

I'd suggest New Age of Earth but I love all of Blackouts so that that as you will

Was hoping this revive would be an announcement of Private Tapes reissues. Of course when they do that it'll be something stupid like 7xLP vinyl deluxe box sets

sadly true, also they'd split the long tracks between LP sides which I can't stand either

brimstead called it upthread with "Deep Distance", "Shuttle Cock", and "Lotus"

for the record i gave a quick listen to the box and here's my picks:

begleitmusik
deep distance
le bruit des origines
ultramarine
hausaufgabe

live stuff from the disco band is kinda disappointing to me tbh

These are all great choices but - call me a philistine - I wish he'd broken up "begleitmusik" into discrete tracks. There are some beautiful pillowy floating drones in the middle but I don't always have the patience to find them inside the 25 minute piece (which, as far as I can tell, is pretty randomly assembled rather than being an actual suite of related tracks). I don't remember if there are others like this, should revisit, but that one sticks out

I much prefer his ambient work. I recently listened to the first 4 Ashra albums and made this very satisfying playlist:

Sunrain (New Age Of Earth)
Ocean Of Tenderness (New Age Of Earth)
Deep Distance (New Age Of Earth)
77 Slightly Delayed (Blackouts)
Midnight On Mars (Blackouts)
Shuttle Cocks (Blackouts)
Ice Train (Correlations)
Oasis (Correlations)
Morgana Da Capo (Correlations)
Kazoo (Belle Alliance)
