Electronic Dance Music

Alwin Nikolais - Noumenon (1953) from Thomas Patteson on Vimeo.

Found an LP of this modernist choreographer Alwin Nikolais's electronic music at the annual yard sale they hold at the apartment block over the road from us in New York several years ago. Going for $1! Amazing sleeve.

Here's one of his pieces recreated for the opening credit sequence of The Company, that disappointing very late period (last one before he snuffed it?) Robert Altman movie about ballet.
