Used item. Includes booklet. LP sleeve is closer to VG++ or NM- mostly due
to small wear on upper right side corner, plus tiny wear spots along top edge.
All in all, a great copy.

Tracklist:
A1. Epitaph Für Aikichi Kuboyama
B1. - B6. Sechs Studien

Herbert Eimert (1897-1972) was a German music theorist, musicologist,
journalist, music critic, radio producer and composer. Eimert, a fervent
disciple of Arnold Schonberg, felt strongly that his mentor's 12-tone ideal
could be best achieved through the use of electronics. This classic electronic
music reissue from Wergo's influential Studio Reihe series features Epitaph,
Eimert's powerfully emotional spoken-word based tribute to Japanese
fisherman Aikichi Kuboyama, who died of radiation poisoning incurred when
first hydrogen bomb was tested in the South Pacific in 1954. The pairing,
Eimert's Sechs Studien, was composed immediately after Epitaph. Derived
from the same source material, the studies use only abstract musical
sounds in a spectrum where the spoken word can no longer be recognized.
