Debut Recording of the composer's landmark work. One of Arnold Dreyblatt's finest achievements. The first and only edition. Produced in a small and limited print run as a Compact Disc that sold out shortly after its release and has not been reissued. Now available only in its inferior download version. There is no ISBN. The First Edition is now rare. Presents Arnold Dreyblatt's "The Adding Machine" in a definitive performance by The Orchestra of Excited Strings. "Pulses ecstatically with retuned strings and looping beats. The Orchestra of Excited Strings, composed of restrung cimbaloms, piano wire basses, hurdy-gurdys, refretted guitars, creates transcendent layers of scratching, twanging, plucking, and bowing. A disciple of LaMonte Young and Alvin Lucier, he has cultivated a strong underground fan base. File it under Ethno-Eastern European folk techno-microtonal rock" (Publisher's blurb). "The perfect soundtrack to the urban life" (The New York Times). An absolute "must-have" title for Arnold Dreyblatt and The Orchestra of Excited Strings collectors. This copy of the Compact Disc (CD) is very prominently and beautifully signed in black pen-marker in front by Arnold Dreyblatt. It is signed directly on the cover itself, not on a tipped-in page. This title is a contemporary classic. As far as we know, this is the only such signed copy of the CD available online, is enclosed in its own protective plastic sleeve, and has no flaws, a pristine beauty. Please note: Because of its very limited number, its collectible value will not only keep but increase over time. There is only one other copy available online, un-signed, for almost $90. This is surely an accessible and lovely alternative. A rare signed copy thus. One of the most brilliant composers of our time. A flawless copy. . ISBN B01KBI542Y. $70.00
