The Avant Garde Project is a series of recordings of 20th-century classical, experimental, and electroacoustic music digitized from LPs whose music has in most cases never been released on CD, and so is effectively inaccessible to the vast majority of music listeners today.
The analog rig used to extract the sound from the grooves is near state-of-the-art, producing almost none of the tracking distortion or surface noise normally associated with LPs.
The AGP archive is a repository for AGP installments, the files of which can be downloaded from this website. Looking for a specific composer? Try our alphabetical index.
NOTE: To the best of my knowledge, all of the recordings on this site are currently out of print. If you know otherwise, please let me know ASAP, as I would not want any artists to be deprived of the royalties they so richly deserve. Please see the AGP copyright policy for further information.
The Avant Garde Project is a huge archive of more than 150 albums of experimental music. It’s all been ripped from LPs, and it seems that most if not all of this music has never been released on CD. There’s a wide range of experimental music here; you may like some and hate some, but if you’re curious about experimental music, you should check out some of these recordings.
