Default Other Music

I can't for the life of me remember downloading their album Incidents out of Context, but I'm glad I did. It's a little known gem if you ask me. There's not a whole lot about the band on the net, but you can read their history here: Other Music Ensemble: History, Part 1.
They were around from 1975 to 1986 and only released two LPs, and I've only heard the second, from 1983. It's kind of bizarre, but real cool. A lot of electronic tones and dulcimer hammering, but it's all melodic and relatively conventional. I'm no expert, so hear for yourself

Back the **** in the day

This band is something alright, and quite the obscurist's wet dream. I just randomly thought of this album and wanted to toss it on. I love this

Remember when Other Music blew me away as well when I found out about them years back. Cool mix of gamelan-like jazz with microtonal electronics and hammered dulcimers. Haven't listened to them much ever since, but revisited this album today when I browsed back in this forum and found this thread. While the album sure have a couple of top notch supreme moments, now I actually find it extremely uneven and partly even annoying. It sure is worth trying out for the high lights, though. Thanks for the info link!
However, what I actually came here to say is to recommend another group that I allways connect with Other Music, not mainly because it sounds very similar, but it has a similar take on experimenting and I guess they kind of fits right next to each other in the "obscurist's wet dream". Also I remember finding them on the same day I found Other Music, which probably is the biggest reason I connect them (so this recommendation might be considered a bit off topic for some, maybe).

Baroque Jazz Trio
French trio blending baroque harpsichord stuff with ethnic avant-jazz, putting out one album in '70. This one has been more of a keeper for me throughout the years, allthough it is also somewhat uneven. Anyhow, you might wanna try it!

Back in the 90s, while staying at a favorite B&B in Seattle,
I met the daughter of David Doty of Other Music.
I was a fan of their album, Prime Numbers, and we spent
an evening talking about the band. Will have to revisit them.

I really like this! It seems to be pretty hard to find their albums unfortunately.
