Unseen Worlds Records

I recently attended a listening party for a soon-to-be-released album from Lubomyr Melnyk, the self-proclaimed "fastest pianist ever." Just looking at his scores drops my jaw.

The record is coming out on a cool re-issue label called "Unseen Worlds," run by my friend Tommy.

Their first release was a fantastic record called "Out of the Blue" by "Blue" Gene Tyranny. Tyranny has performed with John Cage, Laurie Anderson, David Behrman and others. This album is a sort of late-70's pop-funk thing, with some wild experimental parts. Tyranny's website can be found here.

You can listen here or here.
