Jan Boerman - The Complete Tape Music (Donemus/NEAR, 2005)

Jan Boerman ranks highly among the heavyweights of Dutch tape music, though rare in his use of concrète elements. From his first introduction to the Philips studio in 1959, Boerman remained completely enamored in tape and electronic music, crafting a wide ranging catalog with an uncanny knack for timbre. This collection--among the many enormous assemblages of tape music released by Donemus--covers Boerman's tape works from his beginning in 1959 on into relatively recent works from 1997. Despite technological advances, Boerman remained true to the tape despite his studio at the Royal Conservatory at the Hague being equipped with modern sampling equipment. Further overview of the collection can be found here.
