Sacred Tapes is incredibly excited and honoured to have for our next release Philip Corner

Philip Corner is a multi-instrumentalist and visual artist most famous for his experimental compositions and recordings whose work spans 7 decades and includes titles such as Satie Slowly, Metal Meditations and Gong! A student of Olivier Messiean and associated with the fluxus movement of the 1960s, Philip has a penchant for Improvisation as can be seen here on 'More than the mysterious barricade'. This release is another stage in the series of releases and recordings in which Corner improvises around the core inspiration of François Couperin's 'Les Barricades Mystérieuses' each taking on a new variation on the title. For 'More than the mysterious barricade', recorded in 1995 at the school voor Nieuwe Dansontwikkeling, Corner performed with a groups of dancers led by Ria Higler. Corner has also created an insert for inclusion with the cassette.

For anyone who is new to Philip Corner we urge you to check out his back catalogue.

PLEASE NOTE – Bandcamp places a restriction on the size of the upload files so shown here are only extracts from the recordings. If purchasing a tape email me at and I will send a link to the full files.
