Musicians

Bob Drake
Musician, artist and photographer of cemetaries

Bret Hart
Guitarist out of North Carolina. Check the Instrumentales Duet series, and many other fine recordings here... 

Ken Hyder
Fae Dundee - London based drummer, works w/Tim Hodkinson, Maggie Nicols - his band Talisker bridged the gap between free music and scottish folk, and he once did an album w/Dick Goughan, which is about as good as a CV gets, in my opinion...

Kaffe Mathews
Generally marvellous violinist and sound manipulator 

Deep Listening Institute
All you might want to know about Pauline Oliveros and collaborators.

Paul Hession
banging the big soft drum set in Leeds, UK

Caroline Kraabel
Musings on Life and Sound

Sonicanta

Glenn Weyant's project involves playing the fences between the US and Mexico: the resulting mixes are yours to download.



Philip Jeck

Sound and turntable artist. Perhaps best known for installations involving dansettes, but his solo stuff is absorbing and wonderful too, if less visually spectacular.


Smack 77
Si Mack's YouTube Channel, including D-fekt


Tri-centric Foundation
Home of all things to do with Anthony Braxton.


Lee Noyes
Drummer, guitarist, composer, based in Sweden.

Zines

Perfect Sound Forever

Experimental Musical Instruments
Site of the american mag of the same name - the title more or less tells you everything, ie it's about unusual instruments, so if that's what you want, this is where it is...
