Wilde Calm Records is honored to present new work from the late Elodie Lauten, New York City-based composer and recipient of the 2014 Robert Rauschenberg Award. Lauten had been exploring microtonality and alternative temperament since the early 1980s, first with a Fairlight CMI synthesizer and more recently with the Klio, her custom modular Reaktor software synthesizer. Many Wilde Calm fans will be familiar with Lauten's music from her numerous collaborations with fellow downtown luminary Arthur Russell. Lauten and Russell met through their mutual poet friend Allen Ginsberg and shared a similar sensibility, evident in their spiritual club classic In the Light of the Miracle and Russell's appearance on Lauten's seminal post-minimalist masterwork The Death of Don Juan. This EP includes five remastered selections from Lauten's 2013 album, Transform, and a Wilde Calm remix. Lauten's synth explorations are essential for fans of Laurie Spiegel and Suzanne Ciani.
