Jan Boerman: The complete tape music of Jan Boerman

Besides Germany, France and to some extend Sweden, the Netherlands were probably the most active European country in the formation of electronic music (c.1950-80). The Dutch vintage electronic music scene comprises such notable names like Dick Raaijmakers, Ton Bruynèl, Tom Dissevelt (aka Kid Beltran) and the exiled trio Roland Kayn-Konrad Boehmer-Gottfried Michael Koenig (all three originally from Germany, but living in Holland for many years). Jan Boerman, whose complete electronic works we are featuring here today, is probably the most difficult one to find, as his 5CD box originally released on Donemus remains out of print/deleted.

Some basic links to further explore the Dutch electronic music scene:

NB: This upload took me a week at the nternet caffee and was a major invest of my time and money, and there won't be any other larger posts like this - especially given the unfortunate fact that, judged from the lack of comments to previous posts, I'm doing it for a bunch of "hit and run" freeriders who failed to understand the basic ideas of interactive web 2.0.

Wonderful. Thank you for this

I'm afraid you won't get famous and popular running an experimental music blog. Have you ever think of a Radiohead post? Keep on the good work, anyway!

A big thank you Adam, lest I be permanently assigned to aforementioned slacker status. Much joy as you are about the only one specifically dedicated to early "classic" electronic and synth. Filling a need (in light of the much loved scorebabyannex and technicolor dreamspot(?)), so glad you are still kicking it! btw, are you accepting submissions (vinyl rip) for ul?

WTF?! No really, I mean it. WTF?

This is just what this fella needed today, thank you so very much for this. This is my first time here but I'm digging this one so much I'll just have to check out the rest of your blog as well.

This is one of the most "out" posts I've ever seen on the web, and well worth the time it took to DL it... I just hope you still think it was worth your while to upload it.

Again, thanks a bunch!

Sorry to make you think I'm a hit-and-run freeloader. My 'netiquette' is sadly lacking.
Thanks for doing what you do, really, it's been educational.
