[202.1] U. R. A WALRUS?

Electric Walrus is "a record label based out of Needham, MA and New Haven, CT, existing for the purpose of releasing music by Alex Temple and related artists. The focus is experimental electronics, avant-rock, genre-bending contemporary 'classical,' etc., but don't hold me to that," says its leading protagonist. The site contains sound samples, details of existing and upcoming projects, and so on.

Temple's newest release is 'Agape Ludens', which he describes as "computer music that draws from noise, avant-rock, classic tape music, industrial, free jazz and contemporary composition." The albums are put outs as CDRs, but with professional packaging -- similar to Burning Shed's approach. Very worthwhile.
