P4UL B0WLES - THE P00L K III (2013)

To date, our Paul Bowles post remains the the highest visited page at OWOD. In honor of all you fans, we are pleased to present POOLK3--perhaps the strangest recording in the writer/composer's oeuvre. Although this rare ambient/musique concrète recording was originally mis-attributed to Brion Gysin (and even released under his name), the work has been established as a late 1950s experiment best quoted with reference to Bowles' own autobiography: "a realm of sound that creates a dreamlike journey without a clear point of origin or destination—a sojourn to be experienced in its entirety, without stopping."
