One of the 20th century's most sublime pieces of music for piano, The Book of Sounds by German composer Hans Otte (1926-2007), is available again on audiophile 2xLP vinyl. Licensed from Kuckuck, this edition includes a 12-page full-color booklet with contemporary liner note contributions by Terry Riley, Dustin O'Halloran, and Otte’s biographer Ingo Ahmels, as well as a 1982 Village Voice live review and photos courtesy of his daughter Silvia. Remastered by Rafael Anton Irisarri at Black Knoll.

"This work, a masterpiece of restraint, reflects the musical imagination of someone who has spent long periods in the quiet recesses of the mind." - Terry Riley
