February 4, 2013 Update: Dear Pogus customers... to follow up on the US Postal Service postage rate increases - which hits international customers - it is particularly bad for those who purchase only one cd - now $9.40 as opposed to in the past of $5.40...
we have had to pass these costs along to the consumer - sorry - prices do get better if you purchase more than one CD so i do urge you to look at that..our apologies for this...
Important Shipping Information as of 1/29/13: Dear Pogus customers ... i just came back from the post office and the rude shock of finding out that the international postal rate here has just about doubled..is going to effect shipping costs...Pogus has tried to keep it reasonable - but the cost of shipping one cd for instance has jumped from around $5 to over $9 !!!! So prices for shipping will rise..sorry...
As the year ends some bits of Pogus news...Frances White's Library of Dreams was voted into Wire magazine's Top 10 classical releases for 2012 - great...and folks have been listening to and digging Tensions at the Vanguard on Soundcloud - thanks (now if we could sell a few more copies...). Upcoming early in 2013 we should have Drums and Drones a cd/dvd release by Brian Chase (drummer for the Yeah Yeah Yeah's), plus a 3 cd set (for the price of 2) by Cambridge, MA based electronic music composer Lou Cohen - for more about him there is a great interview with him here - http://www.allaboutjazz.com/php/article.php?id=43265. And we will be releasing another cd of works by Brazilian Jorge Antunes....plus more things down the line...stay tuned and happy holidays to all
This new Pogus 2 CD compilation, Tensions At The Vanguard, curated by Luis Alvarado (writer, journalist, sound poet), presents some of the most important pieces of the Peruvian musical vanguard of the 1960?s and 70?s, offering a representative sample of works and composers from this important period in Peruvian music. This release also includes a 24-page booklet - in both Spanish and English - with an essay giving an overview of the works, the composers, and a brief musical and social history of Peru during this time.
We are also trying something new here as well. This release can be listened to (mp3 version) on Soundcloud- soundcloud.com/pogus. So if you want to give a listen, go ahead.
And of course I would be remiss not to invite you to listen to some If, Bwana things: not on Pogus..but what the hell. These are works from 2010 and 2012 in Topolo, Italy: archive.org/details/oz062
