  Process music - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Process music or systems music is music which arises from a process, and more specifically, music which makes that process audible.
Michael Nyman has described how the generally minimalistic tonal music associated with process music arose from the influence of and reaction against process based music of extreme determinism or indeterminism using serial, aleatoric, and stochastic methods.
Within the field of popular music, process music made its strongest early appearance in the ambient works of Brian Eno, notably his first foray into the genre, Discreet Music.

 The Nation, 04/15/1968 - Music by Boretz, Benjamin
...Therefore, if the current "specialization" of "serious" composition into the public's music on the one hand, and the musician's music on the other, removes that public frustration, it might also remove the public's resentment at the failure of the "other" kind' of composer to produce a consumable commodity...
...Of course, new musical contexts cannot toe created in this way, since it is the familiarity of the juxtaposed elements that is crucial to their usefulness in this medium...
...That this should be the public's "modern" music is wholly understandable: its first-performance availability, its "romantic" posture, its perpetual variety, mixed-media or otherwise, and.its overt renunciation of conceptual or perpetual complexity commend it to popular favor...

Yes, this is the theme music you will be thinking of everytime you see McQueen up on the silver screen.

Otherwise, the recording group is talented, but the recordings are fairly lackluster, missing the zing and spark from the 1968 release, which I'd gladly rate 5 stars.

Whereas in the past the notion and knowledge about the so called revolution of 1968 had been based on the ­ undoubtedly subjective ­ recollections of former activists and contemporaries, numerous young scholars who did not personally participate in the events have recently started to focus their research on this field of inquiry.
It aims to explore the changes in the musical field that took place in the decades of the 1960s and 70s.

Like the Atlantic box this is an essential collection that serious music collectors should have and an incredible education on the roots of fl soul music.
From one stand point this music is probably very personal to those who grew up listening to it (like the Beatles for me).
But I love soul music too and to hear the grooves put out by that Stax/Volt house band puts so many others to shame for sheer quality and toughness.

 Karel Husa - Czech Contempoprary Composer
Apart from Music for Prague 1968, mention should certainly be made of his Apotheosis of This Earth, Symphonic Suite and other orchestral compositions, for string quartets, Second Sonata for Piano, Sonata for Violin and Piano, Variations for Violin, Viola, Violoncello and Piano, as well as outstanding chamber works.
Music critics seem to agree that Karel Husa's works at both ends of this spectrum stand out due to their powerful and immediate effect on audiences.
This delight in music making and listening also seems to permeate all his compositions in one way or another, starting with his very first opus, Sonatina for Piano, written in the mid-1940s, and ending with his recent major works.

The use of a good gutsy horn section to punctuate vocal chorus's also really pushed the music out there and the fact that Geno was a damn good front man also helped more than somewhat.
