Marketing Highlights

Packaged as a 3xLP set or 2xCD with 20 page booklet, Three Willow Park: Electronic Music from Inner Space, 1961–1971 contains 62 previously unissued gems by Raymond Scott. Many feature hypnotic rhythm tracks played by Scott's Electronium — an invention which composed and performed using programmed intelligence. That Scott produced beat-oriented proto-techno before the 1970s explosion of electronic music and rhythms on the pop charts is a significant achievement that should not be overlooked.

Willow Park Center was an industrial rental complex of offices and warehouses in a Long Island suburb. Following his 1965 marital breakup, Scott set up shop at WPC. He operated a musical lab — researching, experimenting, testing, and measuring. He twirled knobs, flipped switches, and took notes. He installed equipment and machines, and used them to build new equipment and machines. This makeshift compound remained Scott's workspace and bedroom until 1971, when he decamped for L.A. to work for Berry Gordy at Motown.
