Gallery and Academic Specialist Art Recordings

The Gallery and Academic Specialist Art Recordings (GASAR) website is part of the RIO, Electroacoustic, Contemporary, Sound Art Music group, which is dedicated to distribution of very specific music as detailed in their F.A.Q section.

The detailed collection of music and sound work has an almost museum-like quality, which is reflected in the synopsis which accompanies each entry like this example of plunderphonics.

The GASAR is one merchant which stocks a lot of soundscape work, but not all of the soundscapes stocked are part of an acoustic ecology research project.

Some composers which appear on this distribution label are: Annea Lockwood, David Dunn, Hildegard Westerkamp, John Levack Drever, and Peter Cusack.
