Basta Music


In 1998, the The complete tape music of Dick Raaijmakers was published by Stichting Donemus under the label NEAR (Dutch electro-acoustic repertoire). This large and ambitious project was joined by another CD-box, The complete tape music of Jan Boerman (CV-NEAR 4/5/6/7/8), both elaborately documented and carefully edited by René Uijlenhoet in close collaboration with the composers. 

The CD series continued with a 6 CD-box with electroacousic music of Ton Bruynèl, Looking Ears complete (CV-NEAR 12), and CDs with compositions of Kees Tazelaar (CV-NEAR 13) and René Uijlenhoet (CV-NEAR 14).
