The follow up to Light In The Attics game-changing I Am The Center box set is finally here. The Microcosm: Visionary Music Of Continental Europe, 1970-1986 is the first major overview of key works from cosmically-taped in artists needing little introduction - Vangelis, Ash Ra Tempel, and Popol Vuh - and unknown masterpieces by criminally overlooked heroes like Bernard Xolotl, Robert Julian Horky and Enno Velthuys.

The Microcosm is a companion of sorts to I Am the Center, Light in the Attic's monumental 2013 collection of private press new age recordings from America. This time out, the compilers focus on works by European composers, subtitling the compilation Visionary Music of Continental Europe, 1970-1986, carefully avoiding the new age tag as some of these artists have no interest in being associated with it.

Nominally, The Microcosm is a European sequel to I Am the Center: Private Issue New Age Music in America, 1950-1990, a heavyweight compilation of American new age music curated by Douglas Mcgowan of the California-based Yoga Records and released on Light in the Attic in 2013.

Reseñas del Various - (The Microcosm) Visionary Music Of Continental Europe, 1970-1986 (1):
spark
A fantastic collection of music and--being a LITA release--the presentation/packaging is A+. However, my copy has a lot of surface noise and pops...particularly noticeable on A2. This is especially disappointing given the style of music and wholly unexpected from LITA. Honestly, this release may be better suited for CD listening. 5 stars for the music, but only 2 stars for the pressing quality.
Giving it it’s first playing & I have to agree with you... LOTS of pops & surface noise..
misterdimond This explanation (colored vinyl = prone to skipping/surface noise) is perplexing to me and IMO may be over-simplifying the issue, since I have plenty of colored vinyl that sounds excellent and black vinyl that sounds awful. I'm always hearing people say white vinyl is the worst for this, but I have numerous albums on white vinyl that play without a problem. That said, can you--or anyone who reads this--explain why colored vinyl sounds poor on some releases but great on others? This is a guide provided by a record pressing plant for prospective musicians/labels wishing to press their records and what to expect from different colored vinyl:SCALE OF COLOR VINYL SOUND QUALITY CHARACTERISTICS:*(Surface noise 1= quietest / 8 = noisiest)1. GGR Black vinyl4. Transparent Colors (Blue, Green, Clear, Gold [orange], Transparent Red, Coke Clear, Fluorescent Colors)6. Non-Mixed Opaque Colors (Pink, Red, Yellow, Violet, Brown)7. White7. Opaque Mix (Mixing opaque and translucent color(s) in particular; and also tend to have visible “staining” after a few hundred records, which can be seen in certain light).7-8. Random Color / Recycled Color Shades8. Hand-made variants8-10. Glow In The Dark / Glitter Records* Every record runs differently, and generally speaking, the louder the recording the less noticeable any “plastic noise” will be. Turntables also can track color vinyl differently than black — some people report skips on color copies which do not happen on the same record if pressed on black vinyl (typically on lower-end turntables -especially those which have plastic tone arms and/or lack tracking adjustment mechanisms. Such turntables can actually be problematic on both black and color vinyl records). Some people say the music itself can sound slightly different on color versions vs black versions of the same record (since the grooves are the same, this likely has more to do with the turntable/cartridge being used, rather than the plastic).No doubt, you will find many competing theories on the subject of color vinyl sound quality. The information on this page is based solely upon our experience running the various colors which are readily available in the USA today. From our experience, the main reason colors can run differently (and sound different) is due to the melt characteristics of the vinyl itself — it has nothing to do with the actual color pigments, but instead, the PVC formulations. (i.e., the color pigments themselves do not have sound characteristics — it is true that black vinyl has the black added into the PVC to give it the black look; however, the composition of the black PVC formula that we use runs much differently than the PVC formula which appears white). Different PVC formulations can have dramatically different melting results at various extruder, nozzle, and mold temperature settings – each leading to different molding results when the records are being pressed. Also, we find that the size of the biscuit can have a dramatically different result with different PVC formulations (which is why, for sound quality consistency, we do not offer 180 gram records in any color other than audiophile black vinyl).In any case, there are tons color records in the U.S. marketplace, and many people do not seem to notice/mind the differences. But, we try to be as transparent as possible sharing information to help you make the best decision for your project. If your utmost concern is a very quiet pressing, then you are probably better off pressing black vinyl.Source:https://www.gottagrooverecords.com/vinyl-colors/
Quality control and care most likely. Colored vinyl is stickier than black vinyl which makes it prone to flaws, but plenty of manufacturers press colored vinyl that sounds great, and LITA usually does a great job. I haven't played all the LPs in my copy yet, but the ones I've played sound great so far, so maybe its copy by copy. If ones is really very bad I'm sure LITA would reconcile it in some way, I've had issues with products before and they've been more than happy to fix the problem for me.
I cannot for sure explain but I can offer a similar situation that may help you understand. There is a split 2 color record I own, where exactly 1/2 of the record is red and the other is blue. I noticed there was a constant but small "pop" that would happen every 1/2 second or so. That "pop" exactly correlated with the needle crossing between the red and the blue colors. My guess is that if the record is not entirely one color, the "pops" will be present and depending on how many colors and how complex the pattern is, they may appear as surface noise. This release has a smoky color to it so it's a gradient of one color to the next so it might be the cause of the surface noise. As for the pops, I believe it might be that the colored vinyl is harder to check for defects at the factory, with white vinyl being near impossible. Paired with the material not being as consistent as a black vinyl, you will likely get pops. This is just an explanation that makes the most sense to me.
This explanation (colored vinyl = prone to skipping/surface noise) is perplexing to me and IMO may be over-simplifying the issue, since I have plenty of colored vinyl that sounds excellent and black vinyl that sounds awful. I'm always hearing people say white vinyl is the worst for this, but I have numerous albums on white vinyl that play without a problem. That said, can you--or anyone who reads this--explain why colored vinyl sounds poor on some releases but great on others?
I also have the exact same issue on the exact same track. I doubt it has anything to do with the fact that it is on vinyl, more of the fact that it is on COLORED vinyl, which is more prone to skipping and surface noise.
