In January of 2011, Dominique Balaÿ of webSYNradio asked me to make a playlist from the incredible online sound archives of UBUWEB. What I have chosen does not work as a running radio show but is a recommendation of important sound documents that should be listened to in your own time. The artists have been listed alphabetically. Many of these pieces are quite lengthy, and will require commitment. Tracks that are 3 minutes or so are listed in BOLD and can be more easily digested. John Zorn
Une version resserrée de cet ESSENTIAL UBU a été reprise sur UBUweb sous forme du Top Ten de mars 2011.
