certain labels in South America could still have some available analogic
cassettes and LPs. One of them is TACUABE, based in Montevideo, the
capital city of Uruguay. TACUABE launched a LP series called "Nueva
Musica Latinoamericana" featuring historical electroacoustic pieces
such as "La Panaderia" by Eduardo Kusnir, "El Gloton de Pepperland"
by Ariel Martinez, "Homenaje a la flecha clavada en el pecho de Don
Juan Diaz de Solis" by Coriun Aharonian, etc, etc.

A label in Argentina that had some important electroacoustic
titles in LPs and cassettes is IRCO Records, although they are more recent.
IRCO launched in 1988 the important cassette "Musica Electroacustica en Tiempo
Real" by Ricardo Dal Farra, of an
impressive international success (it was reviewed in Computer
Music Journal). The Web site of IRCO Records is as follows:
