"Last year the 50th anniversary of the Experimental Studio Bratislava (Exs) in Slovakia was crowned with the first ever release of their music production: the LP Ina Hudba - sold almost within immediately after the release. Now the following Series 2: Nova Generacia presents the second generation of experimental and Musique Concrete composers from Slovakia and concentrates mostly on works from the 80's. These milestone recordings with an unmeasurable historical value have never been released in any format ever and it is only the second time that avant-garde and electronic experimental Slovak composers get exposed united on one medium to the world. When in Series 1 self-made studio equipment and electronic devices was the norm for recordings made in the 60's and 70's in Bratislava, we can see now the use of Western equipment like the Studer 907 with console etc. used by the Nova Generacia in the 80's. This technical development has allowed among others new composition processes and this new equipment has as well generated new and fresh ideas - to be on the same footing as avant-garde composers on the other side of the iron curtain like Karlheinz Stockhausen, György Ligeti, Pietro Grossi etc. Sound Art found gradually its firm place in the Slovak culture. A new generation - Nova Generacia - of composers who look for new and different ways for musical expressions. All the recordings are strictly analog - recorded and produced with analog equipment only! Limited numbered edition of 500 LPs inclusive a CD that has all the tracks in full original length. Includes tracks by prize winners like Rudolf Pepucha, Robert Rudolf and Juraj Duris." (label info)
