"Hugh Davies was one of the masters of contemporary experimental music. His tireless search for musical invention and his historical accuracy led him to explore different fields in music. This one is a selection of his lesser known electronic pieces, that he choose to represent his own approach to the matter. Now that he's no longer with us, this collection remains as an outstanding picture of his creativity in music." "When I began my musical career in the mid-1960s I thought of myself as a composer with a strong interest in what was then known as electronic music, especially live electronic music. My early work with live electronics soon led me to what has become the main focus of my creative activities, inventing and performing on new, usually amplified instruments. This album contains my most substantial compositions in the medium, for pre-recorded tape or CD. The original versions of four of these five electronic compositions had a theatrical connection." -- Hugh Davies. Sixteen-page booklet with liner notes by Hugh Davies and David Toop. (label info)
