Third and last in a series (the others are similarly highly recommended), this is another purely electronic, but very substantial CD of modern electronic music that embodies the aesthetic rigour and satisfying integrity of the best of early computer music.

Indeed the (excellent) booklet notes claim that all the source sounds here (played by a quartet of Rothkamms) were produced on a Yamaha FB01 sound generator 'previously owned by Buck Dharma of the Blue Oyster Cult and purchased on ebay for $26.'.

Microtonal the CD 'ends with the pre-established harmony of ... 768 notes per octave scale.

A gem. Limited Edition of 500.
