|1||Hymn Of Taurus (Taurus Is Calling You)||3:00|
|3||Saucers Over Montreux||4:40|
Hymn Of Taurus: The rhythm track was created with my very first primitive ring modulator (4 diodes and 2 transformers) – that is why it is so dirty… The voice went of course through the EMS vocoder, the choir was created through the VAKO Orchestron.
Saucers Over Montreux: Improvisation, recorded live on July 24th, 1977, at the Jazz festival in Montreux – under the hot shining sun on the hot terrace, the ARP 2600 produced unusual and unique sounds… The improvised melody is played with the Lyricon.
Saxellite: Live recording during a Thearena concert in Zurich on March 15th, 1978: a saxophone improvisation with of EMS Pitch-to-Voltage Converter and the EMS the random generator as well as the EMS VCS-3.
Space Cantata: Here again the choir comes of course again from the VAKO Orchestron (a kind Mellotron with transparent discs). The solo is played (like most other solos) with the Lyricon I. „Close Encounters of the Third Kind“ gave me the idea for the song.
Quiet High: The theme actually originates from a film sound track, which I wrote for a horn quartet in 1967.
Cosmotoxology: The primal tape comes from the (improvised) tapes which I had already recorded with Ondes Martenot and „Live Looping“ (with 2 Revox reel-to-reel machines) in 1970. I only somewhat shortened it.
By the way, the Cover of “Voice Of Taurus” was painted by graphic designer and drummer of the legendary act “Les Sauterelles” Düde Dürst. The digital update for the CD is provided by Stephane Biabiany.
