Imagine all the music of a single composer "exploded" into constituent parts which are then reassembled into new works. Some of these parts could be more or less intact and recognizable, some could be stretched, reversed, pitch-changed and filtered into a vastly unfamiliar "topography" - like a look at the secret world of insects or coral through a microscope. Since musical elements whose first appearance was in different recordings and different compositions, made years apart, are now heard simultaneously in the same texture, this is a "vertical" collection of works - in contrast to the conventional "horizontal" collection of selected tracks from previous recordings. These pieces - originally intended as sketches for larger forms - were imaginatively assembled by Peter Freeman under the guidance of Jon Hassel, whose "Fourth World" music is the exclusive source of all the sounds.

yes, in my opinion 'burryscurry1' is correct. this is a very nice "re-imagining" of some of hassell's tracks. the terrible part is that they're so short, but most of them are excellent. one of the hassell albums that i play the most often.

Finally obtained a copy. You MUST hear this recording of Atmospherics. Simply Brilliant.
