"flawed existence
all these tracks date from the early to mid eighties, at that time we were in the midst of the d.i.y cassette revolution. during that period everybody and their dog were compiling "international" tape compilations which, if you were luckily and took part in one of these endeavours may have gone on to sell 20 copies and you, for your trouble would receive a copy. well, in the eighties i didn't get out too much so i contributed to 15 or 20 of these international compilations, mostly i supplied a mix of whatever it was that i was working on at the time. thinking these pieces were destined to oblivion... until frank maier came along. other material here included some rather dodgy live events that i suppose at best could be thought as of slight historical value. more interesting is "destroyed piano" from 1983 recorded at i.p.s. studio, london just after completing "homotopy to marie". i always liked these but until now they never found a home. most flawed existence was remastered from cassette.
i would like to thank matt waldron for all his painstaking work in bringing the sound quality up to frank maier for his endless enthusiasm.
