Notes

6 CDs + DVD + 48-page booklet + 4 postcards +2 buttons.
Each disc in separate ecopack sleeve.
All collected in 30.5 x 14.5 x 2.5 cm box.

• Disc one:
- tracks 1-10: Realization V/82 to X/83 (using recordings from VII/80 to IX/83). Final edition: XI/83. Released I/84 as LP Selektion SLP 003.
- tracks 11-13: Realization early 1982. Released 1982 on the LP 'Masse Mensch' (Various Artists, Selektion SLP 001).

• Disc two:
- tracks 1-10: Assemblage of transformed and (re)structured sound material. Recorded XII/82 to XI/84, released I/85 as LP (Selektion SLP 005).
- tracks 11-12: Unfinished drafts for the Distant Structures project. Released for the first time as bonus 7" - Disdrafts for subscribers of the Wahrnehmungen 3-LP-box-set (VOD 18, 2005).

• Disc three:
- Tracks 1-9: Realization 1985. Released III/86 as DLP (Selektion SLP 011). Collaborative project between P16.D4 and S.B.O.T.H.I. Side B from the original double LP and track 2 from side D have not been included as they are by S.B.O.T.H.I., not by P16.D4.
- Track 10: Recording live, Köln, 1991. Unreleased. Restructured from rotten tape 2012.

• Disc Four:
- Tracks 1-15: Realization 1986, compiling tracks which had appeared on international compilation projects from 1982 to 1985. Final edition: X/86. Released II/87 as LP (Selektion SLP 013).
- Tracks 16-19: Realization 1987-1991. Tracks 17-19 had been added to the first CD reissue (Sonoris 1997). For this release one more bonus track (16 - unreleased so far) has been included. The order of the last three tracks is given wrong on the cover. The correct order is given here.

• Disc five:
Released III/89 as CD (Selektion SCD 002).
- Section 1: All tracks fo this section are based on material recorded in 1981 which was treated and recomposed in 1987. The idea was to work with early rock recordings in a non-nostalgic way analyzing the relations between actual and early-80's approaches.
- Section 2 consists of compositions featured on the Capture Music Festival, February 1987. Since the performance was denominated by confrontation and combination of acoustic and optic elements, the tracks were rearranged as "pure acoustic" features.
- Section 3: Whilst the tracks of the other 3 sections are composed with studio techniques these are improvised direct to tape.

• Disc six:
All three projects were recorded 1987 and released as part of LPs which also contained other groups works: 'Bruitiste' was released in 1988 on the DLP 'Bruitiste' (RRRecords RRR 023), 'Captured Music' in 1989 on the LP 'Captured Music (Selektion SLP 019), 'Fifty' in 1990 on the LP 'Fifty' (RRRecords RRR 050).
'Bruitiste' was done by non-P16.D4 members of Selektion (an organization of artists and musicians, related to P16.D4 since 1984) in an attempt to create P16D4 style music, 'Captured Music' uses non-P16.D4 sound material organized by P16.D4 (the basic material consists of live recordings by Hafler Trio, Nicolas Collins, Christian Marclay, Elliott Sharp, Asmus Tietchens, S.B.O.T.H.I., Psychic Television and Nachtluft), 'Fifty' has P16.D4 sound material organized by Masami Akita (Merzbow).

• DVD:
- Tracks 1-9: The 9 films presented here are extracts from the visual material shown during P16.D4's performance at the Captured Music Festival, Karlsruhe 1987. The audiomaterial of the concert were of rather low sound quality, so the the soundtracks for the DVD have been put together from other sources from RLW's archive, related to the festival.
- Tracks 10-13: In the years 1994-1997 Markus Caspers revisited his archive of P16.D4 related footage. The plan of releasing a posthumous "P16.D4 video" never was brought to an end. For this DVD three of his films creating images for - already existing - P16.D4 pieces (films 10, 12, 13) plus one documentation of a spontaneous improvisation during a meeting to prepare the group's performance at the Captured Music Festival (11) have been chosen.
