Notes

This set reissues the 6-LP box set from 1984 and was mastered off the original archive tapes.
Discs are packaged in plain white sleeves inside a printed, letter-pressed and embossed box along with an insert and 12-page booklet.

From the text:
"Tektra (1980-82) is a cybernetic project, an electro-acoustic composition... The word Tektra, like the music, was derived from a series of processes which Kayn applied to the alphabet. It is a synthetic word, the total of the first letters of the separate parts..."

Realisation: Institute of Sonology, University of Utrecht, Holland.

Roland Kayn's Tektra is as good or better than the electro-acoustic music of Iannis Xenakis. In other words, it's the best of the best.
