Notes

The material is out takes and reiterations from 2 LP records, "Improvised" (Music Gallery Editions 12), and "Moose And Salmon" (Music Gallery Editions 30). There are some technical problems with over modulating, print thru, and, in the case of the trio tracks and TK 24/02/79, modulation of hum by DBX coding. For the record Moose And Salmon this latter problem was somewhat alleviated by notch filtering and compression, but at the cost of regeneration noise compounded with a low level signal on disc, necessitated by cutting long sides.

Tracks from the Moose And Salmon sessions are coded with letters A-L (12 takes 24, 25 Feb 1979) and sub numbered 0-25 indicating the initial minute of the selection within the take. Each instrument was recorded stereo onto 6 tracks of a Teac 80-8. Mixdown to 2 track stereo by HK & JO.

On this program the selection HK is an excerpt from a longer solo as is the dual horn solo that follows it. Ice Death is HK x 5, California early 1978, and JO (Calgary) is from a session for "Improvised" 23 Jan 78.

This tape is copied directly from the 15 IPS 2 track 1/4 inch master tapes.
