From the liner notes: "(...) Please, try to imagine a score sounding by itself without a conductor, an orchestra even without musical instruments. This magic is possible by using the musical synthesizer, ANS. ANS is an instrument with which a composer can not only create but even draw his music without notes and orchestra. A Soviet scientist Evgeny Murzin spent about 20 years creating this apparatus which can join together three processes: music creation, recording and performing.

180 gr with enough crackles to spoil the ambience. It is not that bad, but if they reissue such music, they better do it right. For us consumers, it remains the originals or a cd/digital alternative. Label’s reviews reveal the rest. But the packaging remains good and contains translation in English, that i do not know if the originals did.
