Interesting compilation with material quality ranged from brilliant to mediocre (in my opinion).
Most of the disk 1 tracks are extracts from longer pieces by various electro-acoustic composers, Robert Normandeau's Tangram being one of the highlights here.
Very interesting material also comes from Darren Copeland, Stuart Dempster, Aloof Proof etc.
One of the best things about this compilation is: through it you will be introduced to many very important names in the world of ambient, electro-acoustic and experimental music. Do not stop there.
