Master tape of album prepared, using Dolby process, at 1750 Arch Studios, Berkeley, California

"The music on this album exhibits an exciting, wide-open, free-wheeling approach to the medium of electronic music which has come to be typical of this genre in the late 1970`s. No longer are composers obsessively concerned with the agonizing, expressionistic, and purely "electronic" (synthesized) sound formulas which marked much of this music composed between the mid-Fifties and the late-Sixties. Instead, today we have composers willing to mix media and sonic materials in thoroughly inventive ways to achieve ends which are new-sounding, and often more engaging, than that of the "academic" avantgarde."
(Excerpt of the sleeve notes by Charles Amirkhanian)

Insert enclosed: Complete biographical and program notes for each composer and piece, with photographs of the composers.
