Notes

Liner Notes:
A concerto is conventionally for one soloist plus orchestra. Bartok’s "Concerto for Orchestra" introduced the concept of various musicians performing as soloists as well as being the orchestra. In the concerto, the synthesizer, a solo instrument, now also creates its own ensemble since I build it a sixteen track tape recorder for company.

The Kaleidophon Synthesizer includes a couple of VCS 3’s, but is basically a console of electronic modules I’ve designed since "White Noise I" to bring to life all the sounds I imagined. It even composed and created (near the end of the second movement) its own music in a few minutes of mechanical madness.

Has anyone noticed that the first few minutes of side one seem to be based on the introductory theme from Battiato's FETUS ?
