One of the most innovative and wide-ranging multi-instrumentalists in British music, Scots born Ron Geesin first came to my attention via his excellent 1970 collaboration with Roger Waters MUSIC FROM "THE BODY" (Harvest SHSP 4008) after which I learned that he was also a key player in Pink Floyd's opus Atom Heart Mother. Ron also did a series of synthesizer based albums for the KPM library label, of which ELECTROSOUND (KPM 1102) is quite extraordinary for 1972, hinting at works by Asmus Tietchens a decade later. But, it's his explorative solo work for which he's listed here, especially so the wide-ranging AS HE STANDS (RON 28) from 1973, with it's unique mixture of poetry, weird comments, bizarre instrumentals and innovative electronics, and the even more engaging RIGHT THROUGH (RON 323) from 1977, which is so remarkably constructed that it's mind-boggling even today!

from 50 Years Of Electronic Innovation In Music, Part 2: F-K by Alan Freeman in AUDION #52 (2006).
