Notes

Introduction to and survey of electronic music.
All work realised on the Moog Series III Synthesizer.
Excluding A1 and D10, each section is broken down into various examples.
Released with a 16-page book which includes the musical score of the A1 track : Peace Three

- Notes to the track titles-
Some tracks are represented by graphical symbols that are not reproducible in unicode, especially the following:

B3d: 'L2' is encircled.
B4c: '2L', '2N', '2V', '2S' are all encircled
B6a to B6d are preceded with a drawn line, all in a different shape
C3d and C4c: 'L2' is encircled
C6a is preceded by a drawn shaped line
C6b is preceded by drawn angles
C6c is approximated, but the inverted chevrons all show a different angle.
C9: 'L2' is encircled.
D7a and D7b are represented by drawn lines, slightly tilting.
D7c and D7d are represented by drawn lines with a slight anglearound the middle.
