Notes

"Historic early recordings from an electronic music pioneer."

All pieces on this CD were recorded in 1959 at the Columbia-Princeton Electronic Music Center with the following exceptions:
• Track 3 was recorded in 1944 in the Middle East Radio Station of Cairo.
• Track 9 is an excerpt from a piece that Halim recorded by walking around San Marco Basilica in Venice in 1961 with a reel-to-reel tape recorder. If you listen closely you can hear his little daughter cry out "Halim!" near the end of this excerpt.
• Track 6 is an excerpt of a piece that was recorded in a New York art gallery circa 1974. This piece is a combination of manipulated audiotape and sound sculpture.
