TRACE is a limited edition collection of two-minute pieces by international sound artists, experimental composers, noise makers and other audio creators. Each artist has produced an original recording of two-minutes duration for the CD on the theme of TRACE. The artists on TRACE range from well known world figures, to individuals and groups making their first works in this field.
Trace was produced to coincide with the Liverpool Biennial of Contemporary Art 1999.
