This is a comp I believe of tracks from three early cassettes 1979/80/81. The music here is meditative, placid, serene somewhere musically in the Deuter/Iasos realms when he's not over hyped on guitar strums. Edward is primarily a flutist and he accompanies himself on minimally played electric piano and synths. Some of the tracks have a chamber feel with oboe but the music is very much focused on the inner realms. Its a shame the full length albums where never released on cd and her ein 2018 I find this release becoming an oddity the hipster DIY electronic music community might dig!
