Lovely set of tape-music by composer Jack Tamul, issued in 1980 by Spectrum (not the Wergo sub-label, but the same Bear Mountain-area powerhouse that released William Hoskins’ “Galactic Fantasy” & William Strickland’s “An Electronic Visit to the Zoo” the year prior) “recorded at the Jacksonville Museum of Arts & Sciences."

Starting with a series of pieces incorporating acoustic materials (“Genesis” is a choir piece peppered with synthesizer & tape-manipulation ; “Lament for Gettysburg” is purelychoral ; “Canon Cancrizans” is a pure tape-work utilizing accordion sounds) the pieces progress towards the fully-electronic, with a trilogy of fine synth-based constructs (the sleeve lists the gear used in exacting detail :: Prophet five, Arp 2600, Moog satellite ... and a bevy of “modifiers and miscellany”) offering a range of motifs from “Fantasia” ‘s eerily prescient synth-drones (seriously, if someone played me this claiming it to be a new Spectrum Spools release, i’d believe it wholesale) to “Mogul” ‘s rather Dockstader-esque constructs, to “Wave Rhapsody” ‘s woozy slow oscillations.
