"... long in the works, here’s a replica of oskar sala’s 1970 “debut” album (actually ; he did make his recorded debut on the 1961 “electronics • five improvisations on magnetic tape” lp alongside remi gassmann’s score to a george balanchine ballet production ... but this is first full-length recording of his work) ; a selected sound library show-casing (-boating ?) his “electronic virtuosity”, intended for “radio television film advertising backgrounds” ...

... in some ways the early-electronic equivalent of a steve vai record (in many others ... absolutely nothing like one) the two side-length pieces here consist of extremely deft, multi-tracked performances of trautwein & sala’s trautonium, expertly controlled by sala & sent packing through all manner of “tape studio” effects (the gnarly sproing of reverb & chatty ring modulation timbres are a treat) ... the b-side’s addition of “electronic percussion” only serves to add an extra exotic layer of low, thudding energies & beautifully flitting crackling trills ..."
