From the luminous Festival of Microtonal Music, six very different and unusual pieces, all well outside the general run of electronic music, and all, of course, specifically employing alternative tuning systems (15 tone, 31 tone, 72 tone, 8th tones, quartertones). Wendy Carlos and Joel Mandelbaum use rhythm and melody to contextualise their tunings, Carlos adding a small ensemble of instruments and voices to her electronics; Mandelbaum's piece is performed live on a Yamaha Synthesiser to great effect; the Stefanou and Lauten pieces are both emotive and spooky - Stefanou's her only recording, Lauten's performed with live bass flute and the composer on keyboard and vocalising. Pehrson adds live trombone to tape and the Glazier uses sampled and re-pitched instruments. An excellent collection.
