SOFT MACHINE: Spaced
This is the music recorded by the (Wyatt/Hopper/Ratledge) Soft Machine in 1969, consisting of specially recorded and subsequently manipulated (looped, mostly) material, made for a multimedia show at the Roundhouse. Shades of 'Third' are unmistakable, but more tapeworked than performed pieces (except for a long, treated improvisation (tk 4) and the mighty odd tk 6. Still fresh (sometimes downright prescient) and, of course, an important document recovered.
