For the last 40 years the Logos Foundation in Gent has featured, produced and supported a vast programme of experimental music. One of its most distinctive projects is the massive robot orchestra - a huge and growing array of invented instruments - all of them Goldbegeresque physical constructions that produce internally generated acoustic sound, programmed and played through computer driven mechanical processes... Here they have been programmed to play a broad concert of Baroque music, accompanied sometimes by a few humans (recorder, violin, tenor, viola da gamba). Works include pieces by Monteverdi, Dufay, Couperin, Purcell, Handel, Ortiz, Marais, Anon &c. A fascinating and successful CD and a pleasure to listen to, if you like Baroque - whose forms and formalisms suit perfectly these sounds and this kind of formal precision.L
