1997 release, restocked. Features 2 long tracks (63 total minutes) of early, emotionally stunning electronic music from Ms. Oliveros. "Her revolutionary work in the use of tape delay and heterodyne techniques, coupled with experimental use of combination tones and supersonic frequencies, presaged techniques now being explored digitally," and there's never been better evidence of it than the brain-eclipsing "Alien Bog" -- a masterpiece of electronic tone squelch. Only an excerpt of this has been previously issued, while "Beautiful Soop" is released for the first time. "During her first year at The Tape Music Center at Mills College in Oakland, CA, Pauline Oliveros completed 'Beautiful Soop' (1966) and 'Alien Bog' (1967) utilizing the original Buchla Box 100 series created for the Tape Music Center by Don Buchla and her tape delay system. 'I was deeply impressed by the sounds from the frog pond outside the studio window at Mills. I loved the accompaniment as I worked on my pieces. Though I never recorded the frogs, I was of course deeply influenced by their music."
