"The Village Voice said this in 1973: 'James Cuomo's Zetos... is more sensitive. By this time a great variety of colors could be programmed, and this short piece has some lovely splashes of notes. Less was left to chance here, and the material and its sequence all make normal musical sense. In 'The Computer and Music', Columbia University Press 1972, is found: Zetos 2,...,2* based on the jazz blues form, consists of twelve 12-measure choruses. Probability changes are substituted for harmonic changes. Parameters so controlled include rhythm, octave choices, timbre, density, and instrumentation. The tape part was written to conform with the instrumental parts, and was prepared with the ILLIAC II system. Early 60's recording of pure Jazz (Bebop) with massive electronics composed on a huge computer, music concrete, from the mastermind of Spoils Of War & Mormos. Real swinging but scary'."
