2003 reissue. Originally released in 1982 on cassette (Aeroplane Records), Up from Zero was David Jackman's third album of compositions. Integrating tapes, loops, shortwave radio signals, guitar tones, voice, and a host of percussion elements, each piece accumulates into a complex collage of cycles that create a haunting set of "movements" and bizarre spatial relationships. These are the most sought-after of Jackman's first solo recordings. The proto-Organum sound. Also included is "Offshore" (1980). This track, recorded with the assistance of Philip Sanderson (of Storm Bugs/Snatch Tapes/Claire Thomas & Susan Vezey fame), is Jackman's earliest piece to appear on CD to date. Fluttering tones along with sustained slabs of bowed guitar create a droning crest and a fitting "outro" for these essential gems from the vault. Expertly restored from the original master tapes by Robert Hampson (of Main). Packaged in a card mini-jacket.
