"A special CD to celebrate Lawrence Casserley's 60th birthday and a follow-up to Sargasso's 1999 release Labyrinths. Using his self-designed computer processing instruments, Casserley has chosen in The Edge of Chaos to transform the sounds of metal percussion, gongs, cymbals beyond recognition, to creating intricate 'clouds' of sonic morphing. The inspiration for these pieces comes from the works of painter Antoni Tapies and writer Jorge Luis Borges. Performer, composer and improviser Lawrence Casserley has been working with electronic sound since 1967, with a particular emphasis on live performance. Much of his work has crossed media boundaries, particularly with his multi-media group 'Hydra', and Peter Donebauer's 'Video and Music Performers' in the 1970s; 'Tube Sculpture' and the 'Electroacoustic Cabaret' in the 1980s. Over the years, Casserley and his ground-breaking live sound-processing set-up has performed and recorded with many of the leading European improvisers, including his close collaborator Evan Parker (Drawn Inwards with Evan Parker's Electroacoustic Ensemble on ECM, and Solar Winds on Touch). This new CD confirms Casserley as one of UK's most exciting live electronics artist."
