Featuring works from the following composers: Aphex Twin, Conlon Nancarrow, John Cage, Steve Reich, Squarepusher, Karlheinz Stockhausen, Edgard Varèse, György Ligeti! "Born at the Royal Festival on March 10th 2003, the London Sinfonietta/Warp concerts grew out of a shared desire to explore the connection between the electronic experimenters on the Warp label and the avant-garde 20th century pioneers who were their sonic grandfathers, at least on one side. New instrumental versions of Squarepusher and Aphex Twin tracks sit side by side with avant-garde classics. There is no crossover -- it's the unexpected juxtaposition, in the belief that the different kinds of music shed light on each other. The relationship between human musicians and machines, both electronic and mechanical, provides a kind of idee fixe which runs through this collection of music, recorded live from packed concert halls around the United Kingdom."
