2001 release. This is the fifth CD release by Morphogenesis, and the first since 1998. Although Morphogenesis do not play live very often, it is certainly their preferred working situation, where the interaction between the space, the people present and the available equipment create a variety of different situations. Substantial extracts from nearly all of their recent concerts appear on this, and a second volume. There is also the inclusion of one studio recording per CD. Perhaps one reason for their infrequent appearances is due to the size of the group, which usually varies from between 4 to 6 people, all of whom have been working together for 10-15 years. This in itself is an unusual situation within experimental music. Another increasingly rare feature is that they have never used laptops or samplers, and although a pre-recorded CD was used on the Spitz concert, it was played through a varispeed DJ CD player. Pre-recorded analog tape is also used by manually inching the tape past the playback head. All other instrumentation (amplified objects, piano, biofeedback, water machine, percussion, etc.) is played and processed completely live. This release comes in an 8-page digipak. Volume 2 will be likewise, and the total playing time of both volumes is just under 2 1/2 hours.
