"Renè Bertholo, born 1935, is most known as plastic artist and co-founder of the KWY group in the late fifties with Christo and Jon Voss. His interest for electronics began when he started to make objects with electric movement, called 'small-scale models' which used electric devices producing aleatory noises, and which he made between 1963 and 1973. 'In 1973, when tired of repairs I had decided to give up making them, a friend gave me one of those musical boxes with a handle, a drum bristling with prickles and a steel comb. Although I had seen similar ones, that particular one fascinated me and I had an urge to make one like it, but using electronics'. Renè Bertholo started then building and programming himself a digital machine for making sounds. Since then he destroyed and rebuilt the machine several times, he even named her Alice, now he calls her just 'maK'. This CD covers all twenty years of his sound production and it was recorded directly from the machine. At last."
