Performed by Vincent Epplay and Samon Takahashi. "Composed in 1971. First performed at the Cheltenham Festival, 1971, the composer taking the VCS3 part and Messrs John and Robert Cary (the composer's sons) the turntables parts. Trios associates improvisation within a set of defined paramaters. Trios was played for the first time in France since its creation, at the occasion of the Sonorité Festival in Montpellier, September 2006. This record includes a notebook of 4 b/w pages with original score notes, instructions for playing, 16 VCS3 patches, and two 33RPM records on which 2x16 sound events are recorded. About the composer: Tristram Cary (1925-2008) was a pioneering English electronic composer. With Peter Zinovieff and David Cockerell he founded Electronic Music Studios (London) Ltd which created the first portable synthesizer, the VCS3 (1969) and was then involved in production of such distinctive EMS products. About the performers: Vincent Epplay is a visual and sound artist who also composed music for films. His main purpose is to create situations for listening by staging sound and interrogating its mode of distribution and reception. Samon Takahashi is a visual and sound artist based in Paris, France. His practice is devoted to visual art, sound art and music. His work is so-called 'transdisciplinary' using all types of media. His main interests or obsessions concern language, means of communication, pseudo science, architecture, isolated landscapes and classification. There is not a clear style that links his different works but a methodology, a sort of empirical logic, a common skeleton." Numbered edition of 500 copies.
