"A new collection of electroacoustic adventures from the Birmingham scene. Sargasso presents an unprecedented collection of sound explorations from the studios of Jonty Harrison's BEAST (Birmingham ElectroAcoustic Sound Theatre). All composers come from a diversity of musical backgrounds and have in common their passion for sonic metamorphoses. Their time spent in the BEAST studios has allowed them to experiment with sound objects and textures to create personal universes where anything is possible. All compositions on this CD were created in the Electroacoustic Music Studios at the University of Birmingham. Founded in 1982 at Birmingham University by composer Jonty Harrison, BEAST is dedicated to the public presentation of electroacoustic music through the use of multi-channel sound systems. Throughout the years BEAST has established itself as one of the world centres for the creation of electroacoustic music. A diverse choice of composers, including and compositional styles testify of the richness and excitement of pure sound. The best of BEAST."
