"The works on this CD are not plain homage, nor are they sampled from the original. They are rather a survey of the current state of electronic/electroacoustic music that exists half outside the academic life. The composers, musicians and artists on this CD are interested in locating themselves within their own history by further exploring the topics of sound spatialization and/or use of the human voice with electronics, or they undertake a transformation of the original concept towards a personal approach to the sound, or to the original's biblical words."
