Second edition of Paradigm Discs Variations compilation, originally released in 1998. Another collection of lesser-known and infrequently recorded artists living in London. Beautifully packaged and musically focused -- unlike so many "experimental" compilations loaded up with 30-second toss offs by "name" artists, this features nine pieces of ultra-quality sound fabrication, with the intent of providing durable home listening. Features: Akemi Ishijima (crackling electroacoustic genius), Michael Ormiston, (drone classic for morin khuur -- a traditional Mongolian stringed instrument), Tom Wallace (high-pitched squeal and experimental drum'n'bass-influenced programming), Hugh Davies (a work for concert aolian harp and tape by one of the most infamous names in electronic music), John Grieve (processed solo tenor sax), Bob Cobbing & Lawrence Upton (freaky throat clearance and ringing bells from these British sound poets), Clive Graham (first solo work by this Morphogenesis member, streaming electronic disruption) and Rolf Gehlhaar (Stockhausen's personal assistant from '67-'70 , with a track for 4-channel tape and live electronics.
