ELECTRONIC MUSIC FOUNDATION
"Larry Austin, electronic music pioneering composer, remixes John Cage's 1952 classic as 'Williams [re]Mix[ed]', bringing all of the sounds of the world together into one computer-based sound collage. He brings the táragató, a Hungarian folk instrument, into the realm of the electronic world. He transforms Thomas Buckner's baritone voice. And more. This CD is a 2-track mix of music originally composed for presentation with a surround-sound eight-loudspeaker system. It combines an immense variety of electronic, vocal, and instrumental sound, performed beautifully by Thomas Buckner, Stephen Duke, and Esther Lamneck, soloists."
