An album of unique, all analog electronica created and recorded in the summer of 1978 on 4-Track reel to reel tape. Our compositional approach was semi-spontaneous, with some songs being fully composed and others reflecting numerous improvised parts over predefined backing tracks. Each individual track within a song is a single “take”, meaning it was performed and recorded as played, without any editing.
This album features various keyboards, synthesizers and guitar synthesizer to create some distinctive electronic textures, including a Micromoog, Oberheim Expander Module, Yamaha CS-50, Fender Rhodes, Gibson Organ and piano along with David’s extensive playing on the ARP Avatar Guitar Synthesizer, the first of its kind.
The songs are presented exactly as they were recorded and mixed back in 1978 and were remastered by DT at his home studio in early 2020. We hope you enjoy it.
