Notes & Reviews:

Gavin Bryar's music, post ' The Sinking of the Titanic' and 'Jesus' Blood...', is well known and often performed today. Less known are the earlier works featured on this CD, created during the years 1969-1971. During this time, Bryars became associated with Michael Nyman, John Tilbury and Brian Eno - marrying ideas from Cage, Fluxus, free improvisation and experimentalism. Some of these works appeared on Eno's avant-garde Obscure label in the mid 1970s.
