If you want to know what this release is all about then you can get it straight from the horses mouth right there on the item page. I won't even begin to attempt to re transcribe it. The sonics really are very interesting, provided by Charles Curtis on Cello, Robert Dick on flutes, Robin Hayward on Tuba, Joseph Kubera on Piano and Danny Tunick plays vibraphone. Of course none of these guys are playing all at the same time. Instead what we have are immaculate experiments in pure sound exploring tone, pitch etc. for example 'Twonings' has a pianist and a cellist playing a series of pitches in unison, the cellist in just intonation and pianist in equal temperament. The result is audible beating and other acoustic phenomena as discrepancies in pitches occur due to the different tuning systems. Probably unsuitable for getting girls on the dancefloor but lots of interesting food for thought in terms of the way we experience sound and the physics that control it.
