7/10 Mike Staff review, 22 May 2014
Are you ready for some minimal early electronics? I said are you ready for some minimal early electronics?! Well good, because here's another Tod Dockstader reissue from Doxy Music. These are synth experiments from as far back as 1961, with one piece from 1960. It's an economical and systematic exercise in tone generation which goes through several movements from the weird artificial chatter and laughter of 'Luna Park''s opening movement to the cold metallic drones of 'Traveling Music'.   What's remarkable is how atmospheric and current it sounds, especially in these days where ancient synths and analogue recording are being re-discovered in a post-digital context. The lengthy 'Apocalypse' on side B is the most enjoyable listen of the bunch, full of dark stabbing piano dischord, samples of voices and aeroplanes sped up and slowed down in unsettling snippets, all manner of maddening noises.   This is one for the early electronic avant garde enthusiasts, the "man on the street" may not consider it music, but it's certainly packed full of unusual sounds. Sounds you've never heard before.
