two albums of 'agitprop' electronic music -- Tract & To Kill A Sunrise cut between 1968 and 1975 -- by mysterious & controversial Turkish composer Ilhan Mimaroglu -- one of the truly underrepresented pioneers of the golden age of the Princeton-Columbia electronic music scene. Produced as a direct reaction to an extended period of intense repression, counterrevolutionary terror, & execution style murder in Turkey, Tract is a scrambled mash up peppered with spunky electronic bursts, radio ads looped ad nauseum, the breathy, soulful & defiant voice of Turkish singer Tuly Sand & the go-golicious backing jams of little known psych group Topsy Turvy Moon -- all shot up with lines lifted from old left wing standbys Chairman Mao, Karl Marx & Bertolt Brecht among others. To Kill a Sunrise follows suit with a wild, uncompromising orgiastic electro-dirge for those who are murdered by the lackeys of the ruling class while the collection closer, 'La Ruche', brings the audio gestalt to a somewhat more subdued end. Brilliantly remastered from the original tapes, Tract features close to 80 minutes of music and original liners. Ilhan Mimaroglu emerged out of the Columbia -- Princeton Electronic Music Center and public radio programs at New York's WBAI where his socially and politically charged radio programs took the city by surprise. He is best known for his work with Edgard Varese, mentor Vladimir Ussachevsky, a spellbinding collaboration with jazz musician Freddy Hubbard and as a chief composer of Fellini's Satyricon as well as electronic albums released on his own Finnadar label
