*2024 stock* This album recorded in 1967 by the Electronic Music Studio (EMS) of the University of Toronto exemplifies early experimentations in electronic music. It was the first studio of its kind in Canada (founded by Dr Arnold Walter) and the second in the North American Continent. The abstract songs are eerily captivating.
