1994 CD release, recorded Jan/Feb 1981 at Darlington College of the Arts, Totnes, Devon, UK. Fantastic recording of some very repetitive and zonked trombone-fueled electronics from this Phill Niblock affiliate, straddling the devide betwixt Stuart Dempster's cavernous echo patterns and terry riley's horn-tape meditations lyou can hear echoes of the same approach i used on ‘playthroughs’ very clearly on 'part iii'. which is pretty amazing as ive only just discovered this now ... another piece of the electronics vs. human breath puzzle ... (Mimaroglu)
In this extended composition, veteran avant-garde trombonist James Fulkerson … unabashedly revels in post-modern tonality … Much of this is predictable, much is interesting, and some is beautiful. --American Record Guide
