Super Tip! 180 minutes of cybernetic music made available in a unique 3 cd box. Recent years have seen the release and reissue of dozens of hours of Roland Kayn’s music, on several labels and in both physical and digital formats. Our interconnected yet chaotically imbued age seems to be the seeing in which Kayn has truly found his audience. The scene is now set for one of the most momentous works in his oeuvre to return to the shelves.
Reissued by Reiger Records Reeks – the composer’s own label, now presided over by his daughter Ilse – Infra, realised between Autumn 1978 and Summer 1979, here unfolds across 3 CDs and an extensive booklet. The new edition was mastered by Jim O’Rourke from a transfer of the original tapes present in the Lydia and Roland Kayn Archive.
One of the titanic cybernetic works Kayn originally released on the Colosseum label in the early 80s, ‘Infra’ (1978-79) has come to occupy a very special place in the hearts of fans lucky enough to have copies of the original vinyl box sets. Now lovingly remastered from the original archive masters by Kayn devotee Jim O’Rourke, ‘Infra’ has finally found its way to CD for a new generation of admirers to discover.
