'Classical. Electro acoustic and widdly weird noises from the big brain. Over the last few years intrepid music lovers have been investigating and enjoying the work of pioneering electronic musicians, electro-acoustic artists and all the groovy folks who spent hours manipulating and cutting tape to make new and exciting sounds. It's meant that lots of interesting figures have been brought back into our musical view. But one of the most important, innovative, influential and almost forgotten artists of them all is Tristram Cary. He hasn't had that much exposure over the last few years. Not much at all considering he is known as 'the father of electronic music'. Well now his story is here. Some of his experimental music is here. And you are here too. So buy this CD now and spend some time  with the great man and his extraordinary compositions for film, TV, sculptures and exhibitions. And if you like this hopefully more Cary recordings will follow. The title for this album caused me lots of problems. In the end I decided that 'it was time' we all learnt a bit more about this great man. He is a towering musical figure who lots of people have never really come across, but whose influence is all around us. For further joy I'd suggest looking up the following two obscure documentaries where the importance of his work becomes even more apparent: The Same Trade As Mozart (1969), What The Future Sounded Like (2007). Featured on this album are a number of recordings from different sources, but all of course from the Tristram Cary archive. I'd agreed which archive pieces I was going to use with Tristram about 6 months before he died. And thanks to the enthusiasm and help of his son Mark, this project has continued.' Jonny Trunk
