All of your favorites, in one place.
4 new tracks from the 3 audio artists (Hazard, Fennesz, Biosphere) who make up the forthcoming Touch Tour [UK, May 2001]. All are exclusive tracks recorded specifically for this CD, released for the tour. Taking the everyday world as source material and inspiration, the three international collaborations between electronic sound artists and visual artists present a vivid introduction to the work of Touch, the ground-breaking audio-visual label, in its twentieth year. Hazard's compositions evoke extreme climactic conditions and the perception of time and space as experienced through sound. Filmic in scope, his environmental sounds take the listener to another place, sending images cascading through the mind and captivating in an almost hypnotic way. Fennesz uses guitar and computer to create shimmering, swirling electronic sounds of enormous range and complex musicality. Biosphere's music is an intimate reflection of the space and climate of his Arctic base in Tromso.
