Limited edition of 500. Galen Herod is one of the pioneering synthesis artists of American cassette culture. From 1979 to 1982 he produced several outstanding and creative electronic tape releases which he distributed either via Eurock or by himself in the Phoenix, Arizona area. His very early tape works are dominated by abstract, austere, experimental electronics in the vein of Conrad Schnitzler, using tape loops and completely homemade synth-equipment includes oscillators, filters, and sequencers designed and built by his friend Gary Dukarich. In late 1981 he met Greg Horn and formed the successful minimal synthpop band Tone Set. This double LP set compiles recordings released between 1980 and 1982 on Patterns for the Outside Surface of a Cube (1980), The Trouble with Bill (1982), Meditationes Algebraicae, and Life on this Earth.
