Extremely great reissue of the previously-semi-available-but-not-so-for-quite-a-l ong-time October Music CD (which itself was a reissue of the 1977 LP on Wishart's own Yes imprint, along with the piece 'Anticredos' for 6 voices, from an LP on Hyperion, 1982). Recent developments in Wishart's street cred (contributing to Or Some Computer Music Issue One, being name-dropped by Richie Devine on several occasions, Aphex Twin's use of CDP) seem to suddenly make Trevor... relevant to a younger set of listeners. Which is not entirely a bad thing (mind you). 'Red Bird' is for electronic sounds, where 'vocal sounds are changed into metallic hammers, a book slammed closed becomes a slammed door ... A vast array of recorded sounds shift and slowly morph into other sounds, and the effect is magical'. Rumours abound of this being the piece specified in Stapleton's'list' (adorning the fold of the Chance Meeting LP), NOT the 'Beach Singularity/Menagerie' set reissued by the seemingly 95% 'list'-fueled Paradigm reissue program (not surprising seeing the contained seminal vox-murk, sonic transformations, primalcy, etc... influentially evident in Nurse With Wound titles from just later). An amazing document, this. Completely essential.
