A 25-minute CD EP from 1994. by this renowned UK tape/voice/concrete composer. "Explores our human aspirations and absurdities, through the musical transformation of the human voice. The slightly angry, disgruntled, comic mutterings with which the piece begins are the source of all the sounds, which appear in it: sounds suggesting drums, water, metallic resonances, fireworks, or entirely imaginary materials or events, all generated through processes of sound-transformation on the computer. 'Tongues of Fire' uses the whole range of sound-processing and sound-texturing tools available on the computer. Many new and non-standard techniques are used, such as constructive distortion (e.g. spectral tracing, waveset distortion) and sound-shredding.
