Hugh Davies was one of the masters of contemporary experimental music. His tireless search for musical invention and his historical accuracy led him to explore different fields in music. This one is a selection of his lesser known electronic pieces, that he choose to represent his own approach to the matter. Now that he’s not more with us this collection remains as an outstanding picture of his creativity in music. In the broader sense, as he was used to do.
“When I began my musical career in the mid-1960s I thought of myself as a composer with a strong interest in what was then known as electronic music, especially live electronic music. My early work with live electronics soon led me to what has become the main focus of my creative activities, inventing and performing on new, usually amplified instruments. Because I have been primarily involved in live performance I have composed comparatively little taped electronic music, even though, in addition to my small home studio, I had free access to a university studio for 25 years (modest for the first 15 years, and then well- equipped). This album contains my most substantial compositions in the medium, for prerecorded tape or CD.” (Hugh Davies). Liner notes by David Toop.
