Steve Moore : A Quiet Gathering

Ex-psychology-school-dropout-turned-electro-acoustic-music-wizard's second release (first being a cassette-only Return Of The Poet) from 1988. Side one composed entirely of field recordings edited together to make a logical whole. Side two is an eight-part suite made of samples from other people's music treated into unrecognition, with some scarce 'real' instruments added. Plus a brief, more 'composed' piece. Dramatic, brilliant and listenable. At moments also breathtakingly beautiful...
Note: Be sure to check also his extraordinary Threshold Of Liberty cassette!
