Parker, Evan: Set (psi)
Label: psi    
Released in: Great Britain    

"This music was inspired by Lynn Margulis' serial endosymbiosis theory (SET), and is dedicated to her and her amazing insights into the mechanisms of biological evolution.

In inviting Paul Lytton, Barry Guy, Walter Prati, Marco Vecchi, Lawrence Casserley and FURT, I was trading on the pre-existing musical structures that these musicians brought with them: the solo works of Guy, Lytton , Casserley and myself; the duos with Lytton, Guy, Prati and Casserley, the trio with Guy and Lytton, the trio with Guy and Casserley; my asking FURT added a further music with its own history."-Evan Parker
