sample the album:
"Jaap Vink always tried to break out of the periodicity of the sounds so abundantly available in the electronic music studio. Although his music was entirely produced with purely electronic sound material, its textures resemble the richness of orchestral sounds, or large natural sound-complexes, as a result of recursive processes. The density of this sound material increases and decreases by careful control of feedback networks with configurations of analog tape recorders (delay lines), filters, and modulators.
It should come as no surprise that his work is being rediscovered at a time when a new generation of musicians has conquered the stage with modular synthesizer setups and 'no-input mixers', in which feedback of audio and control signals plays an important role. And although Jaap Vink's music wasn't performed live but produced and recorded on magnetic tape in the studio, it is exactly the human interaction with feedback processes that connects his work with the current generation of live electronic music performers.
To some extent Jaap Vink's pieces are indeed recorded live improvisations, and extending his patches and 'rehearsing' with them was an ongoing process. . . . The selection presented here gives an overview of Jaap Vink's works made in Utrecht, ranging from his first composition Screen up to Tide 85."-Kees Tazelaar, liner notes
