A Sky of Cloudless Sulphur is a purely electronic work. After the Butterfly is a concerto-like work for trumpet, instrumental ensemble, and "ghost" electronics.
More minimalist goodness, this time from Morton Subotnick, but a much healthier cassette this time, thank heaven! I know almost nothing about this tape except what the sleeve tells me, which is... almost nothing.
