Bass – Peter Warren

Piano, Synthesizer [Modulator] – Masahiko Sato

Recorded live at the Studio 70, Munich, Germany. Introduction by Peter Warren.

This was the 5th release on the Fledgling ENJA label ,who back then were among the few independent s putting out challenging material , in a totally free vein.

This is the sort of gig that a label like Intakt would now put out.
2 side long Totally free improvisations rooted in the traditions of jazz language , and the Darmstadt Avant guard of the day.

Sato's subtle use of ring modulator , is very reminiscent of the sound effects on Alois Kontarskys piano , on the original recording of Stockhausen's Mantra.
All three Musicians are still active as far as i know , though both Sato and Warren have since the 70's focused more on making modern mainstream Jazz orientated recordings.

Pierre Favre continues as an occasional free improviser , composer and band leader in rewarding challenging territory. A lot of his current projects can be found on the aforementioned Intakt label ,which he co founded with Irene Schweizer.
