Rare 1976 UK Original Released On Brian Eno's Obscure Records. With A2/B1 Stampers. Vinyl Appears Glossy, But We Play Graded The Album And There Is Some Light Surface Noise, Hence Price. “From 1968 To 1976, Michael Nyman Worked As A Music Critic For Various Magazines (Studio International, Time Out, Tempo, The New Stateman Or The Spectator). He Studied 16th And 17th C. Baroque Music In The Mid-1960s, Composing Only A Handful Of Musical Pieces Prior To The Present ‘Decay Music’ In 1976, The Real Starting Point Of His Carreer As A Composer. ’1-100' Is An Auto-Generative Composition For Piano That Feeds Itself Along The Way While Remaining Fairly Minimal Throughout. The Kind Of Music That Makes Sense At Low Listening Level – I Would Advise Trying The Experience At Least Once. After All, This Is Inspired By Erik Satie’s Musique D’ameublement (Furniture Music). ‘Bell Set No.1' Is A Brilliant Pseudo-Gamelan Composition With A Slight Touch Of ‘Pump And Circumstances’. The Interprets Are Nigel Shipway And Michael Nyman On Metallophones, Ie: Bells, Triangle, Gongs, Cymbals And Tam-Tam. ‘Bell Set No.1' Is A System Piece Based On The Percussions’ Sharp Attack And Slow Decay, Alternatively Enhancing Each. It Works Perfectly As A Sound Installation Devoid Of Progression Or Change, Without Beginning Nor End. I Think The Piece Bears Some Influences From Henry Wolff And Nancy Jennings’ 1971 ‘Tibetan Bells’, One Of The Earliest Example Of Fusion Between Ethnic And Meditative Music. ‘Bell Set’ Is A Gorgeous Piece Of Upper-Class British Gamelan Played With Tongues Firmly In Cheek As If Composed For An Imaginary Tea Ceremony At Windsor Castle.” - Continuo
