For ABLAZE Records' first ELECTRONIC MASTERS disc we sought music that was particularly focused on new approaches to electronic, computer and electro-acoustic music. We are proud of the diversity of work included on this disc which includes work from Korea, Australia, Greece and the United States. Sangbong Nam's work Awaken opens the disc with a beautiful meditative piece based on bell sounds. American Charles Nichols' work Posture is for computer processed vocal and violin sounds, while Australian Daniel Blinkhorn's Anthozoa is based on his composite coral recordings that are part of his aqueous mapping of coral reef environments, which are then seamlessly coupled with prepared piano sounds. American Arthur Gottschalk's work Stations for percussion and electronics was realized at the famous Columbia Princeton Electronic Music Center and the iconic sounds used in this work blend tremendously well with the live percussion sounds. After 360° by Greek composer George Kouvaras is an evocative, intimate work using processed vocal sounds and other sound sources all of which are computer processed, while American Paul Oehlers work Protolith is a superbly engineered and beautifully realized abstract sound portrait drawing on natural sounds which are computer processed with a sophistication that draws the ear into this very personal sound world. Not only about the technology, ABLAZE Records set out to achieve an impressive disc of new electronic music that could stand as compelling artistic statements and the composers on this disc have made that a reality. This new collection of great works, is mastered by the superb Grammy Award winning mastering engineer, Silas Brown.
