marc barreca: recordings 1977-1983

Marc Barreca is an American synthesist and multi-instrumentalist and one of the pioneers of American cassette culture. Inspired by Brian Eno and the ambient school, he began recording his own music in the mid-'70s. By 1980 he already recorded three tapes: In a Foreign Land (1977), Raw Fish and Green Tea (1979/'80), and Currents (1979/'80) -- all three only released and distributed via Eurock in an extremely low quantity. In 1980 he released his first LP, Twilight, on K. Leimer's Palace of Lights label; a tape called Music Works for Industry would follow three years later on Palace of Lights, and another, The Sleeper Wakes, three years later on Jeff Greinke's Intrepid label. Besides performing together with James Husted and Roland Barker as the Seattle-based electronic music group Young Scientist in the late 1970s and early 1980s, he was also a member of K. Leimer's studio group Savant. Barreca uses digital and analog synthesizers, digital samplers, environmental field recordings, and computer-processed audio loops to create multi-layered audio compositions. He employs similar techniques to those used in his audio recordings to create multilayered abstract visual compositions from digital photos and video source material. This LP includes tracks from Raw Fish and Green Tea (1979/'80), Currents (1979/'80), Music Works for Industry (1983), and In a Foreign Land (1977). ltd ed. 200.
