Tomlab is happy to announce a new collaboration with Rafael Toral! After the previous CD release "Cyclorama Lift 3" (tom7) we had the opportunity to work with Rafael on the release of his very early recordings.
"Having completed "Violence of Discovery and Calm of Acceptance", i found myself drawing a continuous line going back in time some 15 years. These early pieces are at the other end of that line. At the time of recording them, i was far from dreaming i would ever release records at all. I found them of little value then, but under the light of all my following works, from "Sound Mind Sound Body" through "Wave Field" and "Cyclorama Lift" to "Violence of Discovery and Calm of Acceptance", they stand out as having paved the way for all this music." (Rafael Toral, December 2001)
"A testimony to the premature triumphs of precocious genius.." (Tom Roberts for dustedmag)
