Paul Dolden - CAPAC 7"

Paul Dolden - CAPAC 7"

Really nice set of early digital/computer music. Part of the CAPAC 7" series released in the early 80's. 

"The Melting Voice Through Mazes Running" was made with the POD computer music system developed by Barry Truax at Simon Fraser University. As a bonus, I've included the whole 21 minute version taken from the Tronia Disc CD, "The Threshold of Deafening Silence".

The B side, "Veils - Studies in Textural Transformations", was done entirely with acoustic instruments and the sound is a result of extensive multitracking - anywhere from 180-280 tracks of the same instruments can be heard at any time throughout the piece.
