“The Golden Age of Electronic Music” refers to the period during the seventies when analog synthesizers were at their most powerful, and many fascinating works were being created using these with multitrack reel-to-reel tape recorders, noise reducing equipment, analog processors, and large mixers. The McLeans worked from 1974–76 with the Synthi 100 and Arp 2600 Synthesizers, Scully tape recorders, spring reverbs, the ElectroComp 101 Synthesizer, and many small devices in the Indiana University at South Bend Electronic Music Center. The equipment, large and cumbersome, filled the four walls of the studio, and the composers would often run, back and forth between stations, spending as many as twenty-two hours at a time to develop one complex sound. The pleasure of creating one’s own sound universe, of sculpting audible art in real time and reveling in the results was enough reason to endure the inconveniences!

This title, originally issued on the CRI label, is now available for order from New World Records as an on-demand CD (CD-R). It can also be downloaded in MP3/320, FLAC and/or WAV format(s).
