Dean Suzuki, Option, no. 37, March 1, 1991

This sampler contains works by a wide variety of mostly Canadian composers and sound artists, ranging from the sampler/manipulator par excellence, John Oswald, to the German born Canadian composer Hildegard Westerkamp, from the old ‘60s school of electronic music representative Francis Dhomont of France, to sound poet and sound artist Richard Truhlar, and even Charles Amirkhanian. With such an array of creative artists, one encounters virtually all possible electronic techniques, sounds, and styles, from analog to digital, synthesis to sampling, from electroacoustic to purely electronic, from gentle, tonal sounds to shards and sheets of thunderous, grating dissonance. If you don’t like one track, simply advance to the next and you will certainly find something to suit your taste.
