Impressively done.  "Douglas Lilburn (1915-2001) is considered the father of New Zealand music.

Artist: LYE, LEN
Title: Composing Motion
Format: CD
Label: Atoll
Country: New Zealand
Price: $18.00
Very cool sound-art document, based on the unique metal sculptures of New Zealands legendary visual artist, Len Lye. Fans of Harry Bertoia, Ellen Fullman, Bill Fontana, etc., take note! "This CD makes available for the first time modern stereo recordings of the sounds of his sculptures, and provides an introduction to Lyes fascinating soundworld. Len Lye was one of the most innovative artists of his era. Based in New Yorks Greenwich Village during the 1950s and 60s, Lye was a leading figure in the development of kinetic art. He designed and built a series of moving, sound-emitting sculptures that are breathtaking visually and sonically." Sound crazy people vibrate to sound and this disc is for them; its got some of the sharpest astringent zings of sound that ever cut the air, maybe because its all made with doctors blade steel, some of it the sharpest. ... All I know is that when its set up in motorized vibrating and shaking devices, and struck with strikers, it cuts a new sound groove. - Len Lye (from program notes for an intended LP, which never got made).
