"Negative Sound Study was composed in 1969 directly on a historical Buchla 100-System experimental synthesizer available at the Intermedia Centre of the New York University. Charlemagne Palestine was dreaming of an expressive continuous evermoving, everchanging sound form; an enormous sonorous, 3-dimensional sculptural canvas in mid-air using electronically produced sounds. The first experiments were done with simple sine tone generators emitting the purest sound waves without any overtones. With access to more complex systems the sound was constructed using the sine/sawtooth/square wave oscillators in a fluid everchanging mix of adding or filtering overtones and white niose to create sonorities constantly changing timbres and weight. "Negative Sound Study", remained unheard for the last 33 years, is one of the purest and most compelling works for electronic sonorities ever composed. LP edition of 290 copies only." - Alga Marghen.
