Review by Slartibartfast
2 stars First writen review of this album and probably the last review you'll ever need.

The experiment was a computer program called Pink Tones where parameter were are set by a human and then the computer composes music using a stochastic process. I'm not going into details on that one. You can look it up on the web if you're curious. Of course this was all done back in '80 and you may know how primitive computer technology was back in the day. The program was interfaced with a Prophet 5 synthesizer.

The result reminds me of Fripp's soundscapes. One of the less interesting ones. This probably explains why there volume 1 has basically been a dead end and there haven't been any volume 2. The music here isn't actually bad, nor is it particularly compelling.

For a more interesting computer generated music experiment, I recommend Eno's recent 11 Million Paintings.

I have the 1986 version made from a LP-equalized and compressed cutting master. Don't think I'll be rushing out to replace with the remaster. This one's primarily of interest to synthesizer nuts like myself.
