Title: Ancient Minimal Meditations
Format: Cass
Label: North Star Productions
Country: USA
Price: $8.00
"This came after Wizards and is a continuation of the Wizards dark, deep electronic, minimal, meditative type music. If you liked Wizards, you will probably like this, too. As much of my trance work, it is inspired by Terry Riley, one of the earliest people ever to compose and perform long, extended, cyclic pieces in the electronic format. This is my first attempt at very deep, meditative music. This music was composed and performed between 1981 and 1985. This is good, late night, deep meditative music. Very nice when using headphones, too. The instrumentation is three Sequencial Circuits PRO-1s, Crumar Traveler One and a Yamaha SK-20, all real time recording to a Teac 4-track reel-to-reel. I mixed the four tracks to a Teac A-6300 Master 2-Track using a DeltaLab DL-2 to create the delay track. In 2006, I used a Tascam 34B 4-track to remaster all my master tapes to digital master of 196 KHz/24 bit .WAV files using Soundforge 8 software." - North Star Productions. 1986 release. Original Jcards and labels on newly manufactured cassettes.

Title: Rain Forest Music
Format: Cass
Label: North Star Productions
Country: USA
Price: $8.00
"This complilation is created from the original tapes and LP. The tracks were cut from the original tapes and digitized at 196 hHz/24 bit for the production of this CD. Rain Forest Music - Take recordings of rainfall and thurnder from the East Texas forests, and bird sounds from the Houston Zoomixed with soothing, electronic music and it creates a peaceful, listening experience. This is the original version of Rain Forest Music created in 1981 on a cassette titled, "Sound Paintings" and named "Rain Forest." I then give its own tape title, "Rain Forest Music" with "Ocean Music" as side two. I have kept the title names as used on the original tapes. Ocean Music - Inspired by many early morning and evening walks on many different beaches sets up this musical experience! This originally was side two of the "Rain Forest Music" tape. It consist of four jazz/electronic pieces with synthesized ocean sounds in the background. Visions of Life "Visions of Life" was originally a tape with "Rain Forest Music" as side two. Then I presented it on the Rain Forest Music LP as "Visions During Movement." I used a recording technique called, Continuous Tape Looping. It was used on albums by Terry Riley, Robert Fripp and Brian Eno, to name a few artist. I used two reel-to-reel tape decks placed about a foot apart, though you can set different distances to control the loop timing. This was all done in real time by starting the recording on deck 1, playing it back on deck 2 feeding the signal back to deck 1 carefully keeping the recording level stable, all the while adding new music and letting old music fade out. This image from the back cover of Brian Enos Discreet vinyl album illustates how this works. I used the Crumar Organ as the only instrument, adding different riffs and themes as it developed. Then I did the final master using a tape delay for the movement between tracks and a synthesizer for the ocean sounds. Album cover was from an orginal water color created especially for the LP in 1982 by a local, Houston artist, Molly Khan. The sunrise photo was taken one morning in Virginia Beach, VA, during the 70s. The instrumentation is a Crumar Traveler-1 organ and Yairi accoustic guitar processed with an EchoPlex EP-4, a DOD Phaser and a Ross Compressor recorded on a Teac A-3340S." - North Star Productions.

Title: Wizards
Format: CD
Label: North Star Productions
Country: USA
Price: $11.00
"Wizards was my first deep trance electronic music album. This album was inspired by Terry Riley , one of the earliest people ever to compose and perform long, extended, cyclic pieces in the electronic format. This music was composed and performed in 81 and 82. I consider this album my best work. The instrumentation is three Sequencial Circuits PRO-1s, Crumar Traveler One and a Yamaha SK-20, all real time recording to a Teac 4-track reel-to-reel. I mixed the four tracks to a Teac A-6300 Master 2-Track using a DeltaLab DL-2 to create the delay track. In 2006, I used a Tascam 34B 4-track to remaster all my master tapes to digital master of 196 KHz/24 bit .WAV files using Soundforge 8 software. The original Wizards LP was published in the Summer of 1982 with the black and white cover. The initial tracks had not names and were call Movements I-V. Several years later sales had slowed down, in an effort to improve sales we tried the color cover and I created names for each track.." - North Star.
