***DASZU was based in Milwaukee, not in the UK. Except for cassette distributions in Helsinki and Dublin, and a few scattered performances, they lived, practiced and performed near home. In 1979, MARK RUDOLPH (now an interactive 3D artist, musician, software developer, mathematician and the director of  i3Dmedia LLC) talked in his kitchen to DAVID WOLF about an idea he had for a new music: how music could be 'popular' without rock guitars and big wall sound such as large amps and organs. "I said we could do a minimal three-piece music based on new melodic lines and poetry and synthesis. I thought that we could remake reality. It was possibly ambitious, but I didn't think so. We decided to do it." They didn't use a big polyphonic keyboard, preferring a mini-moog sound generator. The 1/2 Dativa material included on our Lion survey of Daszu's musical innovations was the work of Rudolph and his Australian friend and musician, GREG O'CONNOR (BOOM CRASH OPERA). Rudolph had been studying mathematics and computer music in Australia, and a mix of Daszu, his computer generated music and O'Connor's great genius with electronic parts is evident in these intense, propulsive recordings made on a pair of DX-7 synthesizers one feverish day in 1983. CD version includes a 24-page booklet. First time on vinyl for all tracks, including two bonus songs not on the CD version. LP comes with an 8-page booklet.
