Marking its Fortieth anniversary, this definitive, release is newly remastered by James Savage and makes available all versions including the only live recording of "Art and Science". Due to the duration of these pieces Music for Land and Water is exclusively available in multiple digital formats.
Since 1983 the three pieces that comprise Music for Land and Water have been available in a variety of formats and mixes: the original 1983 Palace of Lights cassette; a remastered version for the Autumn Records CD release; and finally the edited and remixed versions produced for the 2018 limited edition vinyl release on the Les Giants label.
Originally developed for a gallery installation, MFLAW was assembled using four closed-loop, multi-track tape players, each playing back a different duration closed loop containing varied time and pitch compatible material. In addition to the installation, Art and Science was performed in Seattle's Seward Park. That performance, included here, shows the effects of winds on open tape loops, adding occasional flutter and distortion as the masters ran from one machine to the next. Seward Park proved an ideal setting for hearing the music, especially out on the trails and among the trees, away from the amphitheater, where the music approached silence.
