Item ID: 430218

Founded in 1974 and based in New Zealand, sound-performance group From Scratch used an evolving array of percussion instruments to create distinctive rhythmic music. Their material was texturally rich and tonally sumptuous, making use of found and repurposed objects as well as custom-made percussion instruments. Given their Pacific identity, one can find similarities with a number of Asian Pacific genres. This music will appeal to open-eared listeners and it will intrigue admirers of the early work of Steve Reich and Terry Riley. These four tracks, dating from the period 1974-1982, have been remastered from the original master tapes.
