The ’60s were a heady time for experimental electronic music. Pauline Oliveros’ I of IV, which takes up the entirety of the B-side, is a real-time studio performance of squealing oscillators and tape delay, with an expressive character that would prefigure noise music and freeform electronic improv for decades to come. But the highlight of the set is undoubtedly Steve Reich’s Come Out.

Steve Reich (October 3, 1936, New-York City, USA) is a composer. He studied composition privately with Hall Overton, then moved on to Juilliard School in New-York to study with William Bergsma and Vincent Persichetti (1958 to 1961). Subsequently he attended Mills College in Oakland where he was taught by Luciano Berio and Darius Milhaud (1961-63) and earned a master's degree in composition.

Reverberations: Tape & Electronic Music 1961-1970. The use of patiently manipulated tape loops on later material such as "A Little Noise in the System" predicts much of what would come to be baseline sounds in the academic noise scenes of the late 2000s/early 2010s.

Richard Maxfield’s Night Music employs the tape machine’s bias tone and an oscilloscope as the main sound sources. In I of IV, composer Pauline Oliveros used 12 tone generators, an eight-second tape delay and reverb to create a dense, reverberant recording that was entirely improvised; individual sound will rise to the surface and fade only to repeat later and disappear altogether. Neither of these sounds is typically heard: Bias is an inaudible signal that improves the tape’s fidelity, whereas an oscilloscope is an audio-measurement device normally encountered on a work bench. Maxfield uses these sources to create a series of complex sounds intended to mimic the nighttime vocalizations of birds and insects.
