David First - Privacy Issues 3CD 24169
Long overdue overview of composer David First's drone works on Phil Nibblock's XI label. This special 3CD-Box is comprised of nine works composed between 1996 and 2009. "This was something unexpected and truly different: pulsing electronic textures that derived their rhythm from the beating patterns of closely-tune pitches - as if Alvin Lucier and Philip Glass had gone on a blind date to CBGBs? David put the beat in beating patterns." - From the liner notes by composer Nic Collins (on his initial exposure to First's music in 1987).
