STUDIES ON THE ANS   [Krabbesholm]

3 studies created with the ANS, a photoelectronic instrument created by Eugene Murzin in 1958, then residing at the Theremin Center (Moscow Conservatory). 720 tones are generated via bands printed on glass discs, gated by a "work surface" covered in black mastic and resynthesized via photocells. Released by Krabbesholm Højskole in Skive, Denmark. (For more information on the ANS, see the Pictures section under Thermin Center.)
