1980年代カリフォルニアにてメールアートと並行して自身のMinoy Cassetteworksより大量のエクスペリメンタル・カセット作品を発表。そのどれもが今や中古市場にも出ず入手困難となっている、If, Bwana、Agog、David Prescott、PBKとも活動を共にしたMinoyことStanley Keith Bowsza。タルコフスキーの"Solaris"、"Stalker"、"Andrei Rublev"に捧げられた86年カセット[In Search Of Tarkovsky]をCold Springが初のリマスター再発。コラージュを縒り合わせたエレクトロニクス、漆黒の闇を思わせる電子音、やけに落ち着きのある夢見心地なリフ、それらが高密度のアブストラクト持続音として記録された約30分の2曲。





Minóy (1951-2010), a major figure in DIY noise music, produced some of the most remarkably engrossing, beautiful and imaginative work-of-art albums released on cassette in the 1980's.

Created in 1986, "In Search Of Tarkovsky" is dedicated to the late Russian Director Andrei Tarkovsky ("Solaris", "Stalker", "Andrei Rublev" etc). A unique world of musical expression, with dense audio abstractions where the origin of any particular sound isn't quite discernible. A form of labyrinthian, droning collage electronics, otherworldly and dreamlike, at times nightmarish, at times sad, but always bold and deeply affecting.

Composed after the director's death, it contains many trademarks of Minóy's style: manipulation of shortwave radio, use of spring reverb to get those strangely echoing, claustrophobic environments, and then the howling vocals, piling-up and distorting. Minóy plainly mourns the director's death but in such a unique way there is nothing to compare it to. Two long-form, elaborate pieces (just under 1 hour), essential to Minóy's aesthetic of "cinema of the ear".

This is the first Minóy material ever to be reissued. Unavailable since the original cassette release, these tracks have been remastered from the original archive files and are presented for the first time on CD in a matt-laminate digipak.
