CD版にのみラスト16分の[Out of Into / 1972]が追加収録されています!!イスタンブール出身、1959年からコロンビア-プリンストン電子音楽センターに招待され制作に勤しんだ、恐らくかなりマニアックな部類に入ると思われる現代/電子音楽家のBulent Arel。もともと作品数が非常に少なく、本作は単独名義で発表された最初の音源と思われるベルギーSub Rosaからのアーカイヴ。かのCreel PoneがCD-R化したDaria Semegenとの78年スプリット盤の音源3種も含まれた充実の編集内容であり、スペーシーでありながらも一貫したダークさは間違い無く玄人好み。



Bülent Arel's (1919 Turkey - 1990 USA) work occupies a special place in the history of electronic music because one thing is certain: Arel's work is still fresh, groundbreaking, and it seems always to look out for the next adventure in sound.

Bülent Arel was a Turkish-born American composer of electronic and contemporary classical music. He was also a devoted teacher, a sculptor, and a painter. From 1940 until 1947 Arel studied composition, piano, and 20th century classical music at the Ankara Conservatory. In 1959 Arel came to the U.S. on a grant by the Rockefeller
Foundation to work at the Columbia-Princeton Electronic Music Center. By that time the center had just started out under its director Vladimir Ussachevsky.
During Arel's work in Princeton he also met Edgard Varèse with whom in 1962 he worked on the electronic sections of Varèse's 'Déserts'. Frank Zappa lists Arel as a key influence. Today's electronic music - may it be by Autechre's 'Confield', Aphex Twin's 'Selected Ambient Works Vol. II', or Squarepusher's 'Do you know Squarepusher' - builds upon a solid foundation which Bülent Arel helped to pave.
