Electronic innovator and inventor of the laser harp Bernard Szajner aka 'Z' is set to re-issue his Frank Herbert inspired album "Visions of Dune" later this summer. Originally recorded over 8 days in 1978, Szajner's method of composition involved recording sequenced synthesizer patterns to tape, which were then spliced into repeating tape loops. The resulting combination of thick analog drones, ambient tones and driving percusive pulses create the perfect sonic companion to the cult sci-fi trilogy.
"Visions of Dune" releases August 25 on CD and vinyl through InFine Music and will contain 2 unreleased tracks from Szajner's personal tape archive. Click the player below to hear a 10 minute "Visions of Dune" minimix from audio anthropolgist and Finders Keepers co-founder Andy Votel.
