An album that joined our vinyl library in 1986. It's got a madcap modern-classical sound, complex and tumbling, with lots of unusual instruments (oboe, bassoon, koto). Very interesting stuff, really grabs you quickly.

Reminds me a little of Dan Plonsey's pieces for Daniel Popsicle -- except Plonsey relies on steady pulsing rhythm, whereas this gets all tangly and complicated.
