"Deluxe CD + Book, second edition. Known to the very few, The Electric harpsichord is possibly THE obscure masterpiece of the days of the early American minimalism. Recorded live in 1976 after many years of study under the guidance of Pandit Pran Nath and LaMonte Young, it has finally found the perfect home in the Die Schachtel ART catalogue: a lavishly produced and innovative silver/black cardboard book + CD edition, that gives the work the space and merit it deserves as a unique work of art, complete with two poems by LaMonte Young especially written for this edition, and an extensive essay by Henry Flynt. An improvisation performed on Just Intonation tuned keyboards put through time lag accumulators similar to those used by Terry Riley, hennix has produced one of the most remarkable pieces of music to emerge from the La Monte Young school of minimalism."
