Lilburn ,DouglasComplete Electro-Acoustic Works

Douglas Lilburn (1915-2001) is considered 'the father of New Zealand music’ and most certainly the pioneering father of New Zealand electronic music - Jack Body, John Rimmer, Phil Dadson, Salmonella Dub, Shapeshifter and Rhian Sheehan to name a select few are all influenced by Douglas Lilburn.
 In the early – mid 1960s’ - after considerable success as an artist - he rejected composing for acoustic musical instruments and turned wholly to the creation of electronic works. The works on Complete Electro-Acoustic Works date from 1963-1975, have been restored to a high sonic standard and are available for the first time in one collection. Some works are purely electronic, others were inspired by the natural sounds of the sea or bush, or the writings of leading New Zealand writers such as Allen Curnow, Denis Glover and Alistair Campbell.

Sampling,spoken word, birdsong, self-generated sounds and exploratory techniques: splicing, filtering, and soundscaping using entirely synthetic materials are all present. The 3 CD set includes a DVD containing two 4-channel works by Lilburn, with all extant film material of the composer, plus an informative sound interview and photographs.
