  Work Details  
  Briefly tiring of long pieces, Burt here produced 17 two minute etudes for analog synthesizer. The tuning and rhythmic capabilities of the Serge and Driscoll synthesizers are here stretched to their limits. All sorts of sources and textures are used, from Soloman Islands pan pipe playing to David Tudor inspired noise and feed back patches to elegant interactive note pieces, to minimalist and tonal melodies. A landmark piece in the evolution of the analog synthesizer.
