4 new tracks from the 3 audio artists who make up the forthcoming Touch Tour [UK, May 2001]. All are exclusive tracks recorded specifically for this CD, released for the tour.

Taking the everyday world as source material and inspiration, the three international collaborations between electronic sound artists and visual artists present a vivid introduction to the work of Touch, the ground-breaking audio-visual label, in its twentieth year.

Hazard [Benny Jonas Nilsen, Sweden] - has recorded albums for the Swedish dark industrial label, Cold Meat Industry, and Ash International [Ash 4.5 and 5.5]. His forthcoming album, Wind [Ash
6.5], draws on recordings made by Chris Watson. Hazard's compositions evoke extreme climatic conditions and the perception of time and space as experienced through sound. Filmic in scope, his environmental sounds take the listener to another place, sending images cascading through the mind and captivating in an almost hypnotic way. 'Soundtracks for spaces where, for a while, humans have not trodden.' - (Vital, The Netherlands).

Fennesz [Christian Fennesz, Austria] - has made two solo recordings for Touch and two for Mego, including Endless Summer, to be released in May. Fennesz uses guitar and computer to create shimmering, swirling electronic sounds of enormous range and complex musicality.
'Imagine the electric guitar severed from clichA(C) and all of its physical limitations, shaping a bold new musical language.' - (City Newspaper, USA). His lush and luminous computer experiments are emotive digital compositions. They resemble sensitive, telescopic recordings of rainforest insect life or natural atmospheric occurrences.

Biosphere [Geir Jenssen, Norway] - recorded Cirque for Touch in 2000 and in May is releasing Substrata 2; a remastering of his 1997 classic, 'Substrata' and a bonus CD with two tracks from the Japanese edition [unreleased in the west], and 'A Man with a Camera', 9 unreleased compositions from the soundtrack for the movie of the same name, first shown at the International Film Festival in Tromso in 1997.

Biosphere's music is an intimate reflection of the space and climate of his Arctic base in Tromso. 'The music draws you in and makes you want to listen and feel. It acts on a very emotional level, one that encourages you to drift away into a haze of images and scenes where spectacular beauty hides unseen danger. Intense and moving' (Grooves, USA). Here there are two new versions of two tracks from Cirque, When I Leave and Algae and Fungi.

The CD is 25 minutes long, with photography and design by Jon Wozencroft.'
