This album was released in 1972 by B.H. Zimmermann, a German composer who left many experimental works since the 1960s. A1 is a concerto by Ernst Bour, conducted by Siegfried Palm on cello and played by the Southwest German Radio Symphony Orchestra, and B1 is a Prelude for large orchestra conducted by Hans Zender and played by the Berlin Radio Symphony Orchestra. Of particular note is B2, an electronic piece, one of two electronic works in Zimmerman's lifetime, composed for the 1970 Osaka World's Fair and performed on tape in the spherical auditorium of the West German Pavilion, directed by Stockhausen. Produced entirely on sine wave, it is swallowed up by electronic sounds that seem to expand time and space. This is a Japanese pressing released in 1973 with silk screen printed art work by Kohei Sugiura.

B1: Photoptosis
B2: Tratto II
