The album was released in 1975 and contains three early works by Moriss Pert, a composer/pianist of contemporary music and a unique drummer who played in groups such as Brand X and Mike Oldfield's. A1 is a duo piece for bassoon and piano, and A2 is a duo piece for soprano and piano, with Pert herself playing the piano. The B-side is the most notable. It is a live recording that mixes percussion, acoustic piano, electric piano, electric cello, electric French horn, and tape electronics. The album opens with a tranquil space with metallic percussion, followed by a raging percussion and a fuzz guitar-like electric cello(?). It is reminiscent of Wolfgang Dauner's Et Cetera and ECM's Output. It is also similar to Sutomu Yamash'ta, but more psychedelic.B1: Chromosphere
