Len Lye was one of the most innovative artists of his era.
Based in New York’s Greenwich Village during the 1950s
and 60s, Lye was a leading figure in the development of kinetic
art. He designed and built a series of moving, sound-emitting
sculptures that are breathtaking visually and sonically.
"These recordings were made with a simple yet appropriate stereo miking
technique that mimics the human ears and to me is the next best thing to
experiencing these pieces firsthand... It’s easy for an album like this to
rest upon the laurels of historical significance, but in this instance the
aural pleasure it gives far exceeds such considerations."
