This collection includes a first release of the award-winning CYCLONE plus two LP reissues offered here remixed to her original surround concept: as lightning comes, in flashes explores a vast array of La Barbara’s signature extended vocal techniques; Autumn Signal is a rare example of the composer’s work with Buchla synthesizer for spatialization as well as modification of vocals. 96khz/24-bit transfers were made from the original multi-track analog tapes. New stereo and surround mixes were then created under the supervision of the composer. On the Bluray edition: The stereo soundtrack is presented in uncompressed 24-bit PCM audio.
