Recording Notes
Jerry Hunt is a unique and often misunderstood figure in New Music. His MH release from ‘Ground’ captures an excerpt from a performance of his avant-garde operatic piece Ground at KPFA’s studios in Berkeley, CA. In this unique expression of ritualistic music, the composer uses his voice and body to trigger electronic samples. Included are detailed liner notes by David Menestres.

Editorial Reviews

[Jerry Hunt] was one of the first performers to work with live electronic music, but he was as interested in physical sources of sound as in the expressiveness of artificial synthesis. Stephen Smoliar, The Reherarsal Studio blog.

‘From “Ground”‘ brings us almost 30-minutes of the total weird, personal, and oft-transgressive music of Texas-born and bred Jerry Hunt (1943–1993). – Jason Victor Serinus
