Electronic Music For Two Ballets

Trunk Records

The long overdue release of what for many was considered a completely lost LP as all of Berk's archive was lost in the collapse of the Historical Archive of Colgne, where it was housed. Berk, fleeing Nazi persucution came to England where he developed an avant-garde interest in both music and Dance. On the 1970 'Electronic Music For Ballet' we hear Berk building a beguiling musical soundscape of electronic sounds, which in terms of compositional strength and originality, sits admirably alongside John Cage, Merce Cunningham, Pierre Henry and Xenakis.
