[ Rattle Records / CD ]
Release Date: Friday 12 June 2020
Free Radicals were a Wellington-based art music duo active in the early 80s, described by one reviewer as 'Eno meets industrial punk meets Stockhausen'.
"The music of Free Radicals still, years later, sounds like no other, two experimental classical composers using technology developed primarily for pop music."
Free Radicals is one of four inaugural releases to mark the launch of a new imprint, Rattle Echo. This new label will present New Zealand art-music recordings from the past that have either never been commercially released or made available digitally, or that simply deserve to be more widely known. These releases will, at the very least, be remastered, but where possible the recordings will be remixed, and in some cases reworked to produce similar but modified or updated versions of the original recordings.
