First issue of this archival recording, put to tape in 1973. This is not a reissue, but the first Basil Kirchin recording released for thirty years. This release is said to be his finest hour, if not his weirdest. Kirchin created a unique mixture of jazz and field recordings, having profound influence on artists such as Brian Eno (ambient works) and Nurse With Wound. Even bands such as Broadcast are now citing Kirchin as an influence. Constructed in the early 70s, QUANTUM was spliced together by Basil using jazz pieces, incidental outdoor recordings (animals, insects, trains), his wife’s voice and autistic children. Artists involved include Evan Parker, Darryl Runswick, Kenny Wheeler and Graham Lyons. The result is a very memorable and exhilarating journey through sound. Press: “Beautiful and often extraordinarily dark, imagine an early 1970s version of the Aphex Twin mixed with a bit of Bjork."
