The Synth and Electronic Recording Exchanges

Some of the tapes that Delia and Martin Hannett exchanged in the 1970 were released as an album, which is

supposedly a back and forth, one track from Delia then one by Martin, but the sequencing feels arbitrary and a bit of a mess, skipping from Hannett’s baroque twils to dark blasts of sci-fi analog electronics and back, over and again.[1]

The Hannett's tracks are mostly Wendy Carlos-like versions of traditional themes
