Innova Recordings has just released Lost Atlantis, an album of analog
electro-acoustic music by Barry Schrader. The CD contains ³Trinity² and all
six movements of "Lost Atlantis", music composed in 1976 and 1977 on the
Buchla 200 modular synthesizer in the CalArts electro-acoustic music
studios. The recording was produced and remastered from the original tapes
by film composer Gary Chang and supported by a grant from the Aaron Copland
Fund for Music Recording program. ³Lost Atlantis² is available on Innova
629.

The Lost Atlantis CD will be available at regular and online stores in early
January, and is available now from Innova at

Barry Schrader's Lost Atlantis reveals Schrader as a
composer born to the electronic medium. He paints
with veiled and mysterious tone colors, creates
descending sine-tone scales of exquisite delicacy and
spins out dramatic crescendos climaxing in peaks of
brassy brilliance. He generates sequenced rhythms
with various percussive envelopes: woodlike clacks,
hollow drum sounds, giant xylophones and steel drums.
