This album is really, really good. He's a German minimalist composer, and this is compilation of a bunch of his "Plays" EPs, which were basically covers of stuff that isn't really conducive to electronica--Albert Ayler, Robert Johnson, Cornelius Cardew.

That is all.

you got it wrong it's not covers but music inspired by the artists named in the disc. Cassavetes was a film director and Fichte was a writer.

Anyway, the disc is good even though the sound is different for each artist. my favourites are the john cassavetes tracks, the second one is really amazing.

Bah, my bad. I should have known better than to trust information from the Internet. I was wondering why I'd never heard music by Cassavetes and Fichte.
