This present release may be one of Rafael Toral's most prolific so far – an unexpected revelation out of the archives of Rafael Toral that gives proof of his early research works in area sonorities and sound. This was more than a present to us - an essential piece that can explain much more where his music is coming from than any lengthy explanations, just listen...
«Having completed "Violence of Discovery and Calm of Acceptance", i found myself drawing a continuous line going back in time some 15 years. These early pieces are at the other end of that line. At the time of recording them, i was far from dreaming i would ever release records at all. I found them of little value then, but under the light of all my following works, from "Sound Mind Sound Body" through "Wave Field" and "Cyclorama Lift" to "Violence of Discovery and Calm of Acceptance", they stand out as having paved the way for all this music. » Rafael Toral, December 2001
