Ian Helliwell

This performance piece, based around a new electronic composition created by Ian Helliwell where his self-built tone generating equipment Hellitrons and Hellisizers generate all the sounds in the 3 sections. The music has been transferred to quarter inch magnetic tape, to be played back in a large loop through an open reel tape recorder.
