David Borden/Mother Mallard - "Part 8" - Full Length = 8:42

Bouncy minimalist synth patterns lay the foundation, with complementary melody lines and abrupt key changes adding drama and complexity.

Mother Mallard's Portable Masterpiece Company - "Music (1972) (Excerpt #1)" - Full Length = 12:56

After a startling opening sample of a 1950s pop music hit ("put another nickel in") the music charges full speed ahead into an extended up-tempo improvisation for the three keyboards. Lots of interlocking melodic motifs and an overall experimental progressive rock edge, over a pulsing, joyous, mechano-futuristic groove.

Mother Mallard's Portable Masterpiece Company - "Easter (Excerpt #2)" - Full Length = 19:23

A long, slow-developing piece built around rapid-fire, tuned sequencer pulses from a Moog synthesizer, with pulse tones and timbres undergoing continual evolution throughout the piece. The tuned rhythmic pulse supports a wide variety of melodic patterns and motifs contributed by the other synthesized keyboards. The richness and variety of analog electronic sound displayed on this piece is quite extraordinary.
