Operating Theatre - The Early Years 2 x CDs

SKU 05-SIDO 020-21CD
“The Early Years collection has been released to celebrate the 25th anniversary of the founding of the music-theater company, Operating Theatre, by composer Roger Doyle and performer Olwen Fouere. Operating Theatre has been active in two phases: the first from 1981 to 1988, and the second from 1998 to 2008. This double-CD set celebrates the first phase, during which the company operated as both a theatre company, integrating music as an equal partner in the theatrical environment, and as a band releasing records.”

"Many of the pieces here wouldn't be out of place on a really good minimal synth or cold wave comp, but Doyle's compositional background keeps the music from ever being too one dimensional. There are hints of minimalism, the theatricality of Slapp Happy, the studio inventiveness of David Cunningham's Flying Lizards, all combined with the emotional austerity of Robert Wyatt's early-'80s work."-Other Music
