Conductor 22:47


2 rare historical recordings (1983 and 1986) originally released as single sides and gathered here for the first time.

"Conductor might be my favourite composition and Life & Death Of Pboc might be my most sincere. Conductor was my first composed piece with no obvious reference points ... Life & Death Of Pboc was the second. These two compositions gave me the title Godfather of Dark Ambient."

Limited 300 copies Black Vinyl
