I haven't heard a lot of good music that was released in 1980 but this wonderful library record from the Telemusic label is an exception. Sauveur Mallia's "Automation" could be loosely described as electronic mood music, at times the tracks are sombre and contemplative ( "Future Cosmic", "Blue Laser" ) while there is also a playfulness that resonates through works such as "Baby Robot" and "Electronic Jogging". What strikes me the most about this collection is how well it has aged, suggesting that a lot of what Sauver created was ahead of its time. "Automation" is a good companion piece to the equally competent "Cosmosynthetic Vol.1" which you can download here.

Is this anything like the BGM to those videos we used to watch in school or on those nature/science shows from the 80's?

Mr. Craig said...

I would probably say yes. It certainly has a doco style feel to it.

I'm all for it. The 70's through the early 80's had some of the most interesting music ever produced.
