clarifications/errata: Gong Matrices emerged out of the 1999 Progressive Music Festival in San Francisco. I'm not sure if all the musicians involved (Pierce McDowell, James Rotondi, Aryeh Frankfurter and Stephen Junca) are San Francisco-based, but most of them seem connected to the city's musical life. Yes, the Robert Wyatt piece "Unmasked" was originally a collaboration with Chris & Cosey (a.k.a. Carter Tutti) on their 1988 album Core. Mont Campbell studied French horn (and composition) at the Royal College of Music, not the Royal Academy. The bassoonist responsible for composing that mid-70s British children's TV music I was reminded of was Vernon Elliott (1912-1996). I mistakenly said "News For Babel" instead of "News From Babel". I forgot to mention that former Henry Cow member Geoff Leigh is in both Artaud Beats and Jump For Joy!, a major oversight — sorry, Geoff (I also confusedly mixed up the name of the latter band with the name of the album, Bat Pullover). Dr. Yumi Hara Cawkwell indeed teaches at the University of East London. Peter Zummo is actually a well-established American composer — please forgive my ignorance! Yes, Föllakzoid are a trio, but that EP was called EP rather than being self-titled, and wasn't their debut. And they've done several albums since. The Battleship, Ethel were from Hamilton, Ontario. Zacht Automaat are a Toronto-based duo, half of which is Carl Didur who was the keyboard player in TB,E.
