Barry Schrader: EAM

Electronic composer Barry Schrader was drawn to music many years ago by the possibility of creating "something imagined, not recalled." Schrader found his voice in electronic music, where he’s created musical worlds by manipulating the timbre or qualities that color sound and make instruments distinct. This recording collects various pieces composed between 1986 and 2000.
