All pieces improvised by randomly selected trios and quartets at Quadelectronic 11, Quad Studios, Leicester, 28th April 2009.
Live sound by Bob Bryars and Chris Conway.
Recorded and mastered by Jim Tetlow.
All titles (except 7) selected from James Blish’s sci-fi omnibus "Cities In Flight".

Quadelectronic is a unique event, that initially grew from gigs organised by Chris Conway at The Musician in 2004 to 2006, then our "Impromptu Electronic" sessions at Bambu in 2007-8, involving local musicians from Chris Conway improv projects: The Planet Scanners and Continuum, along with projects involving the Freeman brothers (owners of the Ultima Thule Record Shop) Alto Stratus, Endgame, Extremities and Triax.

 Hosted by Chris Conway (well-known local musician) & Bob Bryars (Quad Studios). Quadelectronic is a unique inexplicable monthly event. More of a "happening" than a regular gig. An improv, jam, workshop event for those that love to experiment and interact in free improvisation. Open house, within reason, anything can happen. Naturally, the key focus is electronics, although other instruments extensively feature. Performances have ranged from free-form chaos to space-rock to cosmic jazz, to pure synthesizer or avant-garde electronics.

"Cities In Flight" documents one of the finest, and certainly the most consistently great, diverse and creative of events to date. So good in fact that we "had to release it". Funds from the sale of this will be split between UT and Jim Tetlow who is otherwise financing all the recording, editing and duplication out of his own pocket. Good of him, but we know there's bound to be some of you out there that would love to hear this!

First edition (quantity not specified) - released ?/?/2009 - sold-out
