The Hub :  Boundary Layer
Cat. # 8050-3
Released Apr 2008
US Price $30.00
A new recording by the band that pioneered laptop ensembles over twenty years ago coupled with an historic overview of their recordings, unreleased tracks and video clips of the band in performance. Functioning in the West Coast tradition of composer as instrument builder—redefining music from the ground up—The Hub makes music using electronic and digital systems of their own devising. A natural extension of the late 1970’s ensemble the League of Automatic Music Composers, the group has performed worldwide over the past two decades and continues to break new ground in the ever-growing laptop medium.

This is the definitive document of this important west coast collective and contains recordings covering three decades of activity. Most of this material is being issued here for the first time, much of it has been unavailable for years, and all of it is some of the most imaginative and compelling electronic music ever made. This specially priced 3 CD set includes a deluxe booklet with photos, technical diagrams and written testaments by group members and collaborators giving new insights and historical perspective to one of the most infamous electronic ensembles since Musica Elettronica Viva.
