Following the reissue of the entire recorded output of South London-based experimental act This Heat and its successor, Camberwell Now, Modern Classics Recordings holds the lens up to a special split album created by one of the driving forces behind those groups – drummer Charles Hayward – in collaboration with Italian musician Gigi Masin, whose looping, rhythmic, electronic compositions have seen his cult following grow in his four decades as a recording artist. 

Originally released on Belgium’s Sub Rosa label in 1989, 'Les Nouvelles Musiques De Chambre Volume 2' is a split LP on which Masin’s eight tracks occupy side A and Charles Hayward’s long-form piece (at 21 minutes long), 'Thames Water Authority', occupies side B. Previously, Masin had released the inspired 1986 album 'Wind', while Hayward’s music had long been influenced by the landscape and society of London and the UK.
