The four works on this recording were composed by Jon Appleton using a digital synthesizer he helped develop, namely the Synclavier. The Synclavier is a perfomance instrument although the first piece on this recording, the sweet dreams of miss pamela beach was a 'studio' piece. The twenty-four track studio, Elektronmusikstudion Stockholm, was used to layer the musical material.  SashasonjonKapingamarangi and Nukuoro were perfomed live, as they would be in concert, by the composer. Most of the material is performed directly although some small sections and accompaniments are contained in the digital memory of the instrument at the time of performance.

Originally released in 1982
