The LP contains "Music Out Of the Moon" and "Perfume Set To Music" one of the first electonic chillout music composed, originally released in 1947 and 1948 on 10" 78RPM. An unusual mix of different styles and musics represented by the 3 men who contributed to the album: Dr. Samuel J. Hoffman played theremin in several sci-fi and horror movies during the 40s and the 50s, masterpieces as "Spellbound" and "The Day the Earth Stood Sill"... Les Baxter "The Father of Exotica" and his dreams of Pacific and Oriental islands, musical impressions of tropical fantasies. Harry Ravel, english talented composer of musical theater and soundtracks for Hollywood movies. These two records were unique collaborations between three disparate talents, who envisioned a world of sound inspired by science fiction, perfumes, and meditations. Without them the theremin could perhaps never have been considered in a pop context, and project as disparate as "Good Vibrations" and Silver Apples might never have happened. The influence of this music is clear in the multiform artist Sun Ra who covered the song "Possession" in his second LP "Jazz by Sun Ra". Digitally remastered and limited to 300 copies.
