Gentle Fire

Gentle Fire was first played on NTS on 30 April 2021. Songs played include Group Composition IV.

Gentle Fire was a group of performers / composers of electroacoustic music formed in 1968, and it consisted of Richard Bernas, Hugh Davies, Graham Hearn, Stuart Jones and Michael Robinson. The group has performed works by Karlheinz Stockhausen, John Cage, Christian Wolff, Earle Brown and others. They were interested in finding ways to combine instrumental action with live electronic variation, which they explored through "group compositions" of their own, often utilizing self-conceived and self-made instruments.
