I was just trying to do work while playing "Bye Bye Butterfly" from Pauline Oliveros' album Electronic Works. Seems the sonic assault from the oscillators piqued my cat's interest, who leapt up on the stereo then stared in every corner of the room looking for the source of the sound. Not sure if he enjoyed it or not (the orchestrated bit certained startled the little bugger), but it certainly excited him for the 8 minutes it was on.
Though the three tracks on the album are very different approaches to exploring tape music, this latter track is likely the most listenable. The others, clocking in at approximately thirty minutes each, are more drawn out experiments that likely require quality headphones to be appreciated.
