Although the two pieces are quite far removed in terms of the time they were written, and also in terms of sound, there are unifying themes which are more than interesting to follow. In Touch (1969) we have a piece of rhythmic off-world electronics, closely related to Subotnick's seminal Silver Apples of the Moon, that possesses Subotnick's superb sense of musical intuition. 'Jacob's Room' (1986), on the other hand, is harder to categorize as it uses vocals and processed instrument recordings to create some kind of bizarre science fiction opera. To listen to both pieces together they instantly sound worlds apart, but it's really only time that separates them, the themes are surprisingly intact and both are engrossing - as is more or less everything from this pioneer.

Morton Subotnick is one of the United States' premier composers of electronic music and an innovator in works involving instruments and other media, including interactive computer music systems. Most of his music calls for a computer part, or live electronic processing; his oeuvre utilizes many of the important technological breakthroughs in the history of the genre. The work which brought Subotnick celebrity was "Silver Apples of the Moon". Written in 1967 using the Buchla modular synthesizer (an electronic instrument built by Donald Buchla utilizing suggestions from Subotnick and Ramon Sender), this work contains synthesized tone colors striking for its day, and a control over pitch that many other contemporary electronic composers had relinquished. There is a rich counterpoint of gestures, in marked contrast to the simple surfaces of much contemporary electronic music, and there are sections marked by very clear pulses, another unusual trait for its time.

Like its predecessor in 1994's Recurring Dreams of the Urban Myth, Wireless draws from the urban environment in assembling dense, disorganized soundscapes of subtle beauty. Unfolding slowly over the course of an hour, Wireless, as its name suggests, utilizes radio waves in combination with treated electronics, with results closer in feel to electro-acoustic experimentalists such as Carl Stone and Morton Subotnick than the warm, often more active ambient the Fax label is known for.

In 1964 at the SanFrancisco Tape Music Center, Pauline Oliveros performed the premiere of her Duo for Accordion & Bandoneon with Possible Myrnah Bird Obligato with David Tudor on bandoneon, Elizabeth Harris providing the choreography, and Laurel Johnson as Ahed the Mynah. During this time, Oliveros also performed in significant works of her contemporaries like Ramon Sender, Morton Subotnick, and Terry Riley. Sender's Desert Ambulance, an intermedia work for accordion, tape, film and light projections was written especially for Oliveros and multimedia artist Anthony Martin. Subotnick involved Oliveros for 150 performances of his music for Bertold Brecht's Caucasian Chalk Circle, written for the Actor's Workshop production at Marine's Memorial Theater in San Francisco, and for the Vivian Beaumont Theater at Lincoln Center, New York City, in 1966. Riley's ground-breaking work, In C for Instruments, was also premiered at the San Francisco Tape Music Center in 1964 with Oliveros on accordion.
