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.
