Sharing social circles and spiritual ideologies with artists such as Iasos,Connie Demby and Deuter, whilst splitting label release schedules withLaraaji, Laurie Spiegel and Wendy Carlos, the unique Florida raised soul mateduo known as Emerald Web released their privately pressed debut LP at anaxis where post-prog rock met proto-new age and ambient electronic music.At the turn of the 1980s Bob Stohl and Kat Epple embarked on a ten-year spiritualjourney playing at planetariums and laser shows above the sameCalifornian silicon city that devised the early computer music software, unifyingtheir state of the art modular synth soundscapes and organic compositionsof flutes, bells and field recordings and furnishing a self-pressed cassettetapeography of inimitable Emerald Web music for their self-funded Stargatelabel. Having first communicated via the medium of music as flute players ata South Florida jam session the future space music luminaries would be instrumentalin assisting synthesiser companies via feedback and consultancy indeveloping instruments such as the Lyricon wind synth (favoured by SuzanneCiani and Bruno Spoerri) and various sponsored machines for Arp, Buchla,EML, Computone and Orchestron. Named after a laser show formation andcombining influences from science fiction films, fantasy novels and a broadmusical spectrum including Tangerine Dream, Vangelis, It's A Beautiful Dayand Goro Yamaguchi, Bob and Kat would balance day jobs as synth programmersas well as TV and film soundtrackers under the moniker BobKatProductions (counting microscope nature documentarian Carl Sagan amongsttheir clients) with evening synthesiser shows at galleries, spiritual centres andeven punk clubs. This compilation album comprises early tracks from EmeraldWeb’s debut vinyl release and the following four rare cassette only albums onStargate Records from 1979-1982 before the band recorded their bestselling(and Grammy nominated) albums for labels affiliated with Germany’s Kuckuckand Larry Fast before Bob Stohl’s sad and untimely death in 1989.Taken from original master tapes and recorded using revolutionary and prototypalmusic technology many of these tracks have never been on vinyl or CDuntil now. Finders Keepers are proud to have worked closely alongside KatEpple as part of an ongoing Emerald Web/BobKat archival project makingthese important early electronic/organic musical hybrids available for fans ofambient krautrock, electronic soundtracks, musique concrete,
