Rare 1981 Original With Booklet. β€œThe Mnemonists Are Part Of Long-Standing And Somewhat Mysterious Artistic Collective Based In Ft. Collins, CO. In The Late '80s, The Mnenomist Name Was Permanently Attached To The Visual Artists In The Collective, With The Name Biota Assigned To The Musical Element. In 1984, However, It Seems That This Distinction Had Yet To Be Made. Five Musicians Are In This Early Version Of The Group, Supported By Two Occasional Vocalists Who Also Happen To Be Responsible For Some Of The Visuals. Conventional Instrument β€” Such As Saxophone, Clarinet, Double Bass, Viola, And Piano β€” Are Employed, As Well As Shawm And Crumhorn, Two Ancient Horns Used In Renaissance Music.

Almost Everything Recorded By The Two Groups Is Disorienting To One Degree Or Another, With Heavy Use Of Unidentified And/Or Treated Sounds, And Quite Often A Muffled Quality, As If Coming At The Listener From A Great Distance, Or Perhaps Underwater.
