TRANSPARENT ILLUSION was
the brainchild of Roy Young (a pseudonym), hailing from Haverhill, Suffolk, UK. Equipped with just one synthesiser and a drum
kit, he entered Octopus Studios, located in Stowupland, Suffolk, and run by Dave Hoser, in 1980/81 to record the
ultimate minimal electronic music album. The original vinyl album “Still Human”
and the single “Vortex” were released on Roy’s own label Vex Records but only a few copies
managed to sell. The album has been carefully remastered from an original vinyl
copy by Stefan Bornhorst (aka The Silicon Scientist). Two original demo
recordings from 1980 have been added: “Concepts” and “Vortex”, which were taken
off the original master tape by courtesy of Nicolas Delbarre and Dave Hoser.
The artwork was accurately adapted from the original album by Steve Lippert.
