Ten and a half hours of uncompromising electronic sound art spanning many years. Absolutely mammoth release! I've only heard about an hour and half of it, and I'm already awed by how incredible this is! Magnificent. Thank you, most generous of badgerstumps.

Hello, just discovered your site last night and found this Acousmatrix re-up post. I downloaded #1,2,5 + 6. Unfortunately none of them will open: they all give me an error saying 'the structure of the file is damaged'. I have tried different 'unpacking' programs and redownloaded a couple with a different browser. Nothing works. Can you suggest anything? Thanks for your help.

Hi Brian

glad you stumbled across us ... i've downloaded these just now and they extracted using 7-zip without an issue. unfortunately, it looks like the issue is at your end.

Thanks, badgerstump, I've got it worked out. I checked out your 7-zip extractor but as I'm on a Mac I looked around and found a Mac compatible extractor that has just done it's thing with the entire set! Still have no idea why my usual extractor worked on the other .7z I found here, but not these! Oh, well, onward and upward!
