'…Wave 1 is the first new transmission the world has received from producer Seth Haley since his gloriously futuristic debut album Galactic Melt. That album cataloged the genesis and evolution of Haley’s alter ego Com Truise — the world’s first synthetic/robotic astronaut, as Haley described him — and this EP continues the character’s journey into the outer reaches of the musical multiverse.

Unfortunately however it didn’t last and the subsequent cut in funding and increasing availability of technology such as synths, affected the Workshop’s vitality and viability to the BBC altogether, forcing it’s eventual closure in the 1990’s. The original recordings are now preserved for posterity, but the Radiophonic Workshop’s broader legacy is evident in the continual evolution of electronic music today.
