Limited edition of 200. Young Scientist was been a Seattle-based improvisational electronic trio consisting of Marc Barreca, James Husted, and Roland Barker. Husted and Barker also recorded as the duo Sequencer People, and released a tape on Engram Records in 1982. Between 1979 and '80, the trio recorded four cassettes of prime electronic music: Life Sciences, Results Not Answers, Over Low Trees..., and Electron Music. All of these tapes were made available via Eurock and extracts of these tapes plus previously unreleased archive material can be heard on this solid compilation LP. Roland Barker also recorded a solo cassette, Vortexes, in 1979, and released The Eternal Optimist in 1982, and James Husted appeared as a member of Audio Letter (with Sharon Gannon and Sue Ann Harkey), and released as K7SS with Danny Eskenazi (one of the founders of Engram Records), who also released many tapes. Barker and Husted also appeared on the Engram's 1981 compilation Seattle Syndrome Volume One, on a Body Falling Downstairs (Husted also appeared with K7SS). Roland Barker was also a member of the highly acclaimed Seattle band The Blackouts and later joined and toured as part of Al Jourgensen's Ministry.
