Savant - The Neo-Realist (At Risk) (1983)

An album of instrumental art rock constructed one piece at a time, meaning that, while many artists contributed to the record, they generally weren't allowed to hear each other's work while tracking their parts, which was done to a click track and based on verbal instructions. It was then pieced together by Canadian experimental musician and project mastermind K. Leimer. More important, though, is that, outside of this intriguing conceptual framework, it's a surprisingly musical, texturally evocative, melodically warped revelation of a record.

Track listing:
1. Using Words
2. Indifference
3. Realist
4. Shadow in Deceit
5. The Shining Hour
6. Knowledge and Action
7. Heart of Stillness
