Errol H Tout a musician/architect from Perth, released this album
Sounds of Swimming in 1987. I remember hearing it on 4zzz at the
time and being very impressed. Ambient, mostly instrumental guitar
music is how I'd describe this, very nice. I ripped this from a friends
copy, I doubt you would find this very easily,
I assume it was a very limited release.
Errol now days is a full time lecturer in the Department of
Architecture,Faculty of the Built Environment Art + Design at the
Curtin University of Technology in Western Australia.
However he worked for many years as a musician,
he has released many albums of original music,
produced albums for other artists, written film soundtracks,
appeared on a number of compilation albums,
performed extensively around Australia
and even composed music for orthopaedic surgery videos.
These are his major releases.
