Cat. no: MTM1
Release Date: 30th April 2021
Crammed’s legendary Made To Measure Series of New Music was described at the time as the aural equivalent of a collection of art books.
Charting a map of some of the most interesting instrumental music of the era, thirty-five albums came out between 1983 and 1995, The loose idea behind the title of the series was that it was music which had been or could have been “made to measure” as a soundtrack for film, theatre, dance or video.
The revival of Made To Measure begins with selected reissues of some of the series’ classic early releases, starting with the inaugural volume, Made to Measure Volume 1, the multi-artist album from 1984, containing music created by Minimal Compact, Benjamin Lew, Aksak Maboul and Tuxedomoon for films, theatre plays and dance performances.
