Concept 1, composed by Richie Hawtin, marked a yearlong correlation between musical development and the progression of time. The original series (1996) of 12 monthly twelve-inch singles comprised of 24 tracks, strictly limited to 2000 copies per release, was a timely musical emission of that moment. Before the compiled CD release of Concept 1 96:CD in February 1998, Thomas Brinkmann (Cologne, Germany) visited Windsor to play Hawtin some of his "Variations" of Concept 1. The results unfolded a new structure from the original material, exposing a new side of Hawtin's compositions.
