In 1976 Synthesizer gurus Richard Bugg and Cal Grant performed one tune at the Friends Records Jazz Festival, titled "Piece One" which lasted about 20 minutes. At the end of the set, the crowd went silent and seemed to be stunned. As soon as the crowd began to applause the duo realized that the audience appreciated their music and the group began to perform regularly as The Contemporary Synthesizer Ensemble. A friend of Richard's said the name was pretentious and they soon were dubbed COSMIC DEBRIS. The name came from the idea of NASA's tracking of space junk in orbit that is left over from space missions. They released two albums: "3.7 K" in 1980 and "While You're Asleep" in 1981.
