Phaedra is the titletrack from the eponymous album.
The track relies on Christopher Franke's use of the Moog analog sequencer as a substitute for bass guitar and was originally based on an improvisation that happened to be recorded in the studio, and unintentionally exhibits one of the limitations of the analog equipment used at the time. As the equipment warmed up, some of the oscillators began to detune (they were highly temperature-sensitive), which was responsible for some of the changes in the music towards the end of the piece.
