The two stellar reissues of collected Dockstader material on the Starkland label can be separated by their connections to light and darker material. As could be expected, Apocalypse concerns the darker edge. Both the 20-minute title track and the included 10-minute "Traveling Music" cultivate a series of chilling atmospheres with few precedents in the academic electronic community.

Tod Dockstader's second Starkland CD begins with the composer's pulsing, spatially-shifting Traveling Music. He explains some background: "Traveling Music was originally composed as a monaural piece (Electronic Piece No. 8). It was, in effect, my Poeme Électronique, after Varèse, and my first piece to be strictly organized with a few sound-materials (instead of throwing everything in and stirring briskly, as I'd done prior to this). The composer details the disparate elements of this four-part masterpiece: "Apocalypse followed Luna: I wanted to do something heavier, thicker in texture, more unruly and alarming – a concrète Dies Irae. The slowed (creaking) doors and the cat-cry toy are central to it: they provided the threat and despair I wanted.
