Ian Bonighton (1942-1975) was rapidly gaining recognition not only as a brilliant composer, but also as an outstanding teacher at the time Move's Reverberations was made (now available on CD). He studied at the University of Melbourne and taught there from 1968. In 1972 he was awarded the degree of Doctor of Music in composition, leaving Australia in 1974 to visit European electronic music studios and to secure a lectureship at the University of East Anglia.

Bonighton's music is unfortunately rarely recorded, however Move recorded much of his available work on a (now unavailable) double LP set entitled Sequenza.
