“Putting this album together was a long process of elimination. Choosing from about 18 songs and a few years of work, I decided to turn away from any computer related cut ups or music made using software. I wanted to keep only those artifacts created out of found equipment and basic electronic devices. This tape was put together with recordings made from tapes, home made synthesizers, vintage drum machines, record players & video game consoles.”
