First full-length LP from the Columbus, OH musician, improviser and sound artist after collaborating with a diverse array of folks such as Greg Kelley, C. Spencer Yeh, Nate Wooley, Christine Sehnaoui, Bhob Rainey, Jandek, Mike Shiflet, Envenomist, Larry Marotta, Vic Rawlings, Fossils, Rafael Toral, Psychedelic Horseshit, Pink Reason, Jason Zeh, Wasteland Jazz Unit, and many more. Side A is one long stereo-melting, ear-bending composition that evokes the best sense of surprise of harsh cut-up noise, except with organic sounds manipulated with some Pierre Henry level finesse, compiled from about 9-10 years of material including early tape experiments, live recordings, unreleased new material, re-edited previously released material, Hi-fi, low-fi, etc. Recorded in Ohio, in a creek in West Virginia, as a teenager in a car while on the country music highway in Kentucky, in the middle of a street in New Zealand - heavily spliced and edited with razorblades and mouse clicks into the form of the composition. Side B focuses on deep drones, long tones wrought with patience and intensity from a lone drum - a kind compliment to the frenzy of the first half. Mastered by Bhob Rainey, with art by Dylan Nyoukis. 300 Copies, pro-printed art
