about

While the Korg Volca Sample does play a fairly prominent role per the trip-hop beats I programmed, the album is largely dominated by layer upon layer of my electric bass and a wide array of effects pedals that I had (sound retainers, multiple pitch shifters, etc.). At the time, I desperately wanted to mutate my electric bass the way that Jon Hassell mutates his trumpet. I never achieved anything quite so alien, but I guess I did intermittently make my bass sound like a strange synth or guitar (once or twice, perhaps, a passing resemblance to a glockenspiel).

Like This Old Heart of Mine, it's freeform improvisations that went straight to tape; as well as originally being released under a different moniker. Beyond that, the two albums don't sound anything alike.
