This was an album I originally wrote in January 2000. The first sketches came together during a day off work (from excessive snow, naturally). This was one of the first things that I wrote in Buzz that felt like I was getting a handle on something more than just beat-oriented stuff. The source materials include some samples I found on mp3.com and some drawings from early blogs that I ran thru Metasynth. All of that has been gone from the internet for almost a decade. Track 5 was improvised in one take and remains one of my favorite noise / drone pieces. The title of track 1 is the punchline to an inside joke I've forgotten. The piano sample is from the opening of the last movement of Beethoven's "Hammerklavier" sonata.
