Treated sample compositions. That's all of the information about the 5 tracks on this release. It's difficult to pinpoint what, if anything, actually was the original source material. Greg has slowed down, folded, mangled and otherwise mutilated the sounds so much as to make them something completely foreign, something completely other.
And to make this transformation complete, the CDr provides a number of different listening experiences. Played at a normal volume, it is an exercise in new minimalism or lowercase sound where one must intensely listen to the sounds as they unfold and dissipate, but if one turns up the volume.... A new aural situation presents itself. Those sounds that were barely on the edge of hearing come violently to life. The muted burblings and sub-bass harmonics threaten to destroy speakers.
Either way, it's a fun ride. Limited to 145.
