Performer, composer, arranger, producer and engineer: Chris Hanzsek
Originally recorded in 1985.

"The pieces were created as structured improvisations using a monophonic synth (primarily)
along with a Yamaha DX7 (borrowed from a friend) and possibly a guitar.
Recording was made on an older Otari MX-5050 1/2” 8 track. Mixing was done on a Tascam
M-50 console and a Revox A77 1/4” machine.
I recall the project happened in two bursts: I did half of it in September '85, then I finished up
and edited the album together in December '85. I don’t really recall making copies for anyone. I
think I played it for a dozen people and that was it. Just forgot about it.
I remember Jeff Ament from Pearl Jam (Green River back then) came by while I had it playing
on my home stereo. He asked what it was and said he liked it. Surprised me a little.
With regard to overall aesthetic:
I like the sound of machinery, but I enjoy the fragility of human error and human instinct. I like to
put things into motion then climb aboard and drive. I can’t play an instrument (in the classical
sense) for the life of me, so I’ve always just played things that are mostly choice rather than a
convolution of style and technique. I guess you call that the Brian Eno school of rock."
