CD2 contains bonus CD+ element with session details and full original recordings in mp3 format. A chance to hear Triax at their most un-produced - warts 'n' all!

...a cycle of music encompassing 2 discs designed for infinite repeat playback, no beginning, no end!...

The original concept was to do a single CD, an infinite flowing recyclable work, unlike any Triax release before, yet the sessions were so successful that the 127 minutes recorded easily made the basis for 2 discs, each just over an hour, adding up to the magical total of 121'21". The key to all this was the use of an unusual instrument, actually 2 wine glasses tuned with different amounts of water, and live processing, resulting in tonalities unheard before and further developed with post production pitch shifting and modulation, all forming the key elements that tie the whole collaged work together. That, and much more use of hurdy-gurdy melodic elements than before, results in the very different Triax experience that is the "MoebiusStrip".
