All material created spontaneously by Triax.
Recorded at Tachyon Studio, Knighton Fields Leicester, 20 August 2006.
A direct digital recording, with mix and collage by Alan Freeman, 21-30 August 2006.

Alan Freeman: guitar, guitar-synth, keyboards, samples, laptop computer, violin, percussion, wind chimes, voice.
Steve Freeman: bass, voice, tapes, loops, turntable, prepared sounds, analogue synths, acoustic CD, cymbal, hacksaw.
Dave Powell: hurdy-gurdy, violin, cello, flute, alto saxophone, trumpet, tenor recorder, oboe, bells, etc.

With Triax becoming a mini-orchestra, this is full of contradictions and unlikely instrumental collisions, with all attempts at musical definition thrown out of the window. So, how about: baroque folk meets electronica head-on, industrial meets classical, synth/meditation meets Tibetan rock at a free jazz concert, Krautrock meets Aboriginal dreamtime? It's possibly all and none of these!

By the way, who out there can identify Steve's vocal tribute to Achim Reichel's
"Die Grüne Reise"? To know what I mean, you'll have to buy the CD - of course!

First edition (quantity not specified) - released ?/12/2006.
