Recorded 5 April 2010 at Tachyon Studio, and then much later remixed,
layered & messed around with by Alan Freeman: 16-29 December 2010.

Alan Freeman: digital electronics, sampling, synths, guitar, etc.
Steve Freeman: analogue electronics, loops, tapes, bass, etc.
Dave Powell: hurdy gurdy, flute, bells, percussion, etc.

It immediately became obvious, when I got down to mixing this session, that the resulting release was going to be a really scary one! And by that I mean: intense, on the edge and powerful. almost disturbingly vivid. Obviously I was going to have to be choosy about what to use and what to discard. There were a lot of sections in the original session where we either languished or stormed on one level, some of use, some not, I chose the best moments, and also isolated all the best pieces that seemed to flow as "compositions" - sprucing up, splicing and editing where necessary, ending up with a tight 40 minute album, after which I reorganised the tracks adding some special effects, reverse and pitch shifted collages, and ended up with what feels like a 51 minute suite (of individual tracks) with pauses.
