Recorded by Andrew Miller during my first-ever live appearance at 'Top 10 Records' during a torrential downpour in Dallas, Texas. Thank you to Ernesto Montiel for the gracious invite.

Much of this piece was improvised using MFOS kit / suitcase synthesizer, semi-modular Arturia synthesizer, and whatever pedal effects at 'Rock 'n Roll Rentals' looked particularly intriguing. Additional choral, percussive and tonal material was de-composed on computer.

The vocal portions that you hear are intended for use in "I Aspire Only To Silence," my perpetually in-progress audio adaptation of Felix Feneon's classic and singular work of true crime poetry, "Novels In Three Lines." Vocal contributions were provided by CM von Hausswolff, Rachael Arrighi, Rod Summers and Leif Elggren, part of an ever-growing cast of participants. A somewhat final form of this piece was finally auditioned courtesy of the Austin New Music CoOp in 2019.
