about

This is an early project that I like enough to make public, but is kind of a secondary release. It was originally going to be a vocal album...kind of a big space opera about an alien species bent on its own self-destruction (like humanity), but the limits of the Fostex 8-Track reel to reel were hit pretty hard by the instrumentals alone, so I decided to keep it instrumental.

I was trying to structure the music and sounds as something that would be made by some odd and alternate sentient species...sort of elevator music from a deranged and warlike species.

It's best used as background music, I have found. I did my best to make it less clangy and noisy that it used to be.
