Recorded at Tachyon Studio (22 November 2000). Original mix by Jim Tetlow,
with mastering by Alan Freeman at Tachyon Studio (4-5 August 2004).

Alan Freeman: synths, guitar, voice, loops, gadgets.
Jim Tetlow: Sound Canvas, guitar, voice, loops, tapes.
Steve Freeman: synths, guitar, voice, loops, turntable.

In Disfigured Grace: Opens with weird squawks and mutations that flux and ionise, to give way to a vast, swelling, apocalyptic tumult, dense Xenakis like tonalities, with an overdose of echo and reverb effects. Slithy Groves: Opens with processed voice, a Dadaist dismemberment of Lewis Carroll, into Ligeti-esque vocals, into outer-space abstract Hawkwind cum Pink Floyd mutating into early Kluster and grungy guitars. The Organism Consumes Itself: Opens as a serene gliss of intermodulations, into mire of folding and crunching sounds, out of which a huge chorale aum's and ahh's, decaying into an icy tundra populated by swirling decaying symphonic strings and rasping electronic tonalities, vaguely evoking early electronic Stockhausen.
