Performed as just four sessions - that may sound like they are fragmented/shattered,
blurred/dissolved, then reassembled - but basically all I did was take the
eleven sections that stood up as tracks (and did the usual minor remixing and
balancing of levels, plus a few cross-fades and splices, reverb tails,
dynamic effects, etc, etc.) and then shuffled them into the best order. The
resultant "sound pictures" range from the nightmarish through to
blissfully serene, from unmusical through to strangely musical hybrids of
folk (kind of) and industrial ooze, whatever it is - no one's thought of a
name for it yet! All the titles are culled from a Robert Sheckley surreal
