1. Ouroboros 70'00"

+ Tail Snake 10'14" download bonus remix

Recorded at Tachyon Studio, 5 August 2007 and mixed by Alan 14-16 November.

Alan Freeman: guitar, guitar-synth, keyboards, samples, laptop computer, violin, percussion, spring-board, acoustic CD, voice, etc.
Steve Freeman: bass, tapes, loops, turntable, prepared sounds, analogue synths, acoustic CD, cymbal, voice, etc.
Dave Powell: hurdy-gurdy, violin, flute, glockenspiel, etc.

Ouroboros is an ancient alchemy symbol depicting a snake or dragon consuming its own tail, constantly creating itself and forming a circle. Hence the cover!
Aptly "Cycle" does just that, it constantly recycles and consumes itself, over and over in changing combinations, ending how it started! Okay, the idea is similar to our previous 1 track opus "MoebiusStrip" yet the results are quite different as a lot has changed in the Triax sound since 2005, the instrumentation is richer, with more colours and textures, greater dynamics and musical form. It is both the Triax sound in a nutshell and unlike any Triax before it!

The download version of this album also includes a 10 minute remix, especially for those that find 70 minutes in one go too much to take. It's called "Tail Snake".

CD-R - released 12/2007.
Routenote distributed download - released 26/12/2012 / 30/1/2016.
