Inside the cover, I quote: In linguistics, morphology is the study of words, how they are formed, and their relationship to other words in the same language. In biology, morphology is the study of the form and structure of organisms and their specific structural features, and (in explaining one of the track titles): Cortical Mitocondria = something to do with "the source of free radicals enhanced by gentamicin". Okay, this is all rather eclectic and obscure, yet this was quite a strange session, with a lot of gremlins in the works, and one that needed considerable post-production to turn it into a cohesive album. I think I succeeded in doing so, with a rather strange one that's largely atmospheric with a lot of sonic mutation.
   Here we tend to feature Dave as the soloist on either flute or hurdy gurdy, with Alan contributing most of the synth and keyboard work, with Steve adding all the other unidentifiable elements. Alan's use of the virtual sampler also strongly features, not least in the use of Mellotron samples in Cortical Mitocondria. So, prepare for a very different Triax, full of things you may expect and many more things that you won't.
