Nice groove. I dig it.

Hanging on my closet, I have a sticker for Narraganset beer and a mock-road-sign reading "Dystopia" with an arrow pointing both directions. The juxtaposition was unintentional, but I decided I liked it.

The Dystopia name works here. It sounds like the sort of song that would play the first day after the end of the world in some eight bit chip-tune reality. It's kind of bittersweet.

An unlicensed Castlevania knockoff rush-released in 1986, Demon Fate Nosferatu Castle is now chiefly remembered for its extremely repetitive soundtrack, a short theme that would be looped continuously throughout gameplay. An urban legend had it…

This song isn't actually connected to Castlevania at all - It's just that as I was writing it, it started to remind me of the games, so I decided to make up the above fake backstory.

"Fake Evil' was a working title that ended up becoming the real title - the reasoning was that the music was too over-the-top to actually be ominous. The vocals are bits of "Microwave" run backwards, put through a heavy amount of echo and reverb…

I use Cool Edit Pro 2.1 to record and mix down. It has a delay feature called "premonition" that puts the echo before the source. Anyway, this recording is FAR OUT! I like the results of your process. Very groovy.

For whatever reason, I was testing my microphone with the television going on in the background, and a bit of clearly audible dialogue ("all right, get in line") ended up at the end of my test recording. I don't believe in mistakes, especially…

I adored the music to Castlevania IV. But it was the only one in the series I played, so I didn't recognize this track. But I would really enjoy hearing the music of IV again. Are you familiar with any of that?

An experiment with recording keyboard improvisations and running them through Paul's Extreme Sound Stretch. Orchestra X-7 was just the seat I was assigned at a concert once.

Another drone experiment - a slowed down harmonica improv with a lot of added echo, reverb, wah wah, and tremolo.

The bell-like instrument that starts this off is actually a steel pan being pitch-shifted to different notes.

Not sure what genre this is in, other than "noisy". I also don't think it's finished, I'm just throwing up what I've got thus far.

The coda of this was recorded on my mp3 player while waiting for a train. At some point I had this idea that there would be ambient noise recorded from train or bus stations every few songs so it'd sort of feel like you were listening to the whole…

I'm proud to say this is one of the weirdest songs I've ever done. I got some more use out of the beer bottle here, this time hitting it with a pencil instead of blowing on it.

Of the whole album, this is the track I had most fun making. The instrumentation consists of accordion, beer bottle, work desk, toy keyboard, whistling, and scissors.
