A snippet of interfering FM radios, modified and manipulated. A dawn chorus somewhere in the ether. All of the gaps are intentional.

Made from a section deleted from Upper Atmosphere, run through noise reduction then stretched. There were lots of very long gaps (up to 30 seconds and more) between sound events so added some acoustic guitar over top (Acoustic Guitar with Electronic…

Pink noise setting on Mini-Moog that seems to be malfunctioning slightly (sweeping sounds shouldn't happen). Effected by running it through noise reduction, the profile of which was taken from sounds of a tenor saxophone. Right channel is a reverse…

Playing a pair of cracked cymbals with a soft vibes mallet. Different approaches each time (unaltered and mallet head, small metal tin lids to alter sound, playing using mallet handle). Only post alteration is some noise reduction.

Improv on clarinet, playing on some ideas that came from pieces currently being worked on by some members of the Toronto Improvisor's Orchestra. As the title implies, this is shorter than it would've been due to an interruption by a Facebook call…
