general description of the work :
the recordings are highly memory-annihilated edits of a mediation on the work of satyajit ray's apu trilogy, created initially
for patrick mcginley's framework radio. a further reworking of this music began in the logic editing system, where a
slow-duplication was instituted in order to create a more stereo-rich listening experience. soon discovered was a plethora of
glitching errors. these glitching dreams were then augmented and purified in the tradition of john cage.
in addition to these "chance procedures", a touch of immobility, abstractions and layerings was added underneath to release the
music further from its maker. after all this nonsense, the mix was found to be a pleasantly disorienting experience.
this work is dedicated to my love chi and our puppy leviathan
leviathan gave me these words of inspiration which one can find in
paradise lost massacré
"infinite Vale. through the vast and scornful deep, tossing fiery waves of dire hope, what sea-beast Leviathan that piloted
the ocean storm, and burned lakes contrary to his own dark designs, he doth obscure mercy and continues on his dusky air.
praise Leviathan: the one who modifies Time and Light to drive us hence."
