Artist statement:

"Most tracks on this album are partially composed with irregularized yet rotating processes, built on an unseen and only occasionally heard overarching framework of chord changes or hidden melodies which become the basis for other, contrapuntally arranged melodies and harmonies.

The rotating processes are in some ways similar to didactic musical exercises one could follow to write a canon, however instead of producing shorter staggered repeating lines, the processes create long differentiated yet interrelated lines. Imperfect, drawn out, not quite rounds. sense, one is always hearing a different aspect of the same, often totally hidden, repeating part in a paradoxical state of continual variation.

Further complicating matters, these processes are built on irregularized temporal grids, so there is a deep asymmetry at multiple levels in many of the compositions, both vertically and horizontally.

The sounds that fill up these grids are derived from a variety of processes and sources, such as sine waves, samples of string quartets and percussion instruments, granular synthesis, cassette recording and tape manipulation and other thingsIn some cases I deliberately blurred or made hybrids out of digital and analog sounds. The sounds you hear utilized myriad processes in how they came to be, and how they came. to become.

Other concerns are problematizing, complicating or confusing categories and distinctions such as static vs dynamic, linear vs non-linear, syncopation vs'free' time, and the triple relation between pre-existing forms, formlessness, and the emergence of the new. am also trying to evoke inaudible forces, and model an abstract sonic image of a vital, chaotic world traversed by the forces of capitalism, and various histories and ideologies, as well as the subjective emotional states that one endures in life's quotidian struggles.
