2. Oceanic Voice - R.S. Pearson - 1:22

3. Neverlent (Night Commute) - Carl Juarez - 4:43
A resetting of 'Siren of Impeachment' (from the Sonicabal I compilation) against a Can-like rhythm cycle. The lead vocal is a prominent American politican speaking about 'heroin chic.' Thin plates of stainless steel as they float through the sky are bent/taut and bowed. Drums generated with Virtual Drummer and placed via North Pole, electric bass improvised direct to Performa 6500 (first and only take). Assembled and mixed in Pro Tools.

4. Clangish_01 - Toby Paddock - 4:06
Hanging metal things with DIY piezo disk contact mics. Radio Shack mixer; minidisc. As recorded. No effects or EQ, but could use some.

5. I Will Rock You Personally - Xaxis Wye - 2:45

6. Nimbus [live @ 5lowershop] - XI S IX - 5:00
8/30/03 - San Francisco, CA * great white shark attack/whiskey/drumkit+shouts/Akira wig/wheelchair/fragment/billiards/angel/passionfruit tapioca pearl tea

7. Autumn House Lock-out - R.S. Pearson - 3:33

8. User16 (excerpt) - Toby Paddock - 6:31
Casio CTK-631 family home keyboard default preset 'user 16' with Alesis Wedge for 4 second delay. The preset is a piano that crossfades to cheesy strings. Gratuitous use of pitch wheel. As recorded in one pass to cassette in 2000.

9. Nagapple - Carl Juarez - 5:08
In a process sense a reversal of 'Neverlent.' Samples of percussionist Yaya Diallo cut up into a rhythmic grid with stochastically-generated microtonal virtual prepared/toy piano and effects overlaid. There is no guitar. Assembled and mixed in Nuendo. Memories of happy tribal bathtub times are evoked hypothetically.

10. Road Hog - Xaxis Wye - 5:32

11. Submission - Crunk Posby - 1:46

12. I + eye + I [live @ 5lowershop] - XI S IX - 2:29
8/30/03 - San Francisco, CA * domino/ganja/night/wet rocks/Korea/rafter aerobatics/circuit-bent/overcome obstacles/wasteland/bus/sincere heart

13. Summer Winds - R.S. Pearson - 19:30

14. Comp Info - Toby Paddock - 1:33
Comp info webpage url and mindless chatter as read by Mr. Sonic Blue Animation Station. Ages 8+. Batteries not included. (that generic computer voice you hear everywhere) Tweaked with Soundforge XP. Background is an excerpt of 'But Does It Have To Be So Screechy?' from mid 1980s. Arp Odyssey and modified Radio Shack Reverb straight to cassette. This is from a low bandwidth mp3 because that's the only copy I could find.

Notes, musings, and excuses:
There are some ticks, pops, and noises I can't spell sprinkled around in there. I don't know where they came from, but go ahead and blame me and I'll blame my computer. Track 13 is pretty long for a comp, but Robert didn't specifically submit it. He gave me a cd of stuff and I liked the track and there was room and so there it is. Tracks 5 and 10 were played from cassette with an old walkman because my cassette deck died. I've heard people say they sometimes like the sound of an old cassette and now I do to. Tracks 7 and 11 were mp3. Overall level of some tracks was changed, but no other processing.
