(No Mains Power Was Used In The) Process

Each track was recorded live on a separate day from a minimum of three input sources. Lighting was either by candle or a wind-up LED lamp (as seen in Track #1); Non-musical audio sources were captured from the Kaito wind-up unit; All audio was recorded initially on MiniDisc, both in original ATRAC and finally LinearPCM, using AA batteries, with the exception of audio captured live on camera. Samples are from far-ranging sources, but reflect my life in recent months. Details of samples used are included within the YouTube playlist.

Listening style

An OOPS System is highly recommended!
