about

This album isn't perfect.

01. Human is for Rachel, to help her sleep.

02. P3TAL is for Alexandernaut, for creating the killer app that made this track possible. (alexandernaut.bandcamp.com/album/alexandernaut)

03. fSpace is for AWAL, who will make me rename songs 2 and 3 to publish them on iTunes because we still live in the 80's and improper capitalization crashes their computers. Even "iTunes" isn't properly capitalized... Oh, and about AWAL...

The distortion on fSpace is intentional, because it reminds me of the first time I watched 2001: A Space Odyssey on a crappy little TV with one speaker, and I thought the damn thing was going to explode. I hope your speaker doesn't explode. I do however, hope AWAL's speaker explodes when they review this album with the properly capitalized tracks.

04. "Shut Up! This is important." is for all of us. It's about the technonoise that has invaded every aspect of our modern lives. What we see, what we hear, how we communicate. We have to tune out so much just to catch a glimpse or a whisper of life. Stop staring at the screen and stare into someone else's eyes for a few minutes. It's amazing.
