about

Follow-up electronic album to ENDANGERED. One take, one shot live recordings of improvisations on hardware and software synthesizers + via 88-key midi controller into garageband; back to basics (low budget, making ultimate use of lack of and purely available resources). Also features live one take zheng (long zither) improvisations. All improvised original works except Frozen Springs Foretold, arranged for synths -- inspired by a tiny excerpt of an unknown traditional Chinese er-hu fiddle piece I learned by ear when I was a child.
