Released in 2007 on 5" and 3" cd-r and re-issued in 2011 on cd-r.

I made this batch of songs while I was in graduate school at San Francisco State University for Social Work. I was heavily into Merzbow, John Wiese, and a few other folks at the time... But, aside from the obvious noise influences, I was also influenced by Bartok's string quartets. I essentially tried to make "chamber noise music." As a general rule there are four or five tracks of guitar feedback specifically arrange in a very thought out manner. None of what you hear is by chance. I spent hours arranging these pieces to sound the way they do.


released January 1, 2008

Recorded and arranged by Monte Cimino in San Francisco, CA 2007 with special guest Josh Martin on basstronics and throat.
