originally released on Zum records, or by George Chen in some fashion, this long out of print cd features recordings of songs. Electronic, but somehow also suggestive of a kind of folk music. Garage folk. who build new synthesizers out of old radios. Original cover was made of a special sort of material, translucent paper, with a printed grid of images drawn on a spirograph visible as if behind and through the hand-drawn cover image. The third track, Closed Circuit is an early noise exploration, a no-input cross modulation experiment, developed in much detail on later releases. The last track, lndsnd, is representative of the new direction Core of the Coalman would continue to explore in later recordings, in which what is perceived depends largely on where the listener places her or his attention in relation to the gestalt sound mass being presented. This was largely inspired by experiences had with a a backpack along the northern California coast, Point Reyes, in particular. Love on stormy nights. Danger.
