1) 64.128.64:
A reworking of John Cage's 4'33. These are the sounds my studio makes when no sound is produced, amplified. It is called 64.128.64 because the traditional structure of a electronic dance music piece is 64 bar drop, 128 bars, 64 bar second drop. I recorded it in 3 movements like the original composition. The piece is played at 180 bpm, the tempo I instinctively start work on tracks at.

A alternate version of this piece is to be played live in a club or at a rave. The performer opens their laptop at the start of each movement and closes it at the end of the movement. The crowd and output of the sound system are recorded. I have never preformed this version due to fears of getting the crap beaten out of me.

2) The Unknown Masterpiece:
I felt like fucking up a perfectly good tune.

The plan was to overwork it so much it is unlistenable to.

Somewhere underneath the many layers of paint their is a beautiful tune now lost forever.

This piece is inspired by the Balzac's short story The Unknown Masterpiece.

3) Slow Jam (Clown In A Meatgrinder).

This track is sort of a joke in response to breakcore / gabba super dark grim out tunes and conceptual noise bollocks (like the above)
