Almost all the sounds used in this piece are recordings of unwanted noise produced by my very old, rather rusty Korg MS20, an old patch-cable analogue synth with an amazing processing section often used by electronica artists to manipulate drum sounds.

The music follows pseudo-fractalline principles: once I had composed the basic structure I rendered several recordings of the skeletal piece and then played these as instruments over it; because of this, several of the short melodic sounds you hear are in fact variations of the entire song playing within itself.

For some reason I elected to include a ten second guitar noodle at the end.
