Track one is a composite recording from WNUR own mix and my edirol r-09 that I set on the table next to me while I performed in their studio.

the remaining tracks are isolation mixes of what I captured on the laptop during the live set. in the studio the laptop was amplified on through the Vox (top amp in photo). I dont think it did a great job of what was going on so I've gone back and made a few tracks using only these loops. Some minor editing and mixing was done in post.

"The loops created are haunting, ambient, deep, and will take your soul on a dreamscape journey. It’s melodic, loud and yet gentle, and beautiful." -- Nick Hadad @ Tuning in Obscure
