Tracks 1 & 2 are a stereo mixdown from the live 4-channel setup.
Tracks 3 & 4 use audio from the live session and extra mixing in of samples saved to my laptop during the live session.

This was part of ESS 2013 Oscillations series. This same evening Bill Mackay w/ Matt Lux also performed. They have uploaded their set here:
