Liner notes include programme notes.

A series of frankly experimental pieces exploring ideas of timbral modification, noise, time-stretching, sound modulation, digital low tech, translation of hand movements into sound, extended just intonation, massive microtonal clusters of very closely spaced electronic waveforms, layering of natural sounds to create a kind of 'granular' synthesis, and psychoacoustic phenomena.

These works produced with financial assistance from the American Composers Forum; Centre for Contemporary Music, Mills College; Newsense Intermedium, Tacoma; Australian Centre for the Arts and Technology, Canberra; Arts Victoria; and the Australia Council.
