Alan, Steve & Jim: analogue and digital electronic instruments, guitars, prepared sounds and loops, voice, percussion, cymbals, bells, other objects & toys.

Spring and early Summer 2004 was a time of pure experimentation, some of it worked, some of it didn't, much of it was down-right-weird! So, what to do? Well, here are the results, a mixed-up selection of fragments, sketches and larger works of great diversity, from purely electronic to almost classical avant-garde, other places in between and beyond. Unclassifiable, mind-boggling, and - just curious!

The title was taken from the final words of "Chameleon" written by James Crocker (Twilight Zone episode, directed by Wes Craven).
