Track one is layers of field recordings done in Lawrence, KS. We were staying out in the middle of nowhere with some family. Really beautiful sounds everywhere. I happened to wake up in the middle of the night to an amazing thunder storm, and in a sleep haze I stumbled down the stairs and began recording. Added recordings done during the day of the birds chirping, and bugs making their weird noises. Occasionally a hummingbird zips past the microphones.

On track two the rain was captured from my balcony. Added are electronic and found sounds. Lots of tape manipulation. Been playing with an older four track cassette recorder, a dummy's head with binaural microphones attached, and subliminal tapes.

This is an anniversary gift for my wife Katy.
