Notes

“All true language is incomprehensible, like the chatter of a beggar’s teeth.” Antonine Artaud Consistency Nature is the work of Christopher Arnett and revolving collaborators/engineers, formally working under the nom de plume Dishdawash. The songs on this compilation were created and distributed over the course of almost 7 years, reworked, remastered and remixed in order to give a reflective conclusion of this project of my late adolescence unto adulthood.
I dedicate this album and the entire project to all of the homeless women and men suffering from mental illness.

My gratitude to Arnaud Barbe, Adam Crammond, Kai Nobuko, Cameron Thomson, Thomas Park, Evgenij V Kharitonov, Thomas Baragona, Daniel Wymark (Ploof), Mandie Jones (Calypso Bizaar), Jukka Pekka Kervinen, Alex Ischenkau, Sean Derrick Cooper Marquardt, Saren Meserkhani, Samuel Samson, Nuno Maltez, Samuel Bone, Graham Boosey, Shaun Phelps, Roro Perot, Cesar Naves, Jared Balogh, Tommasso Bussato, Laetitia Schteinberg, Kevin Baragona, Sawney Arnett, Hal McGee, Matt Casey, Zach Grotowsky, Patrick RedSK Doyal, Alex Spalding, Gus Remolten (R.I.P.), Andreas Brandal, Rosendo J. Rocha, Brut Brut, Miachal Szewczynski, Chuck Hoffman, our fine hosts in Tibol, the Netherlands, David Meidinger, for collaborating with me, for releasing my work on your netlabels, for inspiring me through your works, for encouraging and supporting my music where others showed indifference or scorn, for being such pillars in the Netlabel community. Lastly I give special thanks to my father, Bryant Arnett, for teaching me how to listen.
