This is the final release in The Hafler Trio's collaborative series with Jonsi Birgisson.

"All material seen, weighed, assigned and conjoined from utterances coaxed and coached via the grace of all of Mr. Jónsi Birgisson. Apprehended by The Hafler Trio at the G*D facility somewhere in the middle of 2005.
Linguistic puzzles endured by A.A.Macdonell & Robert Guillemette."

"These recordings are designed for reproduction through loudspeakers, and in addition, at high volume. Indeed this is so, loud, and in the dark, please. Headphones will not give the intended effects, nor will copying to other compressed formats. Experts agree."

CDs packaged in a die cut oversized package printed on two different types of parchment.
