368 songs with the word sad in the title mixed into one song created by using various Gnutella powered search engines and the keyword sad to download 368 songs with the word sad in the title off the internet. The mp3 files were next carefully layered one on top of the other in a digital audio program. Individual files were not altered and defined only by the digital strength and compression of each mp3 file. The mixing process was both rigorous and mathematical so that no one tune would take priority over another. Songs were equally mixed in pairs of two, by cross-fading the audio in both directions and equally filling left and right channels.
Record published between with two rounded printed sheets. One is a text based digital print that lists the sad song titles in a continuous repeating spiral.
