The recordings on this cassette have been selected by AUDINT from archival material they hold of their former member Nguyễn Văn Phong. Side A, recordings from 1958-1960, features tape experiments with recorded funeral rites, and gong loops produced with his yin Yang turntable. Side B consists of recordings from 1972-1979. It includes his early attempts to engage algorithms to decrypt atemporal signals transmitted through the 3rd ear; information that could be repurposed as forecasting data for Văn Phong's financial consultancy, IREX.
