What you have here are two 45-minute compositions, performed entirely on the world's cheapest sampler (the lo-fi SK-1). The sounds are all panned hard left and hard right and are usually smothered in reverb.

This could be painfully boring but somehow it isn't...it's wonderful! The samples fit perfectly together and there is enough variety to sustain the project all the way through. It's a bit disorienting on headphones if you listen closely for very long, but I don't think this was intended for close listening...just let it happen.

On a final note, the packaging is beautiful.
