Notes

Recorded live at Penburn Labs, Winston-Salem, NC 23 May 2007. Cover photo taken in 1990 beside the Charles River, Nonantum, MA.

"Mass wasting is the geomorphic process by which rock, soil and other detritus move downslope under the force of gravity. It can take place over the course of seconds or many years and has been observed on land, under water and on other planets. There are several types with distinct characteristics, four of which I've used as titles for the works on these discs. Although I'm making no attempt at presenting aural evocations of these phenomena, I find the processes to be apt analogies for the sort of 'circuit erosion' that takes place on each of these extemporisations."
