Touch25 compiled in London between Oct 2005 + Jan 2006. Mastered in Jan-Feb 2006 with thanks to all the contributors since the start / and to Jan, Josef and Pavel in Prague for April 13.

Track 1 - Recorded next to a shed on the southwest coast of the island of Gotland during an icy stay at the end of Dec 2003 using a pair of Senneheiser MKH110 to a Sony TCD-D100 DAT.
Track 3 - Electric guitars recorded at home, November 2005.
Track 4 - Recorded at Amann Studios, Vienna, January 2006.
Track 7 - Glasgow, 28th November 1980, and at 0712h a dredger rolls drunkenly up the River Clyde. Slow, deep, monophonic progress announced by the complaining squeals of chains and teeth which reverberate and answer back across narrow banks.
Track 9 - ...Off the main line and divorced from the rest of Mexico by an unnatural quiet is a railway town with no traffic. April 13th 2005. Pause now and listen to the diesel boat and powder blue tones vanish into the canyon floor below.
Track 10 - This piece was recorded in London at some sessions in Park Royal in 1988 for a follow-up LP to "Open In Obscurity" that never materialized.
Track 11 - Made in November 2005 on Twisted 7 Harddisc.
Track 12 - Recorded during Fritt Fall, 12th November 2005.
Track 13 - Recorded in Berlin November 2005.
Track 14 - Recorded in Cantieri Goldonetta, Florence, Italy and NTOV, Reykjavik, Iceland 2005. Written for a performance by Rafaella Giordano.
Track 15 - Bärseback was a nuclear power plant in Sweden. Just before it closed down in May 2005, I visited the plant and brought with me an accelerometer. With this tool i could put an ear to this whole nuclear body with all its pipes, basins and turbines.I made this track from the sound of a big tube that leads sea water into the reactor with a steady pressure.
Track 18 - Performed on glove-controlled sinewaves.
Track 19 - Edited from live performances in New York, Frankfurt & Stockholm.
Track 24 - Recorded in Tromsø.
