about

Original cassette version has creosote embedded within.

Sounds used on tour throughout 2013 (Europe and North America).

Both sides intended to be played together in 'subliminal' simultaneity (one is heard in the head on playback in short-term memory while the other is audible).

These tapes do play as any other normal cassette would. However, it is also meant to be a somewhat conceptual/“art object” release, in that I do hope that eventually the foliage inside will alter the sound of the tape in some way. Besides being my favorite plant, and very representative of my Sonoran Desert homeland, creosote (Larrea tridentata) has very resinous leaves that might eventually stick to and warp the tape, which already consists of sound sourced from manipulated tape samples. I also chose it because it’s well-adjusted to dry desert conditions, and I expect it will remain intact within the cassette shell longer than most other plants would.
