When I was composing the tracks for Circuit Wound's "Gathering of Rust" CD for the Harsh Noise label, at the time, I was recording everything live in one take straight to a tape deck. For this release I really wanted a heavily layered sound, but as I stated above, I lacked the means to produce the sound I wanted. So, I came up with a simple, lo-tech means of achieving this goal by making a tape of cut-up sounds of various noises ranging from field recordings, circuit-bent devices, synthesizers, found sounds, and even other Circuit Wound recordings, and played the tape alongside the live noise I was creating. Years later, I rediscovered said tape and transferred the material to my computer. I Then took the sounds on each side of the tape, cut it in half and layered the 2 halves on top of each other to make it even more complex and "busy". Other than that, no post editing or EQing has been done to this material. Originally recorded 2003/2004, rediscovery and layering done in 2012.
