Some words from Jim about the record:
for the last 10 or so years, making music has always been the place that i turned when the paintbrush wasn't working for me. i found that even when i was burned out from making art , the act of sitting and making music would allow me not to feel like a waste of time and space.
i came to realize that this was part of my whole process , so why not incorporate those sounds into the installations i do in a gallery. from an art-show- type-view , it felt like , ok , so now this represents EVERYTHING i made during the last 6 months or so , not just the visual art. and i was very happy with how the sounds accompanied the sights . my music found a home in my artwork .
so this record represents the best bleeps and bloops and thuds and screeches and crashes from the past 2 years of art shows , condensed and recorded at home into 6 short songs . just like my paintings : heartfelt and repetitive.
