This album was a series of songs that were not complete and did not work well a single pieces or a single pieces as an album. I chopped them up in a way that I would do a performance and reworked it until it was one long track with about 12 small sub-songs in there. I used NI Reaktor, Absynth, and Massive for most of the sounds. I also used a large quantity of field recordings I have from walks along the train tracks in my home town. Finally mixing was a long process and involved listening to it on walk in the evening using different headphones to get a good idea what it would sound like. This version is slightly different than the one released on iTunes. I added some music at the end and faded in later in the beginning.
