In Their Words: "I was interested in writing songs that started not with guitar but with synthesizer/sequencer ideas. The modular synth parts didn't always make it through to the final recordings, but the influence is still there. On 'Harps' for instance, that melody and structure could not have happened if I hadn't played off the sequencer right at the beginning. Having the pieces start in my home studio, I became quite cavalier with them, painting with a new fat sloppy brush. The songs were feeling pleasantly out of control and I was hearing music unlike other material I had come up with before." -- Guitarist Sam Prekop
