Notes:

Recorded in Fort Collins, Colorado on 2/2/2016 (tracks 1-9) and 4/29/2016 (tracks 10-16).

Everything you hear was improvised live. No charts, no second takes, and no overdubbing.

Mastered to -3dbv.

The reverb on the album is generated in Cabbage/Csound and uses an impulse of Perth City Hall from www.openairlib.net user Nick Green.
