NOTES — Second in the line of “The Experiment” works, which are experiments in figuring out what my software can do. Toying around; playing with stuff that I hope will benefit later projects. Usually “hey, here are some ideas” rather than serious music I’d like people to hear. With The Experiment 2, I was initially aiming for ambient music, but it took a left turn in the making. That effort would later become Accepting the Days of Nothing. The closer, The Sun Rising At Machu Picchu, is a personal favorite.

NOTES — This album is what it’s called: an experiment. But it’s not experimental music. Got some software that dealt with loops and samples and such, got a bunch of samples, and goofed around for a week or two trying to figure out what it could do. That’s all. This is the result. Nothing serious, just attempts to figure out how to assemble songs electronically. I don’t even claim it’s any good, though I do like a few of the songs (The Noise, The Sax, The Suck, The Agenda). There are some vocals, mostly Indian (Asian Indian) singing I cut up and spliced together. Other songs are just beats and samples. Bits of piano and strings and beats and jazz and whatever. ‘The Noise’ contains samples of me on guitar. Created in FL Studio 6. Distributed digitally. Cover photo by me.
