"Both CD & 2LP feature deluxe hand-screened covers. Featuring members of Pelican & X-Bax. For the new album three single-chord compositions were charted out, one freeform and tone driven, one long-form piece with charts dictating the players' intensity of performance, and one grid-like chart where each players' note continually shifts, though the combination of voices continue to maintain the chord. Six chords were chosen and arranged in a progression that encompasses two separate performances of each of the three compositions. Though the CD and 2LP share a similar internal structure and can be listened on their own, they are intended to be played concurrently forming the full six chord arc of the total piece. The CD & 2LP are intended to be listened to concurrently making one full album."
