From March 30 to April 1, 2001 a bunch of dudes got together in the basement of 140 Possum Hollow Road in Newark to freak out and record; a 3-day music party experiment. This post is the end result – or at least the first part of the end result; there are still many hours to be mixed down. This recording session was conceived by myself and Tom Dougherty, hosted by Kevin Thomas, engineered by Sgt. Scrapes and me, and then mixed down by Sgt. Scrapes and me. Enjoy!

Recorded on March 30 – April 1, 2001

This piece is another example of improvised music that was later edited together to become a coherent piece. This is actually the only recording of significance that I did while living at 19th & Pine in Philadelphia. In 2001, I got together with Jace Masula and Leif Carney for a freakout session. I had worked with Jace in the internet realm, and was a fan of his music, but hadn’t jammed with him before. Leif, on the other hand, I had freaked out with a million times before (I played in The Electric Subconscious with him, and we even lived together for a year). After the session was over, I decided to edit it all down into this one long song.

The idea behind the song is that it is the distant future, and robots are trying to take over the world. Louis, an unlikely hero who had joined the Human Alliance to fight the robots, gets captured and is locked up for interrogation. While behind enemy lines, he meets a sympathetic Fembot that he falls in love with. The Fembot, who before the War was programmed to care for humans, is able to resist her new programming and helps Louis escape. Just as they make it to saftey, riding off into the sunset, young Louis wakes up and realizes it was all just a dream (of course it was). Enjoy!
