(In 1996, NG5361 [also of Sigillum S] and I collaborated
on a recording project entitled, "Excellent Manipulation
of Distorted Tape Death," which was released on
BloodLust! as a four cassette, six-hour box set [4 x C-90],
limited to 50 numbered copies, housed in a large vinyl box.
The project utilized progressive analog tape generations
and sound fidelity decay as both a direction for the
concept that we worked under and for the sounds that
we manipulated and ended up with. In 2006, NG5361
revisited those recordings, in a more digital manner,
and he came up with two new masters: "The Edit"
- a disc of eight tracks, each drawn from one of the
original cassette sides -- and "Super Density Assemblage"
- two self-explanatory, 28-minute-long tracks, built from
multiple sections of the box set. This is the first of these
new masters to be released on CD. Professionally
duplicated CD, single panel, double-sided insert; color
artwork; in jewel box with shrinkwrap; Released in 2008)
