Limits of Control; 1997
running time = 1:38
Ironic parallels of harsh proportions between anarchism and corporate
economic models ; trickle down economics states that governments should
keep regulations out of capitalism. “Government controls are not like a
suit of clothes that can be put on or taken off at will.” Is this a
leftist argument or a right wing agenda?
Uses an Aries modular synthesizer as prime sound source. Attempts
to push sound by step sequencing unsafe, arguably uncontrolled, patches;
causing lots of electrical shocks and lots more distortion.
Unheard Concert Track; 1998
running time = 3:00
Should have, but wasn’t played during MEDUSA series of that year. A collage
of rhythmic elements and sounds, be it present or historic, associated with
the popular dance music of a specific time. Tribal hedonistic mayhem meant
to be enjoyed critically through the boring act of sitting on your ass. This
one tries to rip you out of your seat.

Primordium assignment. Where the primordium is the one and only sound source.
The complex results of a controlled class assignment; a simple ride through
the dynamic range of the modern primitive preformance instrument in question.
running time = 5:02
Let the experience take you where every excusable audiophile hiss becomes
an unexcusable focus of pain; more primordium; more modification of source.
26 Letters of Miscomunication; 1999
running time = 3:00
To the point in life where what you did is better than what you are
doing. Return to the fundamentals. Go back to sleep.
Using a speech emulation program, my computer reads personal e-mail. All
other sound sources are either internal to the computer (such as virtual
synth, speech, etc.) or samples of jungle and techno I was doing prior to
the formation of PFD in 1996. Bringing necessary closure, mixed with
shameless narcissism. How ridiculous is the notion of computer technology
as human experience? Ridiculous enough to be the dismal and present state
Bomb NATO; 1999
running time = 4:59
My compliant and generally uninterested apathy towards present war
situations in Serbia vs. my roommate’s violent and personal aggression towards
the entire planet. The end of the world is near and I continue to ignore.
A study of granular synthesis as a violent catalyst to provoke my own interest
in what I have been successfully programmed to pass off as just another news
