Originally released on cassette.

"Third eye guitar/theremin/feedback transcendentalism.
A delicate balance of lovely and bizarre finger-picking mixed with theremin whine, whammy bar wobble, dense swirling feedback drones and belching electronics. Three amazing tracks of solo bliss sessions for six string and electronics. Visionary and truly beautiful work from this awesome contemporary player. Stunningly emotional and visceral playing that evokes serene pastural landscapes as filtered through lens-flares and blinding white light. Masterfully recorded in Oakland, CA 2010-2011 by friend and collaborator Peter Conheim (of Negativland and Neung Phak). Real time duplicated clear shell cassette with printed and stenciled labels came beautifully packaged in a deluxe oversized clear vinyl album with double sided full color artwork and a 4"x 6"sealed plastic bag containing a small handful of wood shavings with a hand numbered vellum insert. This is essential listening for the upcoming seasonal emergence from our bleak winter hibernation chambers."
