"This release features collaborations with UK improv musicians John Edwards, Caroline Kraabel and Dave Tucker, as well as contributions from electronica artists Kato Hideki, Darren Tate and Glenn Gupta.

CD1, October Rush, renews the group's acquaintance with former members of B Shops For The Poor - Jon Dobie (guitar) and John Edwards (double bass), and also introduces some new collaborators, Glenn Gupta and Dave Tucker on electronics. This one track CD is a heady mixture of composition, electronica, intense drum beats and improvisation.

CD2, The Art Of Empire, is a reworking of some of the saxophone material found on CD3 into an electronic landscape, creating a world of dark ambience.This features electronics by Kato Hideki, Darren Tate, Glenn Gupta and Adrian Northover.

CD3, An Affair Of Cyphers, is a showcase for the classic saxophone ensemble writing of David Petts, with the addition of Sue Lynch on tenor sax and flute, and Caroline Kraabel on alto and baritone sax..This CD also introduces new experiments in texture, with pieces for larger ensembles.

CD4, The Fiction Department, is the long awaited follow- up to Sudden Rooms In Different Buildings, and is the classic Remote Viewers trio, performing songs and featuring the haunting vocals of Louise Petts.

CD5, Situations, is a set of solo soprano saxophone improvisations by Adrian Northover, including live recording, overdubbed and processed pieces."-The Remote Viewers
