The track is a very intimate conversation between a person and god, and the conversation is a critique by the person of god and one of god's disciples. -Radwan Moumneh

8. For MA
Electrochemical improvisation by Erin Sexton, using water, epsom salt, oscillators, electromagnetic amplifiers, copper wire, and nine-volt batteries.
Using simple analog circuits, I experiment with salt solutions as signal processors, searching for links between the cosmic and the molecular through sound. Multiple wires converge in a single solution, creating fragile and chaotic feedback systems from which both noise and strange patterns emerge. The process of ions separating from molecules is sonified, creating a tactile link with matter, while changing both the colour and composition of the solution, which I then crystallize. -Erin Sexton
Recorded in the artist's studio in Montreal in April 2014.
9. Live in Silent Barn Audio available on CD only.
Live improvisation by Gil Delindro.
In this performance, I extended the variety of sounds I've been working with through my Canadian tour-mixing inputs from amplified ice cracking, water, feedback, sound sculptures, and field recordings. The several layers of sounds are processed and performed in real time, using the mixer as a main instrument-a new approach that brought me a strange acousmatic feeling while playing .
Recorded in concert at Silent Barn in Brooklyn, N.Y., on March 24, 2014.
10. The Night Paddler Audio available on CD only.
Composed and performed by Michael Trommer, using Edirol R-09HR audio recorder, Audio-Technica AT822 microphone, Cold Gold hydrophone, home-made microphone array, and contact microphone.
This piece consists of field recordings made during solo late-night paddles in the summer of 2013. The intense darkness and sonic filtering effects of the local landscape during these treks engendered what were striking and uncanny acousmatic experiences.
Recorded and composed at Big Bob Lake, Ontario, in Summer 2013.
