"During the spring of this year, David and I had been messaging one another on a number of different subjects, the origin of which had been an order he had placed for various new releases from Confront Recordings. Leading into this period, I'd begun thinking about a sub-series on the label, focusing on shorter pieces. The original intention was to release them on 3" CDs mounted on heavy weight, printed board sleeves. It was the simple combination of time and place that I happened to ask David to participate. I work purely on intuition: if it feels right, then it must be worth pursuing. As with every release on Confront, the artist is at complete liberty to submit whatever material they feel appropriate. I make no demands or changes, just the initial offer. With 'Schoolhouse', David created a piece that's completely true to his current impulses and totally in line with label philosophy."-Mark Wastell
