almost all of this music was made in oakland, CA while i was in grad school for film. along w/ "hand drawn rhythm machine", i consider this collection a parallel thesis of sorts: a brain dump of creative impulses that i set aside while i worked on my actual film thesis, which was a short documentary about a family friend who makes his living as a professional musician.
