about

Recorded in 2016.

I started by recording 99 drum tracks and 198 guitar tracks (left and right). Each drum/guitar track was improvised and recorded while listening to silence, except for a count-in and count-out to indicate 20 seconds. Then, I made a list in Microsoft Excel from 1 to 99 that signified the chronological order of the drum track recordings and I randomized the order of the list (so that, for example, the 57th drum track I recorded would be on row/song 1, the 89th drum track would be on row/song 2, etc.). I did the same with the guitar tracks, randomized a list from 1-198, and used the first two rows for song 1, the next two for song 2, etc. Then, I rearranged the drum/guitar tracks according to the randomized lists and recorded vocals.

With this method, I was able to create music and listen to it as if I had never heard it before, which is rare as a musician. Hence the name of the album.
