Please also send an email to ArrayWeb ::–AT–:: with your postal address, just in case. The first 7 people to purchase this release will also receive a bonus floppy-disc copy of “Instants I”, a selection of 3 sound instants by Massimo Magee.

I’m not going to be releasing these in any fixed number, just until either I get fed up with making copies, or people stop buying them, whichever comes first.

Note: the recording was used in the improvisation as any other instrument would have been – decisions to start/stop/pause/rewind etc. the recording were taken during the improvisation just as decisions to start or stop playing a particular instrument would have been.  This piece is improvised, with no edits or overdubbing.
