Music for Automata

the second of the noise tapes trilogy, Music for Automata delves deeper into harsher experimentation contrasted with eerie ambience, field recordings, and ebbing drones. special thanks to Manfred Schröder for track titles and general inspiration.

I apologize for avoiding the "Deterior-8" pun for the eighth Deterior release, I hope you'll forgive me.

one day, when I decide to buy a new bass, I will consciously not buy one with active pickups. these things are the worst idea ever.

yes, this is prompted by my having a perfectly good battery turn out dead for absolutely no reason. or maybe I'm just bitter.
