this music continues the exploration of improvisationally composed music and was created using a prepared zither and a drum kit augmented with metal bowls and bells. the sounds were created and captured acoustically and absent is the use of processing and effects leaving the basic elements of the instruments sounds
to interact with one another. the sounds can be seen as building blocks (or perhaps nails and pieces of wood) which are then assembled within the psyche of the listener, hence the use of carpentry terminology as song titles. the aim is to create a metaphorically physical representation of the sounds. although the sounds are audible the sound waves also exist on a physical plane which then enter into the listener and takes shape within their consciousness. it is then up to the listener to construct the album within their mind.
