This is just a random electronic noodling. It was recorded/performed "live" or mostly realtime - all filter sweeps are live, as are on the fly rhythm and melody edits. The style is inspired by Coil's The Snow EP - very early techno/acid. The melody and synth lines were inspired by the HAARP signal as re-encoded for audible spectrum. This sample also plays in the background for much of the song in various permutations, The rhythm signature was inspired by an old crufty-noisy oscillating desk fan. The timebase for the song was an odd and atypical signature to replicate the random rhythmicness of the noisy desk fan. Warning: For some reason a small subset of people have independently complained of having heart palpitations while listening to this song. Something about the rhythm signature, or perhaps the HAARP sample. *shrug*

Well, it gave me foot palpitations, anyway.

We are on the same wave length (pun intended). I've been working on some eery bass lines and have been seriously considering the same thing. Seriously . . . check out this post I did about the topic. I got seriously f***ed with for that topic. I'm surprised nobody has commented to you. This is a pretty trippy piece you did.

I took the time to re-read all of the comments from that posted I referred to and realized you were the one who wrote the long commentary trying to bring everyone back into discussion instead of name calling. Thanks! How many HAARP recordings do you have?

I only have one HAARP related sample, and this track.

It's an easy topic to fuck with, and probably rightly so. That guy's site was a mess. When you post fringe stuff like that you really have to be stoic and removed from it. I wasn't really arguing for the topic, but more arguing for the possibility of the topic.

However, I'm aware of history and possibilities. Some pretty strange things have happened.
