You probably knew him better as Pope Callixtus III. His legacy, aside from his advanced age, feebleness and incompetence, is marked by a widely-spread (and patently false) rumor that he successfully exorcised Halley's Comet in 1456.

Track № 2 of Demons of Gyrophonia's RPM2011 album, The Golden Age of Bastards.. A saxophone quartet I recorded with three of my closest friends. This is the first of four tracks from the album that features a single performer in a multitracked, improvised setting.

Wow, so you did it all on your own ?

The performance end was exclusively me. askmeaboutLOOM did the post-production on this track and the whole of the album. Had we been thinking about it at the time, we would also have captured video...
