I was fascinated with making minimal techno for a while, right after Drone Forest broke up, circa 2007 or so. This is a small portion of what I did then. Someday I'll mix and master the rest.
From the original release album notes:
"This is some work I did in 2007, directly after ending my work with the drone collective Drone Forest.
I wanted to do some music that fell far outside of that group's constraints (no beat, no melody). This music reflects an interest in minimal techno that I had at the time. The exploration of beat-oriented material during this time eventually led to the series of releases I called The Electret Quintet, which merged the accessible material presented here with a more experimental approach."

Drum loop in "August" was made by Harlan Lyman.
"Fast Hands" contains the voice of Matthew Westra, from a public domain audiobook of "Complete Hypnotism, Mind-Reading and Spiritualism" by A. Alpheus.
