John Gore sent some excellent tapes for me to add onto for a by-mail collaboration. all of the pieces were nearly fully realized, with very strong musical themes, and could probably have been released as they were as Kirchenkampf songs. I found it difficult to add to the pieces without seeming out of place, or without making the pieces overdense. I attempted to add some earthy and raw atmospheres on top of his spacey, clean music. These three tracks were all that we completed, and John was disappointed with the way they turned out, so we didn't pursue further collaboration, until much later as GoreHallReider. Part one contains a portion of "the Slow Seed (part three)", as does "Fast Fertilizer"
