Shimm was never really a unified piece at all until I started working on abandon. Bits and pieces of taped sketches were found here and there, on tapes that I found in boxes, closets, here, there and everywhere. A few of these tapes were thrown together to create this construct. One tape was a vocal track that was recorded while playing around with a borrowed multi-effect processor, another was recorded to try out a new brass plate for reverberation. I later did a funny re-mix of the first track on abandon mixed together with this track and a big dance beat on Crook'd Finger's "AFT"
