My first album as Aux.78 was a sound collage that took me 5 years to complete. It was released in 2000. It is now 2015 and you all are now old and closer to death than ever before. Armageddon has already gone and passed. Modern day vaccines and internet obsession saved us from the dark light. Y2k has passed. The first Aux.78 album was able to be released and we all did not die. Now another threat is tickling our souls as we notice people being complete jerk wads making us contemplate the end of days, for humans at least. I thought it would be a great time to release yet another album of the sound collage. There are traces of what people may call music here and there on the release but mostly it is a clusterfuck of sound design. I promise you if given the chance this album is great paired with doing the dishes, sweeping around the house, smoking the reefer or simply to create paranoia as you are traveling on the bus with ear buds in. Your cats and dogs WILL NOT like this album. Fair warning. Not for mammalian pets. Good day, now sod off.
