Created, mixed and mastered in an Airbnb in Columbus, Ohio in 2021.

1:26 of organized chaos. This isn't for everybody, it might not be for anybody. Free-jazz but beats. I just had to get it out of me. It's yours now.

The cover art is a collage of MRIs I had taken of my brain a few months ago. I've had physical tics that run through my face and body for at least the past 15 years or so. I used to be extremely insecure about them but now it just is what it is, if you know me, you've probably noticed. It's one of the first things my wife so elegantly and bluntly pointed out to me on one of our first dates.
Anywho, I felt like they were getting worse this past year and was worried I might have something nefarious going on in my brain. So I laid in a machine for 45 minutes and made beats in my head out of the random noises and apparently this is what my brain looks like when I do that. Turns out my brain is normal (?), and I got a ton of free MRI scans to make some album art out of, so it's a win for all. Thanks California Health Care Services!
