about

Originally webcast on March 25th, 2010. This is sort of a Whitman's sampler of various new-age type meditations on being and nothingness with appropriate musical references that came to mind at the time of it's construction sprinkled throughout, few in their entirety.

A unique and 'trippy' mix, inquiring into the 'less as more' paradigm, taken to it's most extreme. The subject of 'nothing' in popular culture, with a leitmotif of the subject of atom splitting sprinkled throughout including material about the Large Hadron Collider against the backdrop of the philosophical and scientific viewpoint that the Universe is largely and mostly nothing.

This program is meant to be listened to, and taken, as a whole work, artistic in nature. Subsequently, more derivative tracks are not available separately.

All derived and referenced material used herein is meticulously accredited and/or fragmented / transformed / re-contextualized, and/or remixed from its original form, and is used fairly as a cultural reference in the subtext, and artistic narrative, of this unique 'syntopical' arrangement.

Any proceeds from this work are considered donations to express appreciation for, and to help support, the expenses of the project this program is a part of, and the creative work behind it, and is not a prerequisite fee in exchange for content.

All the used material from the radio show "Over the Edge" used in this program is used with the express permission of the show's producer.

Thank you for listening, and thank you for your support.
