This composiition by percussionist Michael Zerang and trumpeter Mazen Kerbaj is based on exploring and incorporating the widest possible range of sounds that their instruments produce. It can be heard as a metaphor for exploring the wides possible range of sensation and spirit, even if such discoveries are sometimes strange to us at the outset.

Circuit Bending is the creative recycling of discarded consumer electronics, usually children’s toys, guitar effects units, inexpensive battery-powered musical instruments, portable CD players, etc., to create unique experimental electronic art by adding wires, knobs, and switches to control new connections within the device’s pre-existing circuitry. Roth Mobot (Patrick McCarthy & Tommy Stephenson) lead a primer on circuit bending technique.
