Desoofedoor was a one-off project of 12
ambient/electronica pieces written and mixed in
in October 2007 according to several rules.
1. No loops used, instruments played real-time.
2. No fixed tempos.
3. Emphasis on organic/electronic/found sounds.
4. Structures laid by first take of first instrument.
5. Voice used for texture/tune rather than meaning.
