Nate Wooley、Troy Schaferを始め個人で異色の音楽をやっている作家に普段とは別コンセプトの楽曲制作を依頼、それをコンピレーションとして纏め上げたカナダ発のカセットレーベル(1.8)sec.recordsの企画もの。各作家が物音やアンビエント、フィールドレコーディングと別分野の実験を試みた抽象的音像の連続。
For it's 2nd compilation (1.8)sec.records invited artists to contribute tracks based around extended technique. It was left up to the artists to decide how they wanted to interpret that invitation, and they did not disappoint.
