Billy Gomberg's debut CD release displays abstract and complex
dimensions of texture and tone that might make more sense at first on a subconscious level before it will on a conscious one. Therefore, it is advised to first approach this music from a pure listening standpoint, free from preconceived notions of musical structure and form since it can defy such prosaic logic.

Billy explains: "These tracks are the start of my working toward a more immediate sound - improvisation w/software, real-time construction of the sound material and structure, taking priority. While some material comes from software in real-time, all other sound was generated by Roland Juno synthesizers, plus a few tracks incorporate my voice. Post-production editing and treatment were mostly employed to find the clearest expression of my improvisations and shape them into more conventional 'tracks' or 'songs.' When improvising in this style, I do have a sense of trying to find a 'song,' and letting that take me somewhere else. Somewhat more abstractly - where was I when I started this work - a good portion of this album was started just after I moved to Brooklyn in 2005. Risking cliché, this is raw sound, a discovery of style (or a total lack of it). I just make music, it's a space between the listener and myself. In this way, sound is 'simple' - it's presence as we listen gives it expression, our listening finds its language."
