The tracks on Still Lives were recorded with various electronic music gear, meticulously tweaked and then set up to be recorded at predetermined lengths, with no editing, fades or cuts afterward. The structure of the album is based on a simple increase in length and reduction in number, giving a symmetric series of cut-up drone walls ranging from noisy screeches and pulsating throbs to hum clusters.
All of the sounds (and micro-structures within) arise from feedback networks which when left alone create ever-changing motion. Each track consists of a number of drones, juxtaposed and set apart by breaks intuited from the vague sensation of tempo in the preceding track.

Listening instructions
