To Steve Dalachinsky, whose presence during the recording session was inspiring

Matthew Shipp, John Butcher and Thomas Lehn appropriate the different aspects of music and sound and together manage to transform / combine / corrupt the elements at their disposal while keeping their individual identities and personalities intact. Their languages have the ability to set music in motion, to accelerate or decelerate, showing how these two factors can balance or unbalance each other. Lots of empathy in the service of music
