Originally entitled Three Litre Blues after the three litre plastic bottle that I filled with water and used as a bass percussion instrument. But I dedicated it to Daevid Allen ("Bert") on hearing of his death and played some glissando guitar on the track in tribute.
In keeping with the game rules I took a kick drum sample from the stems I was provided with from sphek (Johnny Textface). Everything else is edited from live improvisations, aside from the violins, which which I played note by note, playing the pulsating single note rhythm for several bars, then editing the parts together into an ensemble arrangement of up to 24 violins.
