Album full of collaborations done through the mail. A wide rage of results including droning strings, a homemade vocoder, demonic vocals, chanting, word collage, harsh noise, creepy melodies and free jazz horn textures. In 2004 the Zashiki Warashi organization began sending out pieces of music through the mail to various parties in different geographic locations asking them to interact with it in some way and return it, which would then be assembled into a larger whole. This album is the result. Includes battles with:

Burning Star Core
Alan Dubin (Khanate, Gnaw, OLD)
Marcia Bassett (Double Leopards, Zaimph)
David Shuford (NNCK, Enos Slaughter, D. Charles Speer)
Kuwayama Kiyoharu
Marshall Avett (Zandosis)
Greg Wildes (Gas Tank Orchestra)
Carter Thornton
Carl Smith / Derek Phelps
Darwin Smith
Smith Harrison
Dr. Mijin Kim

Originally released as vinyl only on Conduit Creations (cc 10) . Limited to 550 Copies.

Tracks are presented here as full album sides to facilitate better flow of the whole. Discrete extended versions of each track are available through iTunes.
