Another early New York experiment, this was written while reading Kim Gordon's "Girl in a Band" and really tries to channel the 80s downtown noise rock and experimental jazz scenes that were happening at the time.

The instrumentation of two clarinets a half step apart (b flat and A clarinet) and two guitars tuned a half step apart, relying heavily on overtones creates a unique sonic dissonance that channels bands like Sonic Youth and Swans, but with an improvisational freedom more akin to noise jazz pioneers like John Zorn and Elliot Sharp.
