    "A Flow of Code" was originally released a million years ago, and is a collection of various experimental noise soundscapes I created between 2000 and 2003. After a couple of years, I decided to turn the entire album around and play it in reverse from the end of the last track to the beginning of the first. Brilliant, no? I found it created an entirely new atmosphere for the record and I quite enjoyed it.

    The nature of these types of compositions lends itself to such twistery; indeed without my explanation, I doubt anybody would be the wiser. To me, the purpose of "noise" and "ambient" music is to create subtle moods and a potential multiplicity of non-physical environments that the listener flows through as if being carried along by a river in space (or thrust down a rocky waterfall, as it may be). The experience of listening is more akin to being in a wide open world of as yet undefined possibilities and feelings, whereas the rigidly structured rhythms & tonalities of songs tend to bring the listener via a predefined route to a specific destination. Perhaps noise does this too, but the ride is at very least much stranger, the destination more obscure.

    Additionally, the amount of aural data in noise compositions tends to be exponentially greater than otherwise repetitive songs, giving the attentive listener much more information to process and incorporate into their realtime experience of existence while listening. In this way I find it similar to nature--a complex textural layering of data upon data upon data, much of it never repeated exactly, only in infinite variations if at all.

    The most appropriate way to take in this album (and others like it) is to relax, dip into a meditative state, close your eyes and see where it takes you...
