This music was performed in one uninterrupted 42-minute soundglob. It is based on our breath, on the spaces in which we found ourselves (physically and internally) and on a Gibson S(uper)G(enius) in drop-D and a Parker in standard tuning.

In the last two minutes, you will hear audience members overturning benches and throwing chairs to show their appreciation. (You can also see this happen on the video.) You can also hear joyous background whooping throughout the piece.

Many thanks to our friendly neighborhood Grant Capes for making this amazing evening possible! Thanks also to Avolcano, Obscurer, and Skyline Electric for sharing the night with us.

"Breath As A Human Resource" was recorded live to faux-binaural mini-disc at Human Resources, Chinatown, Los Angeles, Outer Space.
