Some words from Jim about the record: “For the last 10 or so years, making music has always been the place that I turned when the paintbrush wasn’t working for me. I found that even when I was burned out from making art, the act of sitting and making music would allow me not to feel like a waste of time and space. I came to realize that this was part of my whole process, so I began to incorporate those sounds into the installations I do in a gallery, to represent everything I made during the last 6 months or so, not just the visual art. And I was very happy with how the sounds accompanied the sights. My music found a home in my artwork. This record represents the best bleeps and bloops and thuds and screeches and crashes from the past 2 years of art shows, condensed and recorded at home into 6 short songs. Just like my paintings: heartfelt and repetitive.”
