Boxcar Rockstar is Track 1
of the Amoeba Denatured CD.
While sifting through the
large number of Amoeba recordings, I would sometimes, without recognizing it, listen
to a recording session that I had already heard, owing to the fact that it had
been recorded on more than one medium. This session was simultaneously recorded by all three
Amoeba musicians. Listening to one of the recordings, I titled this
composition Infernal Fractal, and at another time, I titled the same
composition Boxcar Rockstar. I eventually settled on the title Boxcar Rockstar,
but I have had second thoughts about it, since "Infernal Fractal"
suits the abstractness better. Each of the three recordings has a surprisingly
different character. I subtitled this mix the "December Mix"
because it evokes a blizzard windstorm, rocky caves, and odd presences
sweeping in on the frigid wind. The peculiar warble, most apparent toward
the end, is probably caused by a malfunction of the analog recorder. -- Jeff
