Stefano Balice recorded two 30-minute microcassettes October-November 2012 in Givoletto, Italy - street workers, playground, monotron, metro, metal gate, cars, bus, flea market, barbie bontempi keyboard's glitches (during bending), bells, friends talking, a goat, domestic tools, circuit bent SK1, glass bottles, my angry girlfriend, dogs, my cat, supermarket, telephone interferences, daily noises.

Hal McGee recorded a 60-minute microcassette April 2013 in Gainesville, Florida, USA - talking with neighbors & co-workers, spoken found texts from posters & leaflets & fortune cookies, shortwave radio, vaporized FM radio (bent by Stefano), phone conversations & voice mails, Casio VL-1, Noisemusick app, dogs, grocery store, circuit bent SK-1, my pocket, bells, my brother playing congas.

Hal mixed the microcassettes together through a mini-mixer connected to a Zoom H2 recorder. During the mix of B2, the signal faded before the ends of the tapes and then the H2 died. Stefano and Hal accepted the vaporized choice of the H2.
