This recording could almost be referred to as a split release between Bill Brovold and Larval, his main working ensemble, as four of the ten tracks feature that band. These four tracks, however, make up the bulk of the music, as the non-Larval tracks tend to be quite short in comparison. Nearly all the tunes employ a similar minimalist aesthetic: musical figures repeated and then varied ever so slightly as different instruments come to the forefront.
