about

Originally intended to be a two disc set, each one continuous track of 80 minutes, and playable together as one 80 minute piece on two stereo sound systems for a surround sound effect. These CDs had to be edited into 4 separate pieces, two for each disc, in order to fit this format. Each pair can still be burned onto one disc and played together, but they also work as a continuous extra-long album of synthesizer drone works.

This is the last recorded sounds from Ken's Moog muSonics minimoog unit before it was given over to capable hands for restoration. The synth was run through a four-channel tape deck, with the first channel recorded onto the second, the second onto the third, and the third onto the fourth. After that, the tracks were processed with a Lexicon effects module to give each disc a "characteristic" of its own.

"And when He got into the boat, His disciples followed Him. And behold, there arose a great storm on the sea, so that the boat was being swamped by the waves; but He was asleep. And they went and woke Him saying, 'Save us, Lord; we are perishing.' And He said to them, 'Why are you afraid, O you of little faith?' Then He rose and rebuked the winds and the sea, and there was a great calm. And the men marveled, saying, 'What sort of man is this, that even winds and sea obey Him?'" -Matt.8:23-27
