Liner notes:

Neil Leonard - soprano, alto and tenor saxophones, bells, ocarina and interactive music system. All works composed, performed and programmed by Neil Leonard III, ASCAP, except Caxionics, by Neil Leonard and Ileana Perez, ASCAP.

The music on this CD was recorded in real-time without the aid of overdubbing. Software for this session ran on a Macintosh Powerbook 5300 running MAX and custom objects designed in C. The electronic instruments were Roland CD-40 acoustic sensor; Kurzweil K2000R, Alesis HR-16, Roland R-8 sound modules; Lexicon PCM-80 effects processor.

"Neil Leonard has chosen a rough path in an even rougher time. The highest aim of art is to make life more livable, more beautiful, more humane, less violent. The explosive computer sounds of contemporary media, backed by a dead beat, worn out rhythm blasting at levels far beyond the FCC's limit, succeed in beating the listener into a nervous wreck, contributing to life on earth being made ugly. In the midst of this carnage is a civilized musician who has taken on the gargantuan task of humanizing the computer. If anyone can 'in-soulmate' the computer in a manner which integrates it beautifully and subtly with the heart and soul of the human artist, that person is Neil Leonard, and this CD is the realization of this worthy goal."

George Russell, April 2001
