This little 3" disc was originally released in January 2001 on the excellent Italian label, Afe Records, by the equally excellent Andrea Marutti. Andrea had supported my music for a while at this point, and to my mind this 20 minute digital composition was the best thing I'd created up to that point. Listening back now, I find a lot to like here. I am credited with 'computer'. And so it was. I still think this stands up, nearly 15 years later. But what do you think?

The title of the piece came at a point when I was at my height of fascination with Alfred Jarry, a fascination that has only dwindled a little over the years.

'L'objet d'art, par définition, est le crocodile empaillé.'

My thanks are due to Andrea Marutti, as always, and to Caroline McKenzie who sent me a non-corrupted version of the track after I discovered mine had bitten the digital dust.
