This is a little compilation of instrumental compositions I've made over the last few years. I wanted to share these tracks in some form or another before we moved onto recording some new material. These are tracks recorded during the time "You Are Alone" was being written and recorded, and they were used for my college portfolio submissions for several different schools. Much more experimental than usual Bad Kids stuff, but all the tracks came out of the same place of emotion and musical experimentation that led to a lot of the songs on "You Are Alone". A lot of these songs are as emotionally important to me as tracks like "Hospital" and "That Time..." from the album. I hope you guys enjoy them. I included some information on each track if you want some background info on when it was recorded and what equipment was used, and maybe what it means a little. So yeah, thanks guys. Hopefully we'll be doing more new stuff soon. :)

Thanks to Eli Stine and Matt Omahan for their help with tracks 3-7. Matt let me us his modular and helped guide me with the patching, and Eli Stine helped program the Max/MSP patch used prominently on track 3 and 5.
