a number of years ago at a surplus electronics shop, i picked up this great little suitcase that had this variable oscillator inside. the device was used for those hearing tests that we used to take as kids.  i remember wearing those blue plastic headphones and sitting in a chair with my back to the tester… raising my left hand or my right depending on which side you could hear the beep.  it always made me a bit nervous that i wouldn’t hear anything or would mix up which hand to raise.

i made this little track using just this machine and my usual pair of delay pedals recorded straight into my handy recorder.


i also wanted to say happy birthday to my dad and happy mother’s day to my mom.  love you both very much.
