1. Adrift: Three unsynchronized loops and effects.
2. Cold Stars: Single loop, electric guitar and Electro-Harmonix POG 2 octave pedal.
3. Object: For Ebow electric guitars. Non-synchronous loops create a pandiatonic wash from a seven-chord sequence of ascending 5th progressions.
In general, all these pieces are music for sleep (or drifting, in general). Play at a relatively low volume.
