Elephantom . Commentary ..
The title Elephantom was prepared for an album that is now called 1/2 after 5. When I got the sample-editing software Passport Alchemy in 1995, and completed the first work Alchemically Scratched, I decided to use the title Elephantom for another album that fully featured Alchemy. At first Elephantom was planned as a collection of audio work using a slow overlapping technique to create gradually changing eerie sound textures. While I was creating strange sound files with Alchemy, I was also about to edit my old pre-computer generated work from the 1980’s. This gradually changed the album’s concept into assembling a collection of my old ideas that I did not/could not complete when I first thought of them. I began to work with older ideas, but when I had a newer idea, I always wanted to try the newer one. Working intermittently back and forth between making newer work, with new ideas, and finishing older work later, the project entered a long time span. The concept then again changed into the idea of making a collection of work from various periods as a two disk set of older and newer work: The Memorial Junk (a ten year assortment) and Elephantom (a twenty two year assortment).
