Fin! T-minus zero
It's all a numbers game.
I had eleven new songs. I played a half dozen instruments and made dozens of layers. I got eight horn players and one drummer and drove about a hundred miles out of town and set up in an eight-sided solar-powered room named "The Octagon" to record songs with names like Blue #3, Spin Sevens, Outnumbered, and Integer.
Everything. Literally everything swirls in numeric cycles -- but, lately, life hasn't been a perfect circle. The cycle has edges and corners, but we still make it around -- like an octagon.
At the end, everything was summed down to zeros and ones to make two channels of sound that you can download for zero dollars from this IP address: 22.214.171.124
