The chosen equipment set-up incorporated the (then cutting edge technology of) Roland TR,
TB, SH, CSQ series as the rhythmic foundation of the music. Rhythm patterns were written to the
TR-808 drum machine . This machine allowed 2 separate trigger sources to be written into each
respective pattern. Each trigger source was connected to an independent CSQ 600 digital
sequencer, which, in turn would advance 1 step upon receiving the trigger. Related song patterns
were then written to the 808 in a un-premeditated and wreckless manner . The plan behind this
was to endeavor to utilize sequencers in a manner which would offer an element of surprise.
Just prior to recording, an elected series of notes was mutually nominated. These notes were then
rapidly and impulsively entered (in any particular amount and order) into the CSQ sequencers.
With song tempo randomly selected (808) play was activated - voila!
