I sent out a request (compositional concept) to my musical pals in Jackson, and Canton,and Bay St Louis, Mississippi to send me some short pieces of music, no more than one minute long, thinking that should be easy for them to do. I would take what was sent back
to me, hoping I would get something, anything back from anyone, and combine it all into a longer than one minute piece.
I got back a considerable amount of music of terrifically high quality and all much longer than one minute. I took the music, put it together, edited, processed, and added some music of my own to the mix and came out of the process with these six pieces. I think of this as
similar to sourdough mix for bread. You keep the dough, it makes more of itself, and then it keeps going. I could take the music sent to me and continue to create new pieces with it for a long time…

Liner notes by George Cartwright
The text for this piece is taken from a deposition of Ghislaine Maxwell taken in April 2016 by attorneys for Virginia Giuffre, who alleges that Maxwell recruited her and other underage girls as part of a sex-trafficking operation she ran with the financier Jeffrey Epstein. Maxwell was arrested by the Federal Bureau of Investigation on multiple charges in July 2020. Her trial is set for later this year.
The transcript was released in October 2020.
Thank you, Harpers Magazine; I hope you don’t mind.

The Sledge Hammer and The Feather.
Davey sent me a recording of him reading from his book "Solo Gig,' and I made the rest of the music to go with it. Editing, mixing, making sounds, etc. The title 'The Sledge Hammer and the Feather' is in the book (page 56), but if you need (why not?) to find all the text, you'll just have to, so to speak, ad Davey would say, look around.
