These tracks are sketches for live pieces or demos that, for whatever reason, never progressed past demo form. Tracks 2-5 are backing tracks or demos for my performances in the Austin New Music Co-Op's "Electrons And Phonons" shows 2006-2009. "'Whiskey, Cigars, And Old Pink Floyd Records' in G Minor" is a demo of an installation piece that was realized once at the Lone Star School Of Music in 2006, and once at the Church Of The Friendly Ghost's New Year's Eve Concert December 31, 2009. "Rainy Day" and "BWT" are demos that never got worked on further. I don't really know why. I'm not really sure why "BWT" got called "BWT," to be honest with you. But there you go.
