Containment Failure [disquiet0257]

I took three tracks by and subjected them to considerable digital abuse, the object being to approximate the levels of noise and distortion achieved through using electronics, instruments, recorded sound and electrical systems by such masters as Merzbow, LaMonte Young, Throbbing Gristle, early Sonic Youth and Keiji Haino, among hundreds of others.

Then the program crashed and the whole thing disappeared. So I started rebuilding it. Half way through that the tracks vanished in front of my eyes. Then most of the original reappeared. This is the result. It certainly lived up to its title.

May cause temporary hearing impairment, tinnitus and a fear of software.
