Silent Synthesis was originally a duo, me and Patrick. However shortly after the first few tracks, Patrick left the group to pursue an alternative rock outfit. The first four tracks were done collaboratively, and the rest were solo.

This album was among my first experiences producing music electronically. All of the songs were made exclusively in Audacity, a trend that would carry on for the next 4 SS releases.

All the tracks were done at high school, save a couple minor tweaks. Most mornings I would get up around 3 or 4 and head down to the school. Nobody else around, I’d plug my laptop into a wall charger just outside the library and edit glitch recordings through tinny speakers with the fan whirring noisily behind.
