about

An EP of punny origin and apolitical intent, seeking to combine the president’s voice with Bach’s music in a number of different ways. The methods range from process pieces and feedback improvisations to ambient tracks and beat-oriented affairs, hopefully giving insight into the effects of taking a title too far.
