Matt Davignon revisited several tracks he recorded between 1994 and 1997 which he refers to as his "pop song" period, through the use of live television, tape machines, and delay pedal feedback. He then mixed them into new slow motion versions, shifting several of them in reverse. The resulting tracks are unusual music to be played in 4/4 tempo much like an imaginary 40 foot tall upset stomach. Other tracks sound like misunderstood exaggerations of trip-hop.
