Sharon Cheslow & Coterie Exchange release...
Experimental collages that you can hum to, filled to the brim with guitar feedback, samples, and analog electronic drones. Yeah, babies, it's got soul. This 22 minute release features three new solo recordings (including "Office of Global Communications" from the short video While the City Sleeps) and two live collaborations mixed with the enough free noise improv and percussive mayhem to make your mind expand. Only 50 copies, with handmade covers.

One of the collaborations, Sonic Triptych, is a composition for nine performers. The live recording features Sharon Cheslow, Blevin Blectum, Alyssa Lee Wilmot, Jenny Hoyston, Bianca Sparta & Ellie Erickson (of Erase Errata), Erin Weber (Crack: We Are Rock), Marisa Meltzer (Skirts), and Miya Osaki (7 Year Rabbit Cycle, The Teethe) - three sets of three represent themselves as a means of facilitating participatory action. The other collaboration is a noise fest with KIT -- Chris Touchton (aka Vice Cooler in XBXRX, Hawnay Troof), George Chen (7 Year Rabbit Cycle, Chen Santa Maria, Megaweapon), Kristy G (Warbler, Lil Pocketknife) -- from 2003 with guests Brian of Gang Wizard and Pete & Gabe of Yellow Swans.
