The chemical imbalance theory of mental illnesses such as anxiety and depressive disorders, has been widely criticized by pshychological research but remains in the popular consciousness and as a basis for treatments. Medicine, prescribed or otherwise, may actually cause a chemical imbalance though, and that is the subject of the music on this tape.

“The skeleton to these tracks came when I worked a lot with samples, weird sounds like those of Sun Ra, The Residents, world music records and “found” sounds. I wanted to get away a bit from the 4/4 beats of the Stålverk 12”-es but not go ambient either, maybe find the space in between. Mixing them some years later, I had found a working method by doing various remixes, where I like to compress the sound or squeeze it together and then fill the void with static, to make the music sound far away, that is the sound I always had in my head. (Lo Olle in 2018)”
