A Bit Strange

A brief visit from Paul T. I told him what I was doing - listening through headphones to snippets of soundtrack recorded 20 years ago. With Dr Strangelove on the left channel and Zardoz on the right. He found this greatly amusing, saying he'd known one other person who sat listening to two things at once. And this other had been paranoid schitzophrenic, known to friends as Eraserhead or Mad Dave.

I suppose it is rather strange to record TV soundtracks and use them to make music. But no stranger than tying six metal strings between two points, and feeding the vibrations through a digital box that simulates the failure of analog circuitry to deal with overlarge amplitude.
