CHOP: An action taken with an ax or a cleaver. In musical terminology... CHOP: to cut up a portion of a song by cutting and pasting and/or warping. The music I make is called "Electronica" and one of the things that sets it apart from other genres is that the music is frequently not playable on any instrument. I may have started with a guitar line but after chopping it up, rearranging it, warping it, reversing it, adding dead stutter space, and subtly tweaking effects it is no longer a guitar that I am playing. It is Ableton Live itself that is my true instrument and my intent is to play with attitude and bloody feeling.

Take an ax and chop and chop and chop and yet your feelings about that life will remain long after it's given up the ghost. I chopped and chopped in Ableton Live but in the end what remains is an expression of my feelings that lingers in the music. To that end, the song is a perfect fit for The Bleeding Cut.
