This compact disc is the reissue of the highly acclaimed (Prix Ars Electronica Winner) MiniDisc-only release from 1998, about which they said:

"This is the first ever MiniDisc only release." (Alan Phillips, Sony Software)

This Gescom Production, assembled by Sean Booth and Rob Brown [Autechre] and Russell Haswell, has conquered the technological restrictions inherent in the MiniDisc format. Battling against the ATRAC compression system, they have succeeded in producing a masterful perambulation of sonic experimentation. 45 tracks have been sliced into 88 portions for your ease of dissemble-age. Thus the listener can loop and shuffle at will. Resulting carnage. Culling together years of source material, "MiniDisc" is a collection of multi-styled mood music, ranging from full on hip-hop beats to shoe-gazing ambience to bangin'.
