An ambient collage I put together in November 2001 using material from my friend Vincent Booth's unreleased album, The Sun Ain't So Heavy. He had already asked me to work a bit more with the original 1996 master; when I obtained a copy of Sonic Foundry's Vegas in 2001, I used the material to help me become familiar with its workings. This 15-minute collage (of which he approved) was the result.
Sadly, Vincent died in April 2010; among his projects that never saw completion was The Sun Ain't So Heavy.
I no longer have a copy of the album, but I recently found the CD3 I made with this track on it. According to my notes, it contains elements from the following tracks: Canyon, Juicy Dub, My Room, Ego's Radar, Under Black, Amaha, and Drinking Coffee in Traffic. I completed the collage on 24 November 2001.
For this edition, I have made a few very small edits to the original piece, shortening it by 34 seconds.
The accompanying image is a screenshot from an unrelated video Vincent and I collaborated on (he provided the main footage; I overlaid some of my own video and added the music) in 2007.
