The members of Cristal came together in a Richmond, Virginia kitchen over a batch of sangria in 2001. The band members, Jimmy Anthony, Greg Darden and Bobby Donne (who is also a member of Labradford & Aix Em Klemm) use a variety of electronic devices, sources, and recording locations to improvise and/or compose. The result has been described as post-structuralist sound collage and can be beautiful, relaxing, chaotic or challenging, sometimes all at once. Volume is critical. The limited, first pressing of this release is available as a three inch CD in a unique jewel case. Three inch CDs will play in all tray-loading or portable CD players.
