A software application designed for lossless reorganisation
of a sound file
into a shorter version of itself. Kind of inspired by the power of a photograph

into 1.8 second segments using this software. Then I played all these 333.3 individual segments
simultaneously, so what you hear is the total audio content of the original extract in only 1.8 seconds,
which is the time it takes for the record to rotate and is cut as a Locked Groove playing to infinity.
The new track is of course titled:
.Play composition: 'Short Work': [with Real Audio]
This will be released on the Orders EP a split 12" released by Snail Article [NYC] 2004
