"The River" was inspired by the compositional approaches of Can and Miles Davis. Nearly an hour of improvised guitar was recorded, which was then chopped up, processed and re-arranged into one 20 minute piece of music. Maelstrom is an aural overloading of the senses. While "The River" is a musical description of the landscape of an industrial city, "Maelstrom" is the inner journey of a person living in that same environment.
