Most of  the BLADDER BAGS and INTERLUDES CD (1992 , Vanilla Records,  Japan) is aptly described as "ultra noise",  and given the sensibility at work,  the visuals do justice to the crawl through  trash in evidence here.  This archival release harkens back to Controlled Bleeding's noise roots as well as to my beginnings in gestural abstraction.  All paintings were done to scale,  shrinking gesture and brush velocity to the size of a CD booklet. Keep in mind that at this point I had very little faith in most alternative record companies' ability to reproduce my work,  but in this case,  immediacy won over cost-cutting and sloppiness.
