Web site: https://www.tradebit.com
All music written, produced performed and arranged by Scott Marino.
With the exception of the female singing and Viola on "But I Want To," performed by Erin Skehan, and the female vocals on "Forgetting Dreams to Survive," performed by Nicole Beatty. Special thanks to both of them for helping complete these songs.

Everything''s Mechanical (3:11)
A particular focus for this song was accenting certain lyrics with sounds created from the originally recorded vocal track. Theses sounds were cut, reversed, elongated and looped, making percussive and melodic punctuations. They needed to be interesting sonically while still playing an important roll in supporting the lyrics and vocals. They were then layered below a new vocal track. This was the first song in which Marino used this technique, which has further developed in his more recent music. This song was recorded at Whiteroom Records Studio.

Forgetting Dreams to Survive (2:36)
The purpose of this song was inspired by Steve Rullman of the HoneyComb (https://www.tradebit.com). The intent was to write a song in two days during the week and have it ready to be played by the DJ on the weekend for people to dance to at Respectable Street Cafe, a night club in West Palm Beach. This song was recorded at Whiteroom Records Studio.

But I Want To (2:38)
A collaboration between Marino and Skehan. The song originally was created using a sampling of Skehan''s viola. Melodies were then created from the loops, and Skehan returned with a full melody, which was recorded and later arranged into a pop song structure. The song was revisited two years later and recorded with Skehan and Marino singing together. "But I Want To" was recorded at Whiteroom Records Studio. The final mix was done By Gallo Rivera at GR MUSIC (https://www.tradebit.com).


CURISAU
John Gayle: Vocals and Guitar
Scott Armetta: Vocals and Bass Guitar, Six-Stringed Bass
Scott Marino: Keyboards, Drums, Sampling, Clarinet, and Saxophone.
Web site: https://www.tradebit.com
All music written, produced performed and arranged by Curisau.
Recorded at Chair Studios by John Gayle, Scott Marino and Scott Armetta on an eight-track Roland DM 800 and an eight-channel Mackie mixing board.

Falling (3:34)
This song was the last song including Scott Armetta, John Gayle and Scott Marino. Some interesting things to listen for are the changing pitch of the wood block, the controlled decay of the static samples and the bass guitar (Fender VI, six-string) being plucked above the neck along with the running bass line blended together with the keyboards on the chorus.

Sweetheart (4:45)
The first and last song Scott Armetta had primary vocals on before completely devoting himself to visual art. You can see his art work at (https://www.tradebit.com)

Molly Gaybles (6:46)
The main concern in this song was structure and changes. The band all agreed that this would be a long song with many changes. It was written on a giant chalkboard and then discussed for about a month. This song included clarinets and saxophones played by Marino, and violin played by Gayle. As the song slows down, a kitten named Gilmore who lived at Chair Studios can be heard in the background, playing with a toy. Some other things to listen for are the time signature changes in the beginning, where it begins in 5/4 and moves to 4/4, for example, and vocal parts sung by Gayle with his head inside a giant street lamp cover.

ARTHURS CHAIR
John Gayle: Vocals and Guitar
Scott Armetta: Bass Guitar
Scott Marino: Keyboards, Drums, Sampling, Clarinet, and Saxophone.
Web site: https://www.tradebit.com
All music written, produced performed and arranged by Arthurs Chair.
Recorded at Chair Studios by John Gayle, Scott Marino and Scott Armetta on an eight-track Roland DM 800 and an eight-channel Mackie mixing board.


Box it up (3:36)
An aggressive song including various samples from horror movies and a marching beat inspired by "You Me and Rainbows" by the Tear Garden. In order to make the piece build up, its catchy intro is repeated later in the song at the suggestion of Revolt Records producer Robert Stojack (https://www.tradebit.com).


Counting Days (3:02)
Another aggressive song from Arthurs Chair. This was one of the first songs written by the band before Armetta joined and they developed into the more creative band Curisau.


Sloppy Bloody (3:16)
This was a crossover song that moved the band to more changes, soon following the new creation of Curisau. The break toward the end of the song was made using a tin whistle and banging pots and pans together.

If I Step Outside, Will I Follow the Animal? (2:24)
This song was written by Gayle from samples and sequenced keyboard ideas made by Marino, which were stored in his keyboard. The highlight is the choir part near the end of the song, which was multi-tracked and sung completely by Gayle.


BEEPS AND TONES
Scott Marino: Keyboards and Samples
Web site: https://www.tradebit.com
All music written, produced performed and arranged by Scott Marino.
Recorded at: Whiteroom Records Recording Studio. All sounds made in Cubase with the single sound oscillator VST plug-ins and lots of VST effects.

Dance of the water Drops (1:48)
All the sounds in this song are created from another tone in the song. The original sounds originate from a single tone VST plug-In song. No keyboard is ever used to write any of the BEEPS AND TONES songs. They are all written by drawing notes on the staff, finding the most interesting parts, then looping them. Usually they are processed with effects, cut to pieces, and then scattered around to other parts of the song. (This writing style is used with all BEEPS AND TONES compositions.)

Learning (1:52)
The introduction to this song is a sample from an old out-of-tune piano given to Marino by his grandmother. The part was originally written for a song called "Crying Wolf" but was later separated and mixed alone for this song. Played together, the two songs match up seamlessly, starting with "Crying Wolf" and ending with "Learning."

A Song to Walk To (1:59)
This is a simple song that follows the same song structure as a radio friendly pop song. It was later named by a friend who said that the song made him feel like he was walking.
