It was senior year in high school and I was grappling with two conflicting identities of both wanting to grow up and yearning to stay a child.
These tracks were the result of experimenting with a melodic text-to-speech tool for the Macintosh.
I have a vivid memory of having gone on a senior trip and leaving my iBook G3 in the trunk of my car in the school parking lot, right around the time I composed these songs.
This was also right around when Radiohead released their album Hail to the Thief. My parents had just installed a pool in our backyard and I was dating a Mormon girl.
