This is really three improvs from three sessions that we split up and arranged to tell a story. The We Drew Lightning session is a complete improv that took place while doing over dubs for "Six". The Mesembryanthemum session is taken from a session that was just over an hour. The 5 pieces were taken from the meat of the session, with just a little at trimmed from the beginning and end. The pieces themselves are presented as they were captured, with no time edits in between. The Dome Trio is just a snippet from a session that Ben, Roland and Michael did after Ben and Roland moved out of the Geodesic Dome that they were living in, we set up in the empty dome and recorded.
