The album was recorded on a portable 16 track that Graeme Jefferies transports from one end of the globe to the other. It retains touchstones to his past work but still sounds up to date and current at the same time. He utilises fragments of TEAC 4 track "found sound" recordings to masterful effect and wedges original musical pieces into unexpected and interesting places. The new material is reminiscent at times of his groundbreaking work with New Zealand pioneers This Kind of Punishment.

Graeme plays all the instruments on the release (guitar, piano, viola, cello, drums, bass) and recorded all the songs over a period of years in various houses and hallways in New Zealand, Germany and Australia. His meticulous "take as long as it takes" approach to making records ensures a very wide pallet of sound. A rainbow of colours can be heard in his music, and although the material was initially conceived on either guitar or piano, by the time he has completed a recording, the arrangement is usually pretty special-complex and unlike any other person's version of man at the microphone -- one with no deadline and all the time in the world.
