Produced with a Minimoog, an Oberheim module, piano and home-made electric guitar on two TEAC 3340 4-track machines configured for an open loop. The mixer was a TEAC six-channel model, K. Leimer’s first solo album followed his cassette-only releases of Unpublished Philosophies, The Mind and its Likeness, Translucent and the single Fiction/Decade. “Four Pages from an Unfinished Novel” includes contributions by Marc Barreca and Anode.
