Joseph Fraioli shows the usage of a diddley bow, a primitive a two stringed electric slide guitar with a contact pickup inside a closed can for amplification. The ekdahl moisturizer is a spring reverb / filter unit designed to be abused, its sonic capabilities have been furthered by a number of modifications. These devices are being processed through the eventide h8000fw with one of his custom reverb patches.

The sessions intent was to find new was to generate interesting tonal ambiences and sweeteners that live on the line between organic and electronic.
