"Reduced", is, in my estimation, a great album. In a way, it is the quintessential album from this period. I believe it is also the album where I first started using a better microphone to record the sounds in my apartment. The album has it all-- fractal mashups of leaky pipes, beeping microwaves, and nails in a jar. Weird song-like pastiches made using the primitive technology of my abode. Straight-ahead field recordings, including two clandestinely recorded on the back stairwell, of the other residents of my building deep in conversation.
A standout piece was "Listening To Mystified". This was, simply, a field recording of me listening to my famous piece "Constant", together with all of the environmental sounds from Brannon and Chippewa. At one point in the piece, a siren sounds, and its sound joins the song of mystified's drone.
