Fifteen free form compositions / improvisations from Perfect Point (2003).

a musical poem of sorts is a calling card featuring Lloyd Garber making extraneous guitar noises. A cadence of scribbles (flashes), a drunken clown, an improv painter and autumn Toronto.

A Scratch Thump Pling Plunk production in association with Succulent Fruit.
