about

120 MINUTES is a series of one-minute etudes using a 4060 integrated circuit (a particular CMOS [Complimentary Metal Oxide Semiconductor]) and other random assorted electrical components on a breadboard; primarily light-emitting diodes and capacitors, to create varying beats, tones, and textures.

The recordings are presented here as is, in original order with no deletions and with no post production except for start and end edits to clean out recording device artifacts.
