everyone's related
everyone is family
everyone is kinfolk
our roots are tangled

everybody's brother
everybody's sister
everybody's mother
listen to me mister!

we all live together on a mudball in the sky
so why can't we be "we?"


That's the first verse of a jokey song I wrote circa 1980.
I even got a linguist friend to make me a list of the statement "everyone is related" in a bunch of different languages for the outro/fade. But I never finished the song.

In '83 I bought a Casio MT-65 and a cutec 4-track cassette recorder to flesh out demos of my stupid guitar music. Instead, I got sidetracked into inventing AEJOTZ music, or as I termed it at the time, "21st Century Muzak." I imagined it as ever-present repetitive background music for Orwellian factory workers. The best example of this idea was an approximately seven minute instrumental version of the unfinished song, "mudball."

The bass line is one of those catchy little riffs that follows me around. I recently entered it into the microbrute's sequencer to play around with and recorded it with the main backing line. It sat around going nowhere for the past week or so. Today I wanted to do some noodling and saw that there was something on the recorder. I almost erased it before deciding to give it a fresh treatment. Here it is.

The first part is microbrute, the drums are microsampler (using microkorg and PSR-520 drum sounds) and the next to the last part is the "Cosmo" CZ-101. Everything else is microkorg.
