Muhal performing solo on synthesizer. Itís a mind-trip to hear some of the handclap sounds that are so closely associated with hip-hop music exist in this piece. This is a great experiment that, to one degree, dehumanizes Muhalís music, but at the same time retains its human element. Also the fake record scratching sounds and raygun-shots are married with Muhalís sense of harmony. It is truly Imagined.
