    On "Time of the Sines", I improvise on a heavily distorted and sustained electric guitar over a cycling synth part. This piece is an excerpt and is actually much longer.

Q: How did you become so talented? ....Phaney
A: To quote the famous steel guitarist, Jerry Byrd, "Talent is extremely overrated." No one is born with innate talent. The only way someone becomes proficient in music is through practice. Every day. That means practicing at the beginning every day when you sound terrible because you haven't learned yet, but your drive and ambition to learn keeps pushing you through that time until you start sounding better. There are no shortcuts. It's the only way.
