    We were just in love with this music so much that I needed it to be even more real, so we made a CD :) Of this run, there are going to be about 150 of these available to the general public. The rest are going to every willing non-commercial radio station in the country, because I'm old school like that.

    For the CD we did all the good stuff - it comes in a jewel case, with a 4 page booklet. Inside the booklet features the hands, eyes, and heart of Mell Picco who did the records design work. This CD is everything you'd expect from an electronic music release of the early 90's ;)

about

Exploring the vastness of space, vt100 continue's their search for the lucid pulse. Within the pulse's center is the music, the life energy of the 5th consciousness, and the essence of vt100's mission.

During the third extension, vt100 expresses tales of their journey. To the distant planets of Thesia, and it's dark moon, Pyrrhic. To the twists and turns they faced when they were alone, seemingly lost in endless space. To the unique fears only excitement can bring. A deep tale that wanders across the dark, and the light.

At the end of the extension, vt100 finds themselves altered. Bent into a new shape, a new form, yet not with a new purpose. They must express the pulse and their new form provides them new tools with which to do so.

And so, vt100 continues onward, across the torn edges of the universe, thriving and dancing, searching and learning, and never ceasing, accepting of their forever yearning.
