Nelson Baboon must finally face the music and proclaim who and what exactly he is. This is not easy, for it is his talent to find counterexamples to everything, even his own blatherings.
It's safe to say that he's an improvising musician who has wasted a lot of years, and is finally putting some stuff 'out there'.
He finds the resultant feedback loop to be quite interesting, in that his music has evolved more in the last couple of years than in the last few hundred.
He is enjoying experimenting with 'real' instruments – mostly violin, which he studied as a child, and blending them in various ways with electronic instruments of various sorts.
One of these days he will actually finish a composition as intended, but the improvisatory process always seems to corrupt the original intent beyond recognition.
