    "The Pulaski Bridge and Newtown Creek (over which it spans) are regular fixtures in my daily life, geographical features that I move on or over with great frequency. As I developed this system--which i did over very long durations of listening, mostly very late at night or early in the morning--and gradually felt the need to be able to differentiate certain settings from others, it made sense to name them, somewhat arbitrarily, for things that were close at hand. These systems and intervals had become very familiar to me, and during my long listening sessions in the hours on the edges of sleep, I often had the sensation of them moving from the foreground of my attention to the background and then back again. They became more like a kind of geography or weather than ‘music’." - Che Chen
