Based on a tune composed several years ago as part of the 24-Hour Project at the University of Wisconsin-Eau Claire, this single represents the first of hopefully many entirely Beacon-produced projects!! "Unconventional" is probably the best way to describe the guerrilla tactics we employed in this project, most of which was recorded in a coat closet "acoustically treated" with couch cushions, pillows, and blankets...however, we are incredibly proud of the final product and will be able to draw upon the many lessons learned through this process (most the hard way) in our future projects!
