‘Sleeves’ is a series of spontaneous rhythmic records that were activated and informed by the soundtrack of the studio during a period of sonic exploration. They are the blank TDKs tracklist, the liner notes, the 808 kits and the sax solos. They are “…the frantic scrawls on the producers track sheet and the songwriters notebook.”
