Hardware: Various from a complex modular system.
Checks Cashed is played live with modular synthesis system. It is a dark progressive trance-like experience; a reflection of the coming tide of resistance. Minimal techno orientated, the album is an experimental format, modular audio search. Name of the album came out of its cover.
