Massa Circles approach to recording fits neatly with their noise-mentality and live experimental concept. All four tracks were done in a single take with zero overdubbing, driven by an overarching desire for a non-digital sounding end product achieved via various re-amping techniques. The complex process involves allowing the microphones to capture studio vibrations and subtle synth nuances such as phasing; in doing so incorporating the palpable elements inherent to a live performance back into the recording. This arrangement uses the idea of the room being a speaker in itself, in which the entire human body becomes an ear encompassing all senses. Massa Circles have now transmitted their live idiosyncrasies into the form of an EP, encapsulating their magical talent without dulling the raw emotion or distinct power.
