A live in the studio collaboration between Absoluten Calfeutrail (Mark Groves) and Blarke Bayer (Ben Andrews) Conflict Resolution Seminar offers five violent harsh noise and monstrous electric drone takes, at times also pushing towards terrain associated with present day power electronics. Text used as the basis of vocal content was appropriated from the corporate context, and deals with leadership, management and the resolution of workplace conflict. Listeners struggling with the expectation to exercise assertive behaviour and settle absurd disputes between colleagues during business hours should pay attention. Tracked and mixed in April 2008 by Marcus Cook (Default Jamerson) at Head Gap studio in Preston Victoria, during a windstorm that tore sections of the studio roof off and created intermittent brown-outs. Nature may have sought to sabotage, but this work exists regardless.
