vance orchestra have been one of my favest 'ambient' projects (together with maeror tri and a couple more). for long i wanted to make a cdr or cd release of their work and when finally i discussed it with mars the project has split. mars was workin under the (ad)vance(d) name in a style not so different the the actual vance orchestra stuff.
at the same time i was and still am fond of red dot comics and zenia's work. no matter that sadly i don't have (actually never had that much) time to focus also on comics from time to time i check whatever i can. absurd did 1 collaboration with red dot actually contributed a short story in an issue of the zine together with other people too and the idea was born for another collaborative issue. don't recall why was delayed, etc however absurd's contribution this time was to be a vance orchestra (that turned to (ad)vance(d) cdr. issue was delayed so the cdr came under red dot's credit in a separate edition.
