From the archive.org page:
"This was a strange one for me, acting partly as a further experiment into sound manipulation, and partly as a remix album for 'Opal', 'I, Timewaster' and a few outside sources. I wouldn't consider this particularly fulfilling for anyone other than me to listen to, but I do consider it part of the Life is Easy canon and therefore have uploaded it here. Expect lots of awkward synth passages, either fresh or remixed, collided head on with the fraying edges of noise. Further on are some experiments with loops, acoustic guitars and vocals, most of which died out pretty quickly. I consider these tracks demos, especially 'Cognitions' and 'Unsub'. In time I will create a Trivia page explaining song titles, concepts and any brief use of lyrics in Life is Easy.
Ceremonial Cuttings was originally conceived in mid-to-late 2011 and contains off-the-books remixes for Mortiis and local rap-metal group Start! Start!. The artwork too, is of an unknown source that I found on the internet... playing a bit on the dangerous side there I know, but if anyone has any problems with the art please let me know and I'll take it down.
The tracks with the 'Dub' handle generally indicate a remix, and the tracks named after different colour lights are different interpretations of the track "Green Light" from 'I, Timewaster'."
