The first full-length, "Painting," is a collection of 10 songs written over a fairly long period of time. Most was written in Seattle, but a few stragglers (most obviously, 'Rat Race') were done in Brooklyn. Again, this record was tracked almost entirely in a bedroom with Stuart cobbling together samples, twisting them, re-arranging things layer upon layer. Completion of this record led down a new path though, through an exciting collaboration with producer/engineer Joel Hamilton during the mix. With Joel, the true possibilities of the studio began to reveal themselves. It was the beginning of a step away from the computer, with sounds traveling, finally, through air.
