      LINER NOTES

      The six pieces on Trebly were performed live in 2002 and
      2003 using MAX/MSP software. To avoid boring the audience
      with noodling improvisations, I pre-composed each piece in
      small modular sections. My job once on stage was to combine
      these sections in a way that made musical sense. With the
      exception of the final track from Terrace Club, which
      develops one idea, this modular approach creates music with
      many contrasting sections. For me, the interest is in the
      balance between these sections.

      NATHAN MICHEL BIOGRAPHY

      Nathan Michel makes music in both the classical and rock
      traditions. His debut album of melodic, lo-fi electronic
      music entitled "abc def" was released in 2002 on Tigerbeat6
      records, and he performs live with computer, keyboards,
      voice, and other instruments.

      Currently a Ph.D. composition fellow at Princeton
      University, Nathan has also studied with Elliott Schwartz at
      Bowdoin College, with Louis Andriessen in Amsterdam, and at
      Yale University with Ezra Laderman and Martin Bresnick.
      Recognition for his work has come from Yale, Bowdoin, ASCAP,
      and the American Academy of Arts and Letters from whom he
      received a 2002 Charles Ives Scholarship.

      His interests range from the concision and rhythmic vitality
      of Stravinsky to the poetic ramblings of Captain Beefheart,
      and some things in between.

      "Dear Bicycle", Nathan's second record for Tigerbeat6 was
      released in July 2003, and a recording of his live
      performances entitled "Trebly" will be out November 2003 on
      the Italian label Mr.Mutt.

      LINER NOTES

      The Nervous Center, now closed, was a comfortable coffee
      shop and invaluable meeting place for Chicago's improvising
      and avant-garde musicians. On several occasions TV Pow
      performed in thier basement, often to very small or non
      existent audiences which created a great environment for
      recording. This CDR documents one of those performances.
      Many thanks to Richard and Ken Syska, proprietors of The
      Nervous Center, for all of their hard work and dedication to
      Chicago music, without whom this recording would not exist.

      TV POW BIOGRAPHY

      TV Pow is a trio of composers and free improvisers first
      organized in Tokyo 1995 by Michael Hartman and Brent
      Gutzeit, and later joined by Todd Carter in the move to
      Chicago in 1996.

      They employ samplers, percussion, invented instruments,
      synthesizers, turntables, tape manipulation, computers and
      multi-speaker surround-sound systems in a constantly
      evolving soundscape of sparkling electronics, ambient
      drones, minimalist techno, and cinematic field recordings.

      Creating through live performance something both new and
      recombinant, TV Pow has toured throughout Japan, Europe,
      and the United States
