Rhode test is an old composition. It is difficult to remember where the ideas and inspiration came from. I do know it is from the same period as Road-detest. It may have even come from the same original idea. Who knows?
It was a very basic track, just a sketch, when I returned to it recently. It had developed somewhat since then, and I wanted to hear it on a few different stereo systems before release. So it was exported, made into an mp3 and listened to in various places. I had every intention of going back and tweaking. That never happened. By making the track a coherent entity, I had breathed life into it, I had set it free.
