The works represented here are remastered versions of early experiments with sound, previously only available on tape. Mostly devoid of rhythm and melody, yet utilizing a variety of instruments played in real time, Ken has chosen the term: organic abstract music. While this collection can be classified as ambient noir, there is a definite nod to the avant garde. Targeting a specialized audience, Convictions From My Extraction is the most comprehensive release from Anvil Creations spanning a period of at least ten years, dating back to 1972. Fans of the artist will appreciate the quality of the reproductions on this compact disc.

"This is cutting edge stuff. What I enjoyed most about this recording is how unpretentious it is. This isn't some art house noodling. It's seriously cool experimentation and sound manipulation! It's experimental, varied, and challenging to listen to but in a really easy way. It's fun! But fun in a mysterious way, not fun in a light-hearted way. If you like exploring the places where sound and music meet (with little or no overt dissonance) or if you're looking for something truly unique and creative, Convictions From My Extraction should please you. -Bill Binkelman, Wind and Wire magazine
