Re·use (r-yz) tr.v. re·used, re·us·ing, re·us·es. To use again, especially after salvaging or special treatment or processing. [TheFreeDictionary.com]

Truer words could not have been said for this the 31st release of the world wide web experimental music community, CT-Collective. The idea for ReUse began one day when I was awaiting the train, holding a plastic drink cup and subconsciously moving the straw about its cover making the familiar 'squeaky' sound. I had just recently participated in the CT-Collective project CT-Generative and wanted to lead a project. I thought why not do a recording of music produced entirely from things we often throw away and thus ReUse was born. Jim Goodin, Brooklyn, NY

The track ended up completely different to how I imagined it would. It was created using a washing machine drum that I pulled out of a dead washing machine whilst looking to see if there was anything I could salvage to make some noise inside. The wheel at the rear of the drum which connects to the belt has an amazing resonance to it but I couldn't shift it from the drum so I ended up keeping the whole thing. The track was made using two short samples (a few seconds a piece - one being the resonance, the other the pin of the drum, both captured via contact mic) and modifying them in Ableton Live to create a much wider selection of samples. I originally imagined a piece that would be more melodic but as I started to combine the tracks I realised it sounded like a strange imaginery wash cycle and so in homage to its origins I have gone with that flow.
