- "Kandu vs. Corky (Horrorca)" is based around drones and "bell-shaped" instruments like sine waves (even the rhythm follows a bell-curve pattern).
- "The Lugubrious Library Loft" is based on every instrument being played by two people - even the vocals (the vocalists basically go mouth-to-mouth, then one makes a sound while the other moves their mouth around to make the consonants - it's a really cool effect).
- "Brown Light Upon Us" is based on the concept of hearing a performance in another room - you know how sometimes you'll be in a building where a performance is going on in another part of the building so what you're hearing sounds like indeterminate noise to you? Driver took that idea and wrote a piece that's meant to be heard that way - the instruments perform in one room while the recording stuff is set up in another. The weakest track on the album in my opinion, as it feels to me like nothing much really goes on with it.
- "Eptaceros" is based on an extended technique (that's when you use non-standard methods of playing the instrument - think John Cage's prepared pianos) used by Kayo Dot's then-trumpeter. It's really creepy and cool sounding, probably my favorite on the album.
