Poole improvises on a Martin acoustic guitar using an alternate tuning of his own invention. He is concerned with the perfect fourth, the neutral third, and the micro uneven intervals between. This ends up sounding fairly reminiscent of John Fahey's playing in the 60's. The music was documented using a pair of Calrec 1050 condenser mics, and a Tascam DAP1 digital audio tape recorder.
