    This free 2 track EP encompasses a pair of Distance to Jupiter tracks, originally made available in the letters section of 2600 Magazine. The letter contained a set of links to two previously unreleased hacker-themed Distance to Jupiter tracks from the 1999-2000 time period, both of which were directly inspired by 2600 Magazine. Released under a Creative Commons license ("open source" for music), the goal was to let anyone use, remix, tweak, and build upon these tracks (even commercially), as long as the source credit was maintained. 2600 Magazine appreciated the music and published the DropBox links for readers of the magazine in the Autumn, 2013 issue (volume 30, issue #3)! Choice quote: "...we want to thank you for thinking of us and for being creative - and especially for doing both at the same time."

about

'Hacker Ethos' is an unreleased track, originally part of the "High Resolution" session, which made its debut on MP3<dot>com in 2000. 'Channel 144' is also unreleased, originally part of the "Electrophonic" recordings, also released in 2000 via MP3<dot>com. This track's haunting morse code sample was a found sound, encountered late at night on channel 144 of Dish Network, accompanied by a strange test pattern on the screen. It was quickly sampled before it vanished, never to reappear. Both tracks were performed live, and recorded direct to MiniDisc. Instruments used consisted of a Roland MC-505 Groovebox, Boss SP-202 Sampler, and a customized handheld noise-generator.
