Suite for Absynth in D minus USB 1008 - is the composite work comprised from the six individual artworks created by Jeremy for Daata Editions.
Titles and digitally altered music from Bach’s Cello Suite No. 2 in D minor BWV 1008 form the backdrop for each environment where a rat duck man named Uncle Sad Bedroom travels through fantastical video game versions of different moons in our solar system trying to find his place.
