Artist notes:

For scoria, I referred to the feeling of muscle fatigue caused by repetitive motion, which occurs when playing the same drum pattern over and over for a long time.I used many ways how beats can melt for this piece. Listening in this track means that you can use your ears to experience the process of muscle recovery through muscle fatigue caused by repetitive motion.

If you keep eating salty food, you will not feel salty food as salty, right? This track uses that kind of effect.
