"According to Graves, additional musicians were supposed to be involved in the recording, but "people couldn't cut it. I had a few name guys in there, but they couldn't understand the concept... Sonny Morgan, he was just an unbelievable guy. He was the one who could cut it. So, we'd wind up with just a duo." Regarding the titles of the pieces, Graves explained that they were assigned numbers according to how many beats were in each measure. Concerning the use of the term "nothing", Graves stated: "I was really involved with yoga... Bernard had said something about being nothing. I remember telling him, 'I want it "Nothing."' I didn't make a commitment to Buddhism or anything, but I was reading all that stuff... So, by the time that record came, all of that was there." (wikipedia)
