From an enclosed paper strip:
"Black Utopia directs the logic of string theory and the tactics of speculative fiction toward exploring the ephemeral Sun Ra - Alton Abraham Audio Archives at the Experimental Sound Studio, collected vintage Lp's, interviews and eavesdropping recorded in Chicago from 2010 to 2012, and performed commissions from Chicago artists Krista Franklin and Avery R. Young.

Edited by Cauleen Smith. Mixed and Mastered by Todd Carter at the Experimenal Sound Studio, June 2012. Produced by Threewalls, Chicago, Experimental Sound Studio, and Cauleen Smith.
