Liner Notes

“Errors in Calculating Odds, Errors in Calculating Value” is the fourth full-length LP by lo-fi indie rock band Shorthand Phonetics. It was first debuted on the internet in its entirety on the 16th of May 2009. This LP was exclusively recorded into a webcam mic to a HP Compaq Presario V3500 using Cakewalk Sonar 7 and FL Studio. This LP was recorded between September 2008 and April 2009.

“Errors” is an eighty minute concept album that is an aural representation of the first draft of Hanabishi Hideaki’s debut novel, “Errors in Calculating Odds, Errors in Calculating Value”. The novel is a recounting of the events of Hide’s third year in Eiroku Medical School located in Jikyoku-to, Japan.

The thing about this first draft is that the names used in this first draft still retain it’s original inspiration. Hide is Hide, Tsubasa is Tsubasa, Miyuki is Miyuki and so on and so forth. Each song represents a chapter in the final draft of the novel, and it is supported by an excerpt from the final draft of the novel. It is hard to explain with words, so it is imparitive that the album is listened to while reading the booklet provided.
