A message from Sandtimer...
It was supposed to be the first collaboration album between myself and The Chessmaster
I contacted him and we agreed it would be for the best to work together.
Two minds better than one.
He spoke in concise sentences. Brief emails, always signed with an X.
Who is this guy?
A month passed and nothing.
One night I receive an email from a strange co.jp account.
A zip file, X.zip
I download, unzipped and my computer screen turned black, strings of random characters in a red font dripping down the screen like blood.
After a 30 minute boot-up, I restart computer and all my contents have been erased, my OS reset to factory settings.
Only one thing left. A folder full of strange audio clips.
I mashed these clips into an album with my own music.
'In Search Of The Chessmaster'
I never heard from him again.
