We built this site for the side project band of the Slipknot founder, Clown. We had a few phone discussions with him while he was on tour with Slipknot and he gave us a very loose idea of what he was after. He made us feel like he had alot of faith in what we'd come up with which was really nice, and that made the whole project really enjoyable.

He wanted something that people could just mess about with and get a taste of the album while they were doing it. The term he used was "a trip through a wormhole"...

So we came up with a bunch of concepts which would utilize randomness to the maximum. One thing that Clown was keen on was the number 11. The number of songs on his album, he was quite keen on this as it is also a prime number.

We came up with a set of levels, some with movement, some with buttons. The buttons, when clicked, would do random things. They would play music, soundloops or change the scenery.

We hired a Flash artist, Greg MacDonald, to set up the core Flash engine.
