The nearly hour-long instrumental interplay on Infrared Roses (1991) came from a variety of concert performance excerpts circa 1989 and 1990. The audio was reconfigured and combined into four distinct multi-movement suites - all of which were named by Grateful Dead lyricist Robert Hunter. Opening the disc is the ng "Crowd Sculpture," setting the communal pre-show scene with a mélange of sonic experiences starring the typical Grateful Dead parking lot denizens doing their respective thing.

This CD is an ADD recording. Multi-track analog tape was mixed to a digital format and then digitally mastered for the CD. The original multi-track recordings were all done on a twenty-four track analog machine using Dolby SR noise reduction. Two-track masters were used in "Crowd Sculpture," Parallelogram," "Speaking in Swords," "Sparrow Hawk Row," and "River of Nine Sorrows." These masters were transferred to the twenty-four-track recordings, manipulated, and processed for the final result. "Silver Apples of the Moon" was recorded as MIDI data into a computer during several performances and was edited and orchestrated from the computer before being recorded as sound information on the multi-track tape.
