Wintex-Cimex 83 is a collection of four pieces taken from the same source material as the album, Constants. Although emerging from the same sound-world, these four oblique, highly personal works stand alone as experiments in stasis and function as a sibling release. Recorded between 2007 and 2013, the material was assembled in fragments: a continually evolving and shifting process that allowed refinement and reworking of idiosyncratic recording and compositional techniques.

Thematically, these works are informed by "radar, dying stars, aeronautics, ailing short waves flickering in the troposphere, the ghost of JG Ballard". The pieces extend Chris' long-standing interest in the extensive manipulation of found sounds and environmental sources. Vertical movement and flecks of cellular detail hint at the implication of rhythm within subtly shifting sound layers.
