Transgression/Dark Back Garden was originally created as a spoken word performance piece for the 2008 QLD Poetry Festival. A studio version was also recorded and released in a limited edition of 100 copies at the Festival.
Visual artist Sean Young provided the orchid photograph for the front cover and also created the video clip for the track, featuring dancer & choreographer Lisa O'Neill.
The original studio version (clocking in at over 12 minutes) was then remixed, refined and edited by James Lees in 2010. In 2012, the track has been re-released in an expanded EP format, featuring the remixed original version, a new remix by The Golden Leaf, an ambient mix and video edit version.
