The Spring 2009 Coldwater Studios sessions saw demo recordings of new Billy Corgan compositions, recorded at Kerry Brown's Los Angeles studio. 54 songs were demoed in total, backed by Mark Tulin on bass and Kerry Brown on drums. While the songs would initially be performed with the short-lived Spirits in the Sky and Backwards Clock Society projects that summer, the best 44 of these 54 songs would form the basis of the Teargarden by Kaleidyscope project, including additional material written after this initial demo session.

Tracks recorded[edit | edit source]

None of the recordings from these sessions specifically are known to have been released, though several have either been re-recorded or have been performed live.
