Plugged 2015

This EP is a collection of ‘plugged’ songs I recorded live in my studio in 2015. Each song was recorded in one take and was documented on video for my YouTube channel (youtube.com/user/maskineri). Two of the songs were dissected for further processing and arranging, and will be released on the next full length Minute Of Arc album.

Ritual

This three-track EP is once again a change of pace from my recent output. Actually, it is a more experimental approach of the same pace. The three compositions are abstract by nature, but grounded by raw rhythmical structures. Even though the recordings originate from my hardware equipment, they have been processed extensively beyond recognition and set the scene for a surreal aural experience.

Includes the full 20-minute version of “Rituel Artificiel I” and the drone versions of all three compositions as bonus tracks.

LXXIII

Following my two-hour sections on a previous split album with Brian Grainger, I have returned to Psøma Psi Phi with a solo release. After some urging by Brian to expand on an improvisation I did with my Rhodes electric piano (which was released as part of a charity compilation: https://meganmccarthy.bandcamp.com/album/3067-megs), I sat down in front of the piano for almost an hour and ended up recording my most intimate ambient piece to date.

Tritonian Shores

This album is an aural imagination of distant galactic scapes. “Néphos” is a collage of various sound designs, some more abstract than others, whereas the title track is a 53-minute soundscape with a dronal emphasis.
