Concluding this year’s string of monthly releases, I present “Circadian”, an improvisational album of which all three sequential workouts were recorded within one circadian cycle.
The thirteenth “Reduct”, a series that has started in 2008 and is, despite a long hiatus until early 2018, still my outlet for contemporary work in the realm of dub. “Antumbra” came to be whilst preparing for my show at Yaga in Lithuania last summer, resulting in an acidious dub house track with a cosmic flair. “Penumbra” is its technoid counter with a faster rhythm and deeper groove.
“Transformational Content”, the second Minute Of Arc album. An album that took a full year to complete, and another three to release. Musically, it floats within the realm of electro, but technically, the tracks originate from studio sessions that cross between various electronic styles. There is no apparent reason for the delayed release. However, from my point of view it is interesting to see how the MOA sound is evolving over time and that these tracks are still holding up.
Released under a Creative Commons license, “AS” is a freely available album containing four recorded sessions, exercising my signature sequencing and playing techniques.
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.
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.
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.
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.
New podcast for Circles & Spheres, containing various recordings I did in the past four years, some of which unreleased.
The podcast was recorded using an iPad Pro running Traktor + NI Kontrol Z1.
