Beyond Black: Project ‘Preserve Destiny’

May 7, 2017

This is a reworking of the ‘Above Black’ album, imagined as data recovered after millennia locked on magnetic media. Partially corrupted; only some of the original data remains, so interpolation has been used to reconstruct the messages left for any sentient beings who discover them. Created using the source files taken from the original improvised performance, which was direct to DAT.

S.E.T.I. – The Guide Lockstars of Astro Myrmex

August 5, 2016

Available for pre-order from TXT Recordings is the new album from S.E.T.I. following the travels of Astro Myrmex.

01 Instrument Calibration
02 Mirach
03 Black Engines
04 Gravity Stupor
05 Adhil
06 Almach
07 LoS Jitter Summary

Recorded between 1984 and 2016. Mixed and rendered at Studio FWD.

Astro Myrmex continues the journey initiated by the Nibiru Cataclysm via the various paths previously described in ‘The Data Logs of Astro Myrmex’. In order to navigate the vast regions of interstellar loneliness, guide ‘lockstars’ are identified and used as signposts. To document the deep space anomalies encountered, a soundtrack of events has been composed and presented here.

These recordings sometimes contain programming and compositing incidents that may seem out of place. They are to be considered part of the audio image and not discarded as errors.

Good bass response recommended for faithful rendition of recorded material.
