01 Instrument Calibration
03 Black Engines
04 Gravity Stupor
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.

I have compiled some tracks I made while working in the attic of my parents’ house in London, between 1984-1987. There’s quite a bit of guitar, melancholy and some noisy drum machine workouts too. These were recorded while I was very active with Nagamatzu, so fans of Nagamatzu will be able to hear some of our trademarks here too. Star of the show has to be the Boss DE-200 digital delay that I used on most of my recordings from 1984-2000+ – see if you can spot where it’s been used.

As Nagamatzu were inspired so much by NASA and of course S.E.T.I. uses NASA and other space samples, it is appropriate to share this lovely item as a PDF nasa_graphics_manual_nhb_1430-2_jan_1976

A new release recorded with Andrea Bellucci of ‘Red Sector A’ is now available from Space Race Records This dark stripped-out techno album was recorded between 2014 and 2015 and arranged and mixed at Andrea’s studio by him in 2015. I must point out that while I am credited with additional programming on the CD sleeve, Andrea did most of the work. I provided some atmospheres and samples but the concept and overall sound of the whole set of recordings is Andrea’s and he should be commended for a fine job!
**UPDATE** Copies can now also be purchased direct from me via Discogs
