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.

The Many Hours at Salisbury House

July 17, 2016

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.

Neural Interval

October 27, 2014

As I sit here in the bunker near Heathrow Airport, tin foil hat on to protect me from David Icke’s reptiles and remote control ‘planes, I receive news from my Polish brothers at Zoharum that the new Nagamatzu double CD ‘Neural Interval’ has hit the streets. You can hear some of the tracks and buy the CD’s or digital versions here. It’s limited to 300 copies, so get moving if you’re into this stuff!Nagamatzu 'Neural Interval'

Also in the pipeline, my other brothers in Leipzig, those of the Loki Foundation, plan to re-release my S.E.T.I. album ‘The Geometry of Night’. This will not be a simple re-issue. Rather, it will be accompanied by a new ambient sister album entitled ‘Companion’.

As alluded to in my last missive, Andrea Bellucci has been patiently waiting while our bunker had its rebuild and I am now back on track working on our joint album.

Finally, Astro Myrmex will be presenting his data logs in the next few months. I’ll keep any interested parties informed via this site as, although my Facebook band pages still exist, I no longer use the site myself. The Lagowski and S.E.T.I. pages are run by my Polish and German brothers mentioned above, while the Nagamatzu page is run by Stephen Jarvis of Nagamatzu/VII Sins/Motorcade Records.
