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.

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

S.E.T.I. ‘Final Trajectory’ CD release

December 10, 2013

S.E.T.I. ‘Final Trajectory’ CD release

S.E.T.I. Final Trajectory CD

The new album of Andrew Lagowski’s S.E.T.I. begins as a colossal sound wall, like a massive electrical transformer, out of which analogue and digital synthesizer sounds and samples emerge, condense, and crossfade into a deep ambient symphony. The recordings and textures produced over 30 years from 1983-2013 converge in ‘Final Trajectory’ to produce a collection of monolithic sounds. Invoking a sense of immensity with warm and dark atmospheric loops sounding distant and abandoned in a vast wilderness, battling against galactic winds. S.E.T.I. sets the listener down in this wilderness as an isolated observer; a witness to long intertwining drones, shattered dialogue and broken transmissions, with superior effects chains and a gentle rising dramaturgy forcing the complete album to an astonishing pure data vortex.

As the Voyager spacecraft reaches the outer edge of our Solar System it is a fitting time to imagine the exodus from Earth of the last human being on their final trajectory towards an unknown future. There has been little effort made to prepare psychologically for this one way trip and hallucinatory voices and sounds flit around the traveller, mingling with those of the craft’s entertainment, propulsion and life support systems. Life memories, encounters and events break through the cracks of rational thought like dream fragments, in bursts of barely unrecognisable data. As the craft passes through the mid point of our planetary system on its way out, the occupant thinks they hear a message being transmitted from Earth on the permanently scanning radio receiver.….

Will this be real in our lifetimes? Is the craft being built already in the knowledge that we have little time left on this planet?

If so, where to next?

S.E.T.I. ‘Station’ now on Bandcamp

November 22, 2012

After a query from a certain ‘Gaston Grimsdyke’, I decided to search out all of the tracks I created in 2001 as muzak for the ISS (International Space Station). They are now available as a digital album, to be played loud and enjoyed for the experimental beasts that they are.

Nagamatzu ‘Lift Off’ 8mm film

March 5, 2011

Here you can find a great film put together by Stephen Jarvis. Shot back in 1988 in Romford, Essex, UK. The audio was recorded on a Tascam 38-8 and mixed on a Seck 12-8-2 desk.

S.E.T.I. ‘Eleven’ album

September 11, 2005

Originally a French project called ‘Twelvomatic’ which involved 12 different artists (Scanner, S.E.T.I., Merzbow, Illusion of Safety, Asmus Tietchens, John Duncan etc). Each artist gave one minute of sounds to a sound bank/library, which we then mixed into a 60 minute album each. My album was going to be the first in the series but the originating label went down in 2003/4. Details & files here
