about

This debut release is a deep listening ambient drone meditation on cyberpunk.

Headphones recommended. Skipping forbidden. Immersing allowed.

All sounds used in this album were recorded with a special coil microphone, capturing the naturally inaudible electromagnetic emissions of the mainboard and componentes of a dual CPU Supermicro rack server. The recordings were resampled, mixed and mangled with a Yamaha MT-120 multitrack cassette recorder, a Roland SP-404SX sampler and a bunch of stompboxes, most prominently a Jomox T-Resonator. None of the tracks were arranged, edited or mastered on a computer but only performed live by Last Unit.

The obvious medium for the final work is an electromagnetic one. Get the limited edition cassette!

The humming beneath the physical matter. Unified Field. The server as a neuron. Cyberspace/mind emerging from electrified matter/brain which itself is a manifestation of energy/consciousness.

"All that is visible must grow beyond itself, and extend into the realm of the invisible." (TRON)

All tracks performed and recorded at Atelier Mishmesh, Berlin Kreuzberg, January - March 2017
