Originally inspired by a dream, Etched to Fade was composed, performed, and recorded by Shane Morris on April 8, 2011 and streamed live on the internet at Electro-Music.com. Just a few days before this performance, Shane’s friend, Douglas JP Lee, aka Lily Pond Orchestra, unexpectedly passed away. These three pieces are dedicated in memoriam to the spirit and music of Douglas JP Lee.

Mystified- Complex Silence 14 [treetrunk 147]

“Now comes a Complex Silence release that been long awaited.

One of ambient music’s and netlabelism’s most celebrated artists, Mystified, has graced the Complex Silence Series with a long-form drone.

There’s no point attempting to describe this music or do it justice in words.

The artist’s name alone tells you that your ears will be delighted.

Simply put your finger on the download button, then sit back and let yourself be immersed in a world of sound as rich and yes, as complex and abstract, as you’ve come to expect from the inimitable Mystified.”- P. Wilkerson, 2011

i AM esper and Mystified- Disintegration Ranch [treetrunk 145]

While further exploring electro-acoustic territory, the two artists i AM esper and Mystified decided to collaborate. i AM esper is known for playing humming baritone guitar drones, and Mystified, more recently, for creating ambient drone textures from trombone notes. i AM esper laid down 5 nice tracks and Mystified remixed them, re-composing and processing the sounds. The result, Treetrunk feels, is quite powerful, covering emotions from total bliss to deep despair. Somehow the use of “real” instruments has brought these feelings out. Or perhaps it was the musicians themselves. Some references might be made to My Bloody Valentine on a track or two, for those who know of their music.

Don’t miss this one!
