I hope this is not premature, but it is true and somewhat public now that mystified will be releasing a cdr on HSS very soon (as early as 12/2009).

I hope people will give the cdr a chance-- I found myself actually listening to it here in the studio a lot, which is not very common for me, as it is an easy listen and has lots of open space.

It will be called "Primal Mystification".

Essentially the music combines textured and tuned drone backgrounds with rhythms and sparse melodic touches. The first piece has a little of a "Roach"-ian feel, if I dare to say. The others are less simple to define, but I think people will like them.

Anyway, my project has been around for about 8 years, and not without controversy. Some say I am too prolific, some that I have made too many free releases.

It has always been my philosophy to release the very best on cdr or vinyl, and this I believe is one of those times.

Any questions or comments?

Hi all!

Though some samples will be available on the "Primal Mystification" page (as is usually the case with Hypnos), Mike has granted me the permission to post a special preview mp3. This mp3 is about 2 and a half minutes long-- it contains excerpts from tracks one and three of "Primal Mystification", so you can get an idea of the kind of music featured.

http://www.mystifiedmusic.com/Tracks_One_And_Three_Preview.mp3

I hope you enjoy the preview.

Again, longer previews will soon be available.

Thanks!

"Primal Mystification", a full-length release by mystified, is now available at Hypnos Records, from the Hypnos Secret Sounds sub-label. Free samples, descriptions, and an order link are all here:

http://www.hypnos.com/releases-myst-pm.php

"Primal Mystification" emerged from drone sounds, similar to the way we humans emerged from the primordial ooze. Oscillating ambient bell washes were created using field recordings and mystical effect processes, and then simple rhythmic and melodic phrases evolved from the primal material. Sometimes there is a change or development in the rhythmic material, and always there are changes in the drones, behind, as they shift and flow. "Primal Mystification" is a musical union of form and formlessness.

Just a quick note-- the number of future mystified releases, at least releases in the immediate future, is quickly dwindling. There is a collaborative 3" with Nocturnal Emissions due out in early 2010, and a small cassette release in March. There are one or two Mister Vapor releases due out. But my work as a musician is becoming more focussed, so please don't expect to see a ton of material coming out shortly.

I am glad to have had the opportunity to evolve musically, working with a variety of labels. I am not saying "Primal Mystification" will be my last release, but, I will be stepping back quite a bit.

I intend to continue to experiment and grow musically, just to release less material.

Just a few words to the curious and to those who may have followed my work over the last few years.
