I'm very pleased to announce two new Periphery releases, the first of many to come throughout 2012.
First, we present Subtle Shift
, by Within Reason
, aka Gregory Kyryluk (usually trading under his regular moniker Alpha Wave Movement). Within Reason's gorgeous ambient/dub/techno works a nether region where post-Basic Channel defectors co-habitate with the ghosts of Tangerine Dreams past, late Mille Plateaux-era minimalisms, and the Echocord crew, but rearranges existing aural vocabularies into vivid & refreshing new shapes.

Then there's Of Microcosmic Origins
, the debut by Groupthink
. A duo comprised of Darren Bergstein (iPhemera, found objects, percussives, voice) and Edward Yuhas (guitar, electronics, loops, iPhemera), Groupthink erect vast drones of machinic elegance buttressed by windswept atmospheres, sentient noises, and the odd rhythmic pulse. Utilizing all manners of instruments analog and digital, archaic and contemporary, the duo improvise with wild abandon, yielding, thanks to their various iPhemera, ambience with teeth.

All current and future Periphery releases will be strictly limited to 50 copies, housed in a unique round, hinged tin with a transparent window displaying the CD.
Both of the above, plus earlier Periphery issues by The Electric Golem
and Richard Lainhart
, in addition to the compilation Home Patterning
, can be purchased on the Periphery Bandcamp page:www.otperiphery.com
