"Epoch", the collaborative release between Shane Morris and Mystified, is due out in mid-2012 through Spotted Peccary / Lotuspike Records. Much progress has been made these last weeks as cover art has been chosen, layout made, and tracks successfully (and beautifully) mastered. We are a step away from having the cds created at the plant.
Shane and Thomas hope people will enjoy "Epoch"-- it is a full-length cd that uses Thomas' trombone drones and lots of other sounds (all acoustic) contributed by Shane to connote the dinosaurs. "Epoch" also is part one of a trilogy by Morris and Mystified called "Inspired Evolution". Part 2 will focus on the emergence of mammals, while Part 3 will involve the appearance of humans.
"Dunes Of Infinity" is a longform Mister Vapor track created using home-recorded trombone sounds, and a variety of other sounds, to connote long periods of time. Similar in principle to the "Long Now" project, the piece uses a combination of simple, interlocking parts to create a sense that the present is part of a much longer continuum.
A track by mystified and by many other great artists appears on a new compilation released jointly by Thisco and Enough Records. The topic of the compilation is a Trans-Atlantic connection between Portugal and the U.S.. Tracks were made to sound as though they were recorded in the hull of a ship moving between the continents.

For this, the second chapter in the "Broadcast For The Sultan" series, Ayato presented mystified with world sound and rhythm tracks to embellish, mix and master. We hope you enjoy the result-- we feel it is somewhat reminiscent of Muslimgauze.
