Daniel Havey Gives me a feeling similar to its source inspiration, with moments of great tension, followed by either a meditative melancholy or sheer joy Favorite track: the covenant.

Michael Mull Nice darker vibe, a unified collection of sounds on here. Lots of really bit-crunchy, analog-y sounds, a good album for headphones to get some nice panning stuff.

special edition released: 6/8/2013.
all music composed and produced by z-1. all sounds created using z-1's medusa synthesizer.

by the way, bandcamp streams this music at mp3 128, which is a highly compressed mp3. this means you are hearing a very poor representation of the music. unfortunately, this is out of my control. so, please download and listen.


released July 14, 2012

special thanks go to my brother for sharing in the brutally nerdy experience that inspired this little ep and - of course - martijn for teaching me everything i know about dsp and synthesis.
