Lars Gotrich Megan Mitchell in an operatic noise trance. Deep, rumbling, glitching music that emerges from the earth and demands a concert hall. www.vikingschoice.org/archive/vikings-choice-guide-to-bandcamp-friday-aug-2021/ Favorite track: Conduit.

nobody An exquisite blend of mesmerizing languid voices, haunting tones, percussion coming from a yet-to-be contacted civilization, and abrasive noises that spice the misty atmosphere. I would play these tracks while I would be waiting for an imminently announced end of the world Favorite track: Fluvial.

A Dormant Vigor explores themes of destruction, emergence, and growth through my deep respect and reverence for geological, and especially, volcanic processes.

Instrumentation includes voice, granular synthesis, eurorack/modular synthesis and field recordings.

A Dormant Vigor was originally a commission completed for the Wayward in Limbo series that has been re-mastered by M. Geddes Gengras and split into discrete tracks.
