M.Mercer: “Viscosity” (2014)
More drones exploring minimalism by way of microtonal bending, stereo position and panning, and more rhythmic synthesis and noise.
Free download: Turbulence EP
I released this EP in January 2011 to little fanfare… these three tracks were part of the sessions that resulted in my Pianissimo Possibile album, which was primarily introspective piano cut-ups and headphones listening. The new tracks for Turbulence — bookending the EP — are much more raw and visceral, and they seemed to complement one another but not the album. I added a rather old unreleased ambient interlude called “Loom” (which also made it onto the Vicious short film score) in the middle to round it out; I’ve had this track on tape (yes, tape!) for years and had never found a proper home for it until here.
My good friend Tarquin has put together a ridiculously good 80 artists compilation record! He’s kindly put @bastions @myprojectghost and @sleepbeggar tracks on it too, here’s the link - https://thedeathofamodernist.bandcamp.com/album/cult-songs-vol-2
