Liquid Faith This is one of the best works on the DIN label. It's a dark glurpy mix of undulating,moist moog magic intermingled with jamming rhythm pieces, I was blown away by it. It's Memory Geist's second album. More than 5 years in the making and including guest artists from all over DIN combining into one of the most mind blowing albums you'll hear! I highly suggest this album to old and new school electronic music fanatics. You will looove this! Favorite track: Metaphore.


DiNDDL09 | 2011

"Benthos" is the second album by Memory Geist, the collaborative project of Steve Law (of Zen Paradox, Starseed Transmission & Black Cab) and Bakis Sirros (of Parallel Worlds & Interconnected). Their first album "Funereal Cavern" was released in 2007 by the well respected Italian experimental label Musica Maxima Magnetica.

The creation of "Benthos" has been a long process initiated in mid-2007 when Law visited Sirros in his home town of Athens, Greece and the duo recorded some initial material together comprising a variety of soundscapes, sequences, analogue rhythms & organic atmospheres. On his return to Melbourne in Australia, Law sculpted this raw material into a set of 6 tracks which were augmented by further soundscapes, rhythms and arrangement ideas sent across to him by Sirros. The gestation of "Benthos" took 4 years in total and has resulted in the birth of a complex and fascinating ambient electronica album. The pieces range from dark, industrial rhythmic tracks to cosmic style slabs of ambience and showcase the duos use of modular analogue synths alongside computer software manipulation.

The album is also available as a limited run (99 copies) digipak art-edition CD-R from the Hic Sunt Leones label run by ambient maestro Alio Die.
