Brannon And Chippewa by Mystified [Aug. 15th, 2013|07:31 am]

Many layers of urban field recordings processed or not and layered. This release is a kind of homage to my old place in South Saint Louis, where I lived for 12 years.

Mystified- Fractal Techno [treetrunk 277] [Jul. 29th, 2013|09:18 pm]

Over 10 years ago, Thomas Park of mystified (then AutoCad), was featured in "Spin" Magazine for 2 fractal music stations he created on Live 365.com. One of these stations used as a basic premise that techno music could be created using natural data and mathematical tables. In this release, Mystified revisits the mathematical premise, featuring 3 tracks made using math tables, where mathematical formulae dictate the progressions (with minimal tweaking).

Roy Mattson with Mystified- Pluto and Charon [treetrunk 274] [Jul. 4th, 2013|11:13 am]

"These works were spurred by a drone created by Thomas Park. . . In its inception, Pluto and Charon were started in a playful, fun demeanor; almost a challenge with a friendly manner. They quickly turned into two different sounding projects. One a feeling of wonder and light, the other a feeling of mystery and confrontation with the afterlife."-- Roy Mattson, 2013

Emergence Now Available [Jun. 11th, 2013|07:04 pm]

Shane Morris & Mystified are back with Emergence, the stunning second installment to their primordial three-part “Inspired Evolution” soundscape project. This natural sequel to Epoch, their lush first release, continues the artist’s bold effort to create a sonic environment that evokes prehistoric places and atmospheres, this time focused on the age when mammals arose and began to flourish on planet Earth. Mystified’s Thomas Park explains, “Emergence takes Epoch further. Now more direct predecessors to Man are emerging on the planet; early mammals surviving in diverse primal ecosystems. Each track has a title and theme that corresponds to a different ancient location or environment.” The sound of Emergence is vital yet primal; ambient atmospheric yet powerfully evocative. Broad, sweeping acoustic and electronic tones are punctuated with treated percussive sounds such as wooden sticks, shakers and gongs. There are shadows of its predecessor, Epoch, with trombone notes and drones, which are supported by a variety of acoustic winds and other organic instrument drones. However, Emergence reflects the evolutionary turn from giant reptiles to mammals by adding some new sounds to the mix. Shane Morris elaborates, “Epoch used all acoustic sounds to create its ancient soundscape, but for this next chapter we relied a little more heavily on electronics, including digital synthesizers to reflect the shifting evolution.” With Emergence, Shane Morris & Mystified once again create tremendously immersive soundworlds that are shrouded in mystery and filled with life. Each track an opening into the distant past, Emergence presents a vigorous and powerful sonic portrayal of prehistoric Earth.

"Fantastic Journey" Out On DataObscura [Mar. 16th, 2013|05:31 am]

Fantastic Journey is an homage to writers such as Jules Verne, H. G. Wells, and other pioneers from the early age of science fantasy. Composed and performed using various samples, synthesisers, and field recordings by Anthony Paul Kerby (TCR) and Thomas Park (Mystified). It could perhaps be called exploratory electro-ambient music.

Mystified - Ghosts That Dance (waag_rel018) [Mar. 9th, 2013|06:55 pm]

". . .it is this latter piece - "Network" - which kicked off this four-track EP. It became the starting point for the music on "Ghosts That Dance (waag_rel018)". I was so taken with "Network" that I asked Park if he had any other tracks like it up his sleeve … and he promptly obliged with a further three vibrant, upbeat, slices of dance-y electronica … which I just adore. These tracks really came together nicely and it felt appropriate to release them as an EP … this included rereleasing "Network" … which I think really sets the EP off."--Thomas Mathie, 2013
