The Omniverse Theory postulates matter is composed of electrons and positrons and the omniverse is composed of opposite polarity universes where electrons in one polarity universe have the same polarity as positrons in the other.
Omniverse is part two of my Verses Live Trilogy series. Culled entirely from live performances, Omniverse extends the spatial journey that was started in Multiverse, which brings together elements of many genres including electronic, ambient, and world musics. Recorded from 2009 to 2012 on my former net radio program, “Atmosphera” on electro-music.com and mixed in September of 2012.
Review: A hypnotic synthesis of earthy tribal ambient and otherworldly space ambient. – Richard Almasi
A Multiverse is multiple possible universes comprising everything that exists and can exist. The Multiverse contains all possibilities and all manifestations of those possibilities. Inside the Multiverse, all things are relative; all things are subjective.
Culled entirely from live performances, Multiverse is first in the Verses Trilogy series. Recorded from 2009 to 2012 on my former net radio program, “Atmosphera” on electro-music.com radio and mixed in September of 2012.

Inspired by a particularly philosophical dream in which a nebulous figure explained that all of life’s ambitions, desires, hardships, and triumphs, are ultimately like a decaying petroglyph from an ancient time were memories and events are etched into stone and slowly fade away both physically and culturally with the erosion of time.
Etched to Fade was an improvised live performance by Shane Morris on April 8, 2011 and originally streamed on the internet at electro-music.com.
Just a two days before this performance, Douglas JP Lee, aka Lily Pond Orchestra, unexpectedly passed away. These three pieces are dedicated in memoriam to Douglas JP Lee.

Recorded live at the Kansas City Electro-Music Festival in 2010. Dan Minoza and Shane Morris just met in person a few hours before this set was played. This all improvisational set of music gelled so well that it deserved the ears of a wider audience in recorded form.

Live recorded streaming performance from 2011 on Atmosphera, former radio show of Shane Morris at electro-music.com. Originally a 2+ hour continuous set, it has been reduced to 3 separate tracks of the highlights of the original recording. Though the instruments and patches were prepared beforehand, this was an all improvised set.
The Penfield Mood Organ, for which this music was inspired, is a fictitious machine based in Philip K. Dick’s book, “Do Androids Dream of Electric Sheep”, of which the film “Blade Runner” was inspired from and based on. In the book, the mood organ functions to alter the unwanted mood of the listener to a desired mood. The device has options for the basic range of human moods and emotions at the disposal of the listener. The machine works like and is often compared to a drug, though it is all accomplished naturally through the use of sounds and tones.
“Set the Penfield Mood Organ for Aware” is Shane’s version of the possibilities of what this machine might have sounded like. It is also an album of serene relaxation and cognitive stimulation. Let the binaural beats pulse through your brain. Set the Penfield Mood Organ for Aware.
Review by Rick McLean: There’s a feeling of delicate and fragile beauty here, a real sensuality that works very effectively in inspiring an emotional response.

Review: Premonition is a long-form “dark” ambient live improvised work. It meanders in the shadows where mystic thoughts tend to linger.. It does not lurk behind you waiting for the most opportune time to spook you, but rather confronts you head-on, pushing you in the sludge, through the shadow-land where mystical realizations come to pass. – Brian Bourassa
