Almost a year in the making, Connecting Trains by Disturbed Earth, Shane Morris, and Kirill Platonkin is out now on Buddhist on Fire net label. From near opposite corners of the globe, U.S., Russia, and Australia, Connecting Trains is truly music from around the world and back again. Dark ambient, experimental, and soundscape lovers will want to pick this up.
There are several firsts on this album. This is my first release with Disturbed Earth or Kirill Platonkin, though I have another collaboration with Disturbed Earth coming out later this year. This album is my first release playing some electric guitar, which was processed with N.I.’s Guitar Lab. Also featured on this album is the Marsynth Morris Box, which I used on each track along with other synths and percussions. This release is also the very first Creative commons release for Disturbed Earth.

Shane Morris – Approaching Singularity
Very proud to announce a new release on a brand new netlabel, Buddhist on Fire!
Recorded Live on Stillstream.com on April Fools Day 2011 (04.01.11) on the dark ambient experimental net radio program Sadayatana.
This live set was mostly improvised using Absynth, Reaktor, and field recordings. Listeners will find a more reserved and minimal approach with sounds that could be described as dark ambient, electronic, and experimental.
Approaching Singularity is an instrumental concept album based on the hypothesis of technological singularity proposed by I.J.Good and Vernor Vinge. As the world progresses, it seems inevitable that at some point, if we do not destroy overselves, for better or for worse, this singularity will occur. This is an album inspired by these concepts and the potential outcome it proposes for the future of the human species.
