Omniverse, part 2 in my Live series, to be released independently through my bandcamp page on New Year’s Day 2013.
Culled entirely from LIVE performances, Multiverse is first in the Verses Trilogy series. Recorded from 2009 to 2012 on Shane’s former net radio program, “Atmosphera” on electro-music.com radio and mixed in September of 2012.
Video series of drones performed on the Marsynth Morris Box , an instrument made for me by Damon Mar specifically simple for making drones, noises, and sound effects. The Morris Box has 2 square-wave oscillators, a low-pass filter, and a LFO. This is the first in the series.

Paiyatuma – “Arriving at Night in Ithaca” is out now at Kikapu net label. Paiyatuma is an all wind instrument project of Thomas Park and Shane Morris.

Wind instruments such as the bottle and flute play predominant roles in the composition, and no synthesizers were used, to emphasize its timeless qualities. Download for Free – Flac, Ogg, or Mp3.

A very nice review of Morris/Mystified’s “Epoch” by Sylvain Lupari is up at the Synth Sequences blog.
“We cannot remain indifferent to the musical search of Shane Morris and Mystified. A duet which lays a surprising musical painting where the soundscapes of a Jurassic world are show by the magic of sounds. It’s maybe not for all, but one has to raise our hat in front of so much artistic creativity.” – Sylvain Lupari
Thanks so much Scott!

As life has gotten busier for me, I am finding it harder to maintain a regular performance schedule for my Atmosphera series on electro-music.com. Thus I have decided that after almost 3 years of the Atmosphera performances, I will be ending the series in April with one final performance on Friday the 13th 2012. The good news is I will now have the time to cull through over 40+ hours of live music for releasing in a few large volumes. I will also still be playing periodic live sets on electro-music and stillstream, just no longer going to carry a regular schedule.
Thanks so much to everyone that has supported Atmosphera over the years.
