The Brain maintains his Vat in a small village on the outskirts of Dundee. Ex Bass player to Hairshirt (Roddy Woomble of Idlewilds first venture) and 2 of Dundee’s most prolific Rock/Pop bands; Cerulean Blue and Boomhauer, The Brain has decided to pursue his guilty pleasure delving into the realms of Electronica and Ambient techno. Utilizing technology readily available on the internet and mixing acoustic guitar and bass, the album incorporates The Brains various influences which are easy to hear.
"Scotland’s Brain In A Vat is an electronic mystery to many, but his music reveals the complex electronic nature of keyboard sounds, percussion beats, and atmospheric washes from futuristic realms. Schrӧdinger’s Cat is a work of fifteen tracks that set to traverse the instrumental electronic world by storm. The metallic embellishments, ambulating beats, and somewhat melodic compositions are unique and enthralling. "

" Brain in a Vat’s debut release, Schrödinger’s Cat is an interesting album that is able to incorporate some very eclectic components, creating an overall heighted effect for listeners new to the whole Electronica and Ambient Techno genre."
