Second World of Ghosts

by Amphibian Children

"S.W.o.G" is a schizoid document of psychedelic cognition and the convoluted innerspace of the psyche. Grimy acoustic pluckings, ritualistic drumming, clipped cut and paste beats, geometric algorithms, tapeloop melodies that warble and hiss like misinterpreted data from ancient technologies... You are the psychonaut traversing the spectrum in utero...

ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
Second World of Ghosts is the newest project from Seattle based producer/remix artist Stefan Francisco Mendez (Amphibian Children)
Drawing similar virtues to found sound experimentalists like Zoviet France, Middle eastern beat icon Muzlimgauze, and post-psychedelic hip hop producers Odd Nosdam, and Boards of Canada.

Many of the songs feature unconventional time signatures, low fidelity beats, east asian scales and a "freeflow" structure in lieu of the verse/chorus standard.
"S.W.o.G" explores the lines between insanity and psychotoxic hallucinations. Playing out like a foggy venture into unfamiliar cultures that may or may not exist.
Imagine being lost in a strange rainforest under the influence of entheogens, or the faint memory of singing Karaoke in a dark, smokey bar with an intoxicated ladyboy somewhere in bankok.
"S.W.o.G" is a schizoid document of psychedelic cognition and the convoluted innerspace of the psyche. Grimy acoustic pluckings, ritualistic drumming, clipped cut and paste beats, geometric algorithms, tapeloop melodies that warble and hiss like misinterpreted data from ancient technologies... You are the psychonaut traversing the spectrum in utero...

The songs are organic and acoustic sounding in nature although many of the sounds originate in synthesis. Often times difficult to decipher whether you are listening to a synthesizer or some sort of plucked instrument from a lost tribe in Papua New Guinea. The beats and rhythms are split, distorted, and arranged manually, no laptops allowed.
Sample sources include old tapes, dictaphones, childrens toys, lo fidelity sound toys, garbage cans, cat toys, leaves and sticks, homemade drums, tree stumps, flea market flutes, found sounds and acoustic field recordings.

You may find a friend in Amphibian Children. You may experience waking hallucinations and visits from unsung forest deities

Second World Impressions
This potent agent scrapes and winds its way through vestigial arteries into an arcane wilderness of perpetual transduction. Syncopated outcroppings blear in a mantle of ephemeral harmonics, while a forgotten stratum of dead languages threatens to take form. On course to the Fata Morgana, we expect to find an alien terminal just beyond, and the origins of an elusive communique.
