ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
MIKRONESIA (Michael McDermott b. 1977) is an accomplished philadelphia based musician, composer, producer, performer and DJ.

"Tissue Paper Ghosts" is a work of breathtaking ethereal ambient glitch from the remarkable young Philadelphia-based electronic artist. Mikronesia's sound has flashes of Monolake and others in the world of clicks and cuts and trance-like minimal techno, but as a professionally trained musician with a keen sense of melody and rhythm he is able to really catapult his musical vision into a very special zone of listening....

"Tissue Paper Ghosts" is a breathtakingly flowing concept album, as described by the artist himself:

"I envisioned the album as a concept album about someone dying in a car crash and then reflecting on life and interacting with the material world as a ghost. Thus, the sounds of sirens and the throbbing nature of the first track, 'slow bleeding' which is the last couple minutes of this man's life as he slips away at the scene of the accident. . . "Remember / Home" is the final long track, it is a deep meditation which, I hope death feels like. Yu still remember and cherish the things in your life, but you don't have the jumping ego based mind trying to hold on to everything in your life. It's done and in the past, but you simply KNOW you're home...."
