Fritz Marial I've been interested in the Lyra-8 for a bit now and, thanks to Mylar Melodies and divkid I got turned onto this album, which is performed solely on the Lyra. First rate drone space.

dermo Intense, deep, hypnotic industrial drone, I did a double take when I read it was all made on the Lyra 8 alone!! The range of emotion and atmosphere Ebcidic coaxes from the instrument, while still maintaining the album as a cohesive whole 'sound' is an impressive feat, and makes for a fantastic sonic journey. The tape sounds fantastic too!

This nine track industrial ambient drone album develops the dark atmospheres and soundscapes while also introducing a harder more abrasive side with the incorporation of elements of noise. The album explores the broad possibilities allowed by the extreme limitation forced by composing & performing solely on a single instrument viz. the Soma Laboratory Lyra-8 organismic synthesiser.

Accompanying this album is a full-length 'Charming Hades' video available here:

All nine pieces were recorded as single live takes, using the Lyra-8 and live FX processing namely the Tiptop Audio Z-DSP running the Halls of Valhalla reverb card, with minimal post-production editing.
