"More of a soundtrack to nightmares than a cozy electronic ambient piece, Cycles and Connections fire off synapses and tantalize optic nerves with acid jarring noise manipulations...'music for intellectuals' would sound confining, but it just might fit here." - SMOTHER
Product Description If you enter one hypnagogic state of bodiless illumination this year it should be Receptor Sight's new album Cycles and Connections! This album would be a good soundtrack to a neuroscience textbook / any movie made in Japan / or an isolated sequence of hallucinations which occur spontaneously while you're walking alone after midnight on 22nd St. The sound can be reminiscent of everything from Can to Sonic Youth, to early Floyd and Coil. The instrumentation is diverse, yet focused; some-what minimalist yet always interesting. Receptor sight has developed as a vehicle to push musical boundaries while dually serving as a sort-of "consciousness exploration." Synchronicity is the theme here, a coincidence of sounds that, once they are played, seem to be meaningfully related. The energy which permeates the universe will flow from your speakers.
