Brainnectar

(Schimpfluch Associates - SHA02) 2xCD $20.00

Eb.er's most developed program to date, combining psychodynamic environments built from specific nature sounds and extreme acoustics, often including ecstatic elements on instruments of shamanic origin. Binaural beats as well as isochronic tones stimulate a direct neural reaction to this unique and unheard audio art. The title of this 128-minute work derives from tantric techniques that raisie psycho-physical energy, or inner fire, from the perineum up to the top of the brain, from where it drips (as nectar). This consciousness-expanding heating and dripping during creation and/or reception of Brainnectar is given priority over any musical aesthetics. The grand lady of japanese extreme music -- screamvocalist Junko Hiroshige of Hijokaidan -- participates on several tracks.

Wellenfeld

(Fragment Factory - FRAG31) CD $17.25

Sound transformed from data transmitted via wireless electroencephalograph headsets worn by the performers, received by sound engineers and processed before emerging through eight speakers surrounding the audience. Performing live without prior tests or rehearsals, each member of the quartet develops and gains control over his own brainwave patterns by listening to the results of his mental activity and changing electric impulses of the brain, thereby sculpting the sound through their minds alone. Edition of 300
