Artist: Martyn Stonehouse
Label: Spun Out Of Control
With a day job in sound design for video games and computer graphics, it makes perfect sense that electronic musician Martyn Stonehouse’s latest album should be about a spaceship’s strangely maternal computer system going on the fritz and conducting neurological experiments on ‘her’ human cargo.
Inspired by the short stories of Philip K. Dick and the legends of Greek Mythology, Complete Logistics And Research Automation – or CLARA for short – finds Stonehouse deploying darkly sinister synth workouts, seductive arpeggios and cinematic piano sequences to illustrate his ambitiously far-reaching musical tale of deep space shenanigans.
Presented as a limited edition of 200 cassettes on Spun Out Of Control, split between ‘Deep Space Blue’ and ‘Orion On Fire’ orange translucent tape shells, a download card is included with all retail purchases. Label catalogue number: SOS 049. Cover and inner panel artwork by Eric Adrian Lee.
