Blank Mind celebrates its tenth release with the first full EP from SMX, a collaboration between Sam Purcell and Max O'Brien. From the glacial ambience of Hinterland, to the nocturnal convulsions of Uakari, these improvised tracks were recorded in East London from 2015-18.
"The live sessions allowed us to concentrate on simple forms and subtle developments. This project was started with no preconceived ideas about the end product, but we gravitated towards a sound that works both in a club or home environment. The EP serves as an honest and organic journal of sorts documenting the last few years."
Available commercially for the first time since its initial 1991 release, Spiegel’s fantastic “intelligent instrument” album testifies to the power of an artist who pushed the boundaries of electronic music to unexplored territory. Bandcamp Album of the Day Jan 11, 2019
