Lives and Times of Nyquist Hex

by Mere Mortals

Side A 24:10
Side B 22:20


The songs on this album are assembled into two "sides", much the same as if this was released on vinyl. We put them together with subtle overlaps to give the experience of a continuous listen, which means the album can be downloaded in two files, one for each side and each featuring five tracks.

Side A:
1. Carpathia
2. Ari
3. One Tribe
4. Afro Bala
5. Luv u so

Side B:
1. Next Plankton Bloom
2. Impossible Dream
3. Redpond
4. Tara
5. Sytharhya

So who is Nyquist Hex?
An imaginary being that invented the sampling frequency and made MIDI possible by turning a note into hex digi code. Gave me the power to assemble, rework, process, construct, destroy and rearrange African, Indian, Tibetan, Romanian folklore and sounds into a disparate yet homogeneous collection of semi-instrumental electronic pop songs, served with a hint of faraway exotic travels.
