about

"Shimmers like the Northern Lights, maybe composed of stars... a muted spectrum of melting shadows, the louder you play it the more affecting it becomes, as though some invisible sonic force is pushing the music at you." -Mick Mercer


"Imagine, if you will, the experience of hearing music from the other side of existence; songs being reflected back through the ether to your ears as whispers of their prior incarnations. This may sound like an outlandish idea, but put here to practice it is every bit as other-worldly a listening experience as it sounds. On his album My Ghosts and Yours, Rob Byrd takes this leap and explores the vast potential of his concept by masterfully applying various signal processing gear to his electric guitar, with resultant landscapes of sound which remind you of places you have never been, whisper to you of lives long past on, and echo of our lasting impressions upon this world- and those worlds beyond the grave. Entirely improvised. Byrd says of the process "Memories of imaginary places surfaced while recording the songs..." and it is an apt way of describing the effect of the album on the listener. If you relax and listen openly, the washes of sound and the shroud of ambiance may lift just enough to conjure your own forgotten imaginings. I recommend "Song of the Ocean Wraith", "Lyceum", and "Memorial Figures".
