is the second albumby Memory Geist
, the collaborative project of Steve Law
(of ZenParadox, Starseed Transmission & Black Cab) and Bakis Sirros
(ofParallel Worlds & Interconnected). Their first album "FunerealCavern" was released in 2007 by the well respected Italian experimentallabel Musica Maxima Magnetica.
The creation of "Benthos"
has been a long process initiated in mid-2007 when Law visited Sirros in his home town of Athens, Greece and the duo recorded some initial material together comprising a variety of soundscapes,sequences, analogue rhythms & organic atmospheres. On his return to Melbourne in Australia, Law sculpted this raw material into a set of 6tracks which were augmented by further soundscapes, rhythms and arrangement ideas sent across to him by Sirros. The gestation of"Benthos" took 4 years in total and has resulted in the birth of a complex and fascinating ambient electronica album. The pieces range from dark, industrial rhythmic tracks to cosmic style slabs of ambience and showcase the duos use of modular analogue synths along side computer software manipulation.
