Notes.

Amoeba Miasma Void is the second release from Gatherer taking a much darker turn from his debut EP Ten Crowns Sect on Moon Town Tapes. Herein there’s more emphasis on thrumming low-end drone and distortion, combined with skittering insect-like clicks and blips and spaced-out synth, arpeggios all presented atop a cold and unnerving hiss and crackle.


Biography.

Gatherer is the solo project of Morgan McKellar, one-half of Canberra improv-noise duo, Cold House, and formerly of Sydney band Underlapper and his now defunct solo project Morning Stalker.
He manipulates (mostly) found-sounds from audio libraries, online video, and field recordings to create improvised sample-driven, ambient/drone pieces intended for headphone use.
