about

An arresting collection of microtonal electronica and avant-rock by Los Angeles-based composer/instrumentalist/producer Brendan Byrnes. Each of the eight tracks explores a different tuning system and is based on imaginary locations or features of Micropangaea, a fictional continent that will form on earth in the distant future. With the help of drummers
Michael Day and Mike Horick, engineer Brian Saia, and a microtonal guitar ensemble, Byrnes pulls the listener through instantly compelling song structures while pushing sonic boundaries. An animated website designed by Kerstin Hovland offers a new alternative to liner notes, providing additional visual content and tuning information. Visit the site at micropangaea.com.

"There’s an immediate wow factor embedded within these eight pieces of sonic delight as featured in the tantalizing world of Brendan Byrnes‘ Micropangaea—a kaleidoscope of surreal instrumentation which roots itself in the subconscious and elevates the senses." -Igloo Magazine
