Peck to perform at the Gatherings


This four track, 20+ minute slab of depressive audio poetics will finally rear it's head by months end. Muted in a Perfect Black continues to show the exploration in sound and composition. As the title indicates, this EP is dark, and painfully depressive. It is MAW for Christ's sake, what else would you expect?

Eyes Cast Down Reviews A Life Incandescent

"Tennessee space musicians Mark Mahoney and Michael Peck team up for their fourth duo album, A Life Incandescent (Waiting World Records 009), a feast of classic analog sounds with a strong science-fiction, exploratory vibe. The music was recorded live (at the Gathering and on Star’s End) in 2008, with both musicians working synths & laptops, and released in June 2010.
Two of the album’s standout features are clear very early on: energy and concision. Each piece crackles with energy (both organic & electronic). Buzzing leads, filter sweeps, roaring basses, spiraling spacelines, ghostly atmospheres, insect-like nicks and ticks, and more, drive us through a galaxy rich in wonders. There’s no floaty “new age” indulgence here; this is serious space music, meticulously crafted with clear intent."
