Hypnagogia is a word that describes the experience of transitioning from wakefulness into deep sleep. Mental phenomena that occur during this "threshold consciousness phase" include lucid thought, lucid dreaming, hallucinations, and sleep paralysis. A601-2's Shibuya Hypnagogia is a 61-minute generative-music composition designed to induce the shift from full awareness into a state of deep delta. It's an alien transmission from the threshold of perception - a tool for introducing shifting gradients of consciousness. Trans-dimensional voices drift in-and-out over an ocean of gentle sonic-cascades, sonic lifeforms hover weightlessly in your listening space with sounds of ghosts in the wires. Nocturnal field recordings from Tokyo (Shibuya/Shinjuku) combined with prototype generative-music composition software to form this otherworldly audio landscape. Mastering curves optimized for low-level playback. Tokyo recordings captured via Sound Devices 702 and Core Sound High End Binaural Microphones (DPA 4060 capsules). Mixed in real-time to a Tandberg TD20A recorder.
