Motoko & Myers

Basis Key

Open Hand Real Flames

Released: 10th August 2018 | 8 track electronic ep

Motoko & Myers is a collaborative project of Daniel Letson and Wonja Fairbrother. Wonja is known as the creator of the legendary Wood Glass Metal series, and Dan has released under the name DJML for Jacktone and From Them Depths. Together they host the weekly show Herzog Hideout on Chew.tv, which is a wonderful and wide-ranging blend of music old and brand new.

Their debut album is a collection of melodic electronic experiments composed and edited over the course of the last year in a makeshift home studio in Oakland, California. An intuitive exploration of unusual tunings and irregular phrases, conjured from forgotten FM boxes, toy synthesizers, and primitive samplers. Layers of improvised loops are aggregated into liminal song-scapes: Hazy sound baths, autonomous arpeggiations, and microtonal dub.

Basis Key is an inspired mix of their two directions, a concise and nuanced record with many hidden depths.
