polinos Massive album of post-Tangerine Dream electronic soundscapes. Some tends towards dreamy ambient, others are more busily electronic with an at times almost discordant edge. Amazingly few dull moments.

bread Humble opinion: Not only is the best thing MGG has ever done, it's also probably one of the greatest ambient albums ever. I tend to think twice about pushing play on an album of 2+ hour length but not for this one. Sounds especially fantastic on a good sound system to fill the room(s).

A Strangely Isolated Place What a collection of works! Definitely my favorite from MGG out of his relentless output. Favorite track: Mirror.

Scubadevils An incredibly engaging, beautifully constructed work set out across 2 discs with some tracks unfolding over 20+ minutes. Stunning album that just keeps revealing more on each listen.

about

To summarise the work of M.Geddes Gengras is no easy feat. A tireless artist, whose output sprawls across experimental dub, ambient and low key techno, his wide ranging discography reveals a curiosity that serves as a primary driver for creation.

Light Pipe is arguably Gengras’ most ambitious recording project to date. His 10th solo recording is an epic undertaking, spanning over two and a half hours. Across the two CD set, Gengras charts out evocative landscapes of texture and harmony. Working with very simple elements, he creates a tidal like sound space, where sound layers flow seamlessly, rising and falling with an ever-changing sense of motion.

These pieces were written across several years responding the site specific performance situations. These include a durational performance in Los Angeles at The Getty Center’s Irwin Garden, a special performance alongside the banks of the LA river and performances at the El Rey & Regent Theatres, Each disc in this edition focuses specifically on either interior and exterior spaces; the indoor and the outdoor, reflecting the specific conditions of how sound operates in these types of situations.

Light Pipe is a long-form work within which multiple states of listening are possible and moreover encouraged. It’s music that is ideal for deep immersion; for sleep, for flying and for any creative states within which a sense of expansion is needed.
