Big Daddy Mugglestone/Prabu Estarius-
Tempest Mantra
VALIS Records 013 (2003)

Recorded in 1998, this 20 minute long piece showcases a time when BDM (drums) and Prabu (electric guitar) were recording their daily improv sessions. Tempest Mantra results from two 22.5 minute sets interwoven going both in normal and reversed directions. The mood is lackadaisical and melancholic, with lots of swelling cymbals and guitar melodies that chase eachother in and out of interest.

Malaclypse Da Elda/Prabu Estarius/Big Daddy Mugglestone
Gods Collage (2002)
gods collage cover

A live installation piece involving 3 portable CD players moving around a mic suspended in an occilating fan. Utilizing many different sources, from Malaclypse Da Elda's field recordings in Africa to the sounds of narwhals, this 48 minute long ambient exploration is more tribute to the creator of sound than a musical composition.
