"formication" by menteur, 2014

featuring:
corey bax - spiritual guidance, guitar, vocals
sam reeves - artistic direction, ambient percussives and vocals
ian kanar - artistic assistance, ambient percussives and vocals
carter fourqurean - tape samples, guitar, bass, drone guitar, drone bass, vocals, analog synth delay, drum, organ, assorted sound

with special guest: charlie smith on 'pet' and 'fox pet'

'formication' was recorded live in one take around a binaural head. thus, the entire album utilizes this "3D sound" experience. this differs greatly from most standard recordings, operating on a totally different field of hearing. to hear the difference, listen with your headphones.

special thanks to chase dubois for his counsel

frank head - binaural recording enabler

mixed live by carter fourqurean and frank head

slightly mastered (to preserve binaural qualities) by carter fourqurean

as with anything, the talented mark robinson and jesse moorefield deserve the upmost thanks.

thank you, we love you.
