"TIMEGHOST
collapses boundaries between performance art/electronic music and technology/biology to pursue esoteric interests. The sole effort of Adam Morosky, an active contributor to Providence Rhode Island’s Noise periphery for the past 10 years, TIMEGHOST focuses to reach audiences on a visceral level through guided meditation, mutated song forms, physical endurance, and synthesizer explorations that sound more like spoken language than replicated musical instruments. This year, reputable Providence label Load Records is releasing “Cellular”, the first TIMEGHOST LP, a narrative that encapsulates information technology, systems of power, human biology, and global ecology as a gestating organism unaware of its own body and implications. The themes are served through a medium of pulsating rhythms, haunting melodies, and meditative passages of synthetic sound and site-specific recordings. In concert, the album is performed with sound-reactive light arrays and prosthetic sensors pierced through his skin. Adam Morosky has collaborated with members of This Heat, The Residents, Forcefield, and is a former member of Lazy Magnet. He has performed at The Museum of Art at Rhode Island School of Design and shared festival lineups with Tony Conrad, Herman Nitsch, Lightning Bolt, and Container. TIMEGHOST has toured Europe and the United States.

ORA ISO
a sullen two piece of off-axis harmonies and industrial percussion thrown back and forth between guitar, Wurlitzer organ, vocals and samples. Pieces begin in abstraction, encounter semblances of melody, then disseminate into fragments. Disassociated and lonely the sounds project their missed connection with the world at large. It all comes together as a glorious noise and "Bathcat", the band's first album, captures the essence of their nature.
The group formed with a shared affinity for challenging pieces. Kathleen Malay, born in Indonesia and a recent transplant to New York via Australia, is a classically trained pianist who found her voice through working with Jason Kudo, a guitarist best known for his work in the band Modra. Bathcat was recorded with the deft influence of Lary Seven, a fixture on the New York experimental scene since the 70's, who has worked with such artists as Swans, Tony Conrad, Tom Verlaine, and Foetus.
