Mystified is a pseudonym for Thomas Park, an ambient/electronic musician who lives in the midwestern USA. He’s been prolific under the Mystified name as well as the Mister Vapor project. This CDR release emphasizes deep, slow-moving textures. Primal Mystification includes subtle and restrained percussive elements but is definitely geared toward the listener who loves deep, thick drone work.
Mystified himself says of this recording:
“Primal Mystification emerged from drone sounds, similar to the way we humans emerged from the primordial ooze. Oscillating ambient bell washes were created using field recordings and mystical effect processes, and then simple rhythmic and melodic phrases evolved from the primal material. Sometimes there is a change or development in the rhythmic material, and always there are changes in the drones, behind, as they shift and flow. Primal Mystification is a musical union of form and formlessness.”
