-Harsh sound collage/synth manipulation-
"Radio therapy live" - emotionally driven electronics with sonic healing potential-
-instrumental project of producer/multiinstrumentalist/
vocalist Xylen Roberts. Mysterious, sometimes eerie, sometimes euphoric, usually strangely tuned experimental compositions that defy easy categorization. Extraterrestrial mountain jams cross paths with pulsating techno beats. Meditative sitars and flutes drift through space while the industrial belch of floating star barges rattle on. And so on. Inspired in equal parts by the urban noise of Pittsburgh and other cities, the arcane mountains and forests of home state West Virginia, and lots of movies. Lots and lots of movies. Unlike the music made under the Xylen Roberts moniker, which is predominantly song based with lyrics and vocals, Mythshifter is almost entirely instrumental. On the occassion that vocals are utilized, they are done so in a freeform and usually wordless way. A couple albums worth of new material has been amassed between 2015 and 2016, so expect some new releases soon, including one on Aud Art Records later this year.

Echo Lightwave Unspeakable:
Originally from the 13th dimension, E.L.U. makes and breaks musical instruments into odd machines of noise and organized chaos. "Sounds like nuclear waste being poured into my ears"-that one guy ,
"Its like being in a haunted house on LSD"-that guy whos in that one project with so and so,
"Melted my face once, not sure how I'm even speaking right now"-lady from that one magazine,
"It sounds like the mechanized voices of unknown hordes of robots, all merging to form a technological symphony of praise to their omniscient creator-lord, who listens but is only pleasured when he turns up the dials, manipulating their neon souls in a continuous series of zen-like electro-tortures."-Carl Sagon
Welling is the solo project of Patrick Peltier. Based heavily on blissful drones, and bittersweet melodies that melt into new (sometimes dark) landscapes seamlessly. Different instruments are used through out the creation of a song, from guitar and synth, along with home made instruments and objects affixed with contact mics. No two sets are the same. Skeletons of songs are laid out, but the path that the song takes is often dictated by the surroundings and the mood of the room.
Patrick also plays guitar in Daniken (Toledo based Free Psych Doom Jazz band)and runs
The School of High Art (Experimental label)
