Amygdala

Producer Profile |  | May 20, 2010 | Posted by Basilisk

Amygdala

The amygdalae are a set of almond-shaped nuclei deep in the temporal lobes of the brain. Included in the limbic system, their primary function is processing memory and emotional responses. The music of Amygdala (Andreas Riemer Christensen) is thus “mind music” crafted to entrance and enthrall the listener.

Drawing on inspirational sources as disparate as physiological psychology, science, and cyberpunk, it is no surprise the Amygdala “sound” differs with every track. Influenced most prominently by early Eat Static, Transwave, System 7, and Koxbox, the music of Amygdala can be described as old school, progressive, psychedelic and techy, but every ride is an individual experience. Amygdala’s music is designed for inner exploration, reaching into an intergalactic science fictional future, and solid down-to-earth partying.

Amygdala’s music appears on a variety of releases including Mainspring Motion from PAR-2 Productions, Soundscapes 1 from Crotus Records, and the Psychedelic Sparks compilation from Inpsyde Media. The Sprawl EP from Ektoplazm marks his solo debut.

    Excellent music, guys. I liked this CD a lot. Great vibe.

  • Corban Brook says:

    Great album, spans through some different reaches of sound but maintains cohesion. Downloaded this a while ago but didn’t have a chance to listen to it all the way through until last night. Had it playing in the background during some intense Nexuiz DM (a video game like quake). The spooky ominous presence created by Amygdala – Oxylerator II mingled with the futuristic alien architecture perfectly and gave and the adrenaline rush really gave me the killer edge over my opponents. It wasnt long before the album had looped a 2nd time. I really got lost in it.

  • Psyentifica says:

    Great release with some top notch productions. Great vibes and melodies that flowed very smoothly but kept the energy high.

    stand out tracks:

    01 – Amygdala – Oxylerator II
    03 – ProSect – Tribalogic (Amygdala Remix)

  • dark man says:

    what music software u use??????????????

  • Jikkenteki says:

    Dark man:
    Which artist? I know the track I worked on, together with the late Symphonics tracks were all made on Cubase SX 3. Can’t speak for the other artists, but I recall there being quite a range of sequencers used on this one.

  • Amygdala says:

    Hi there – thanks for the nice comments (better late than never, eh?).

    I use Logic as sequencer. I think the two tracks on this one was done in version 4.7, so it could just as well be made on a pocket calculator… No, seriously, Logic is a terrific sequencer, even in the old days. Apart from that, Absynth is a splendid softsynth, anything Native Instruments does, really – and then I do my own plugs from time to time…

    Thanks again, cheers!

  • Ozric says:

    Since the recent release of Amygdala’s amazing album, I’ve been snooping around Ektoplazm looking for some of his tracks, and I stumbled upon this VA. ProSect – Tribalogic (Amygdala Remix) is FUCKING brilliant, I can’t stop listening to it! Congrats and thanks!!

  • Killer Album,after much time i hear some good music
