Hello! Off to a good start. Sounds like late 90s Kranky records. I'd join this cult.

Of course Epperson is from Portland OR. It just fits.

This is what the 5th Dimension sounds like slowed down like 800%

Oh man, I love Epperson’s work. First encountered it via the Insight Timer app (where you can hear a lot of it for free). Please please PLEASE don’t be telling me he’s actually a convicted sex offender or any of the usual things that land musicians on MMC.

Hmmm, the Monroe Institute helps you use your whole brain. Maybe I should check that out. Knowing myself the way that I do, I'm definitely not living up to my full potential.

Cult idea: Make your music fun like this and it's more likely you'll grow your membership.
  Tue. 11/26/19 6:10pm ron-ji:

@dale, if you’ve made it this far not-hating, you’re not likely to start hating. I would not call this piece (which I haven’t heard before) the best introduction to what he does, and this is only one aspect of his aesthetic. I have never gotten a cult version be from him AT ALL. (How’s that for an ad campaign?)
Avatar Swag For Life Member 🎃 Tue. 11/26/19 6:10pm blee:

sign me up for this cult, at least it's mellow.

Good Evening, Micah and everyone!
not familiar with Epperson at all, but finding this piece quite enjoyable
@ ron-ji -- i agree! hoping Epperson is not some sort of sociopath-narcissistic-pedophile-etc. type too!

My friend just told me his dreams are much more lucid when he turns on the beats. Check.

I have a memory of attending a YMCA camp outside of Grand Rapids in the early 80s. One evening the "entertainment" was this Christian hippie leftover with an acoustic guitar with 2 pregnant women singing with him. This show regularly conjures up that memory.

@brainiac Which makes me think of Stryper, a better rehearsed cult band.

That sounds like a Sears drum.

So Sugmad is going to resurrect the dead trees? A forest of tree zombies? That sounds terrifying.

"He teaches the sacred name of God, HU, which lifts one spiritually into the Light and Sound of God, the ECK."-- What the hu-eck?!
  Tue. 11/26/19 6:37pm ron-ji:

This Epperson Incident —which *may* be the first time I have ever heard an artist whose work I know fairly well and enjoy unironically on IT—really demonstrates how Context is Everything. Micah understandably and accurately presented Epp as inspired by Hemi-Synch (& he *has* released a few of his many recordings on their label)—but I had completely forgotten that about him by now. He could just as easily get airplay on any number of other WMFU shows, but introduced to their listeners as influenced by folks like David Toop and the more experimental side of Eno’s career, which is equally accurate.

Binaural sound is a real thing-- the brain will combine slightly different frequencies from each ear and generate a beat frequency. However, it doesn't appear to do much beyond that so...

  Tue. 11/26/19 6:44pm ron-ji:

I had a college friend who later got into ECK. My cult-hackles went off, but he didn’t really strike me as having gone off the deep end—and I am totally down(in theory) with conceiving of god as Light and Sound. Having heard so many of the group’s god-awful recordings on MMC, though, I gotta say I have few questions about exactly what kind of Sound they have in mind. Maybe the Light part is more fun.

There's a problem when the echo drenched spoken psychobabble interlude is the part that works best.
