After releasing "Waltz of the Nanobots" and "Spectra" there is more to come from wyngWMYN...
Music inspired by science... and science inspired by music!
wyngWMYN started off her solo computer/electronic music career with the surreal EP Music To Go Sane Into (2014). It was a soundscape to illustrate the beauty and the horror of the inner workings of the mind--at times on the molecular level! "The Grind" starts you off with a harsh episode of being dragged, yanked and pulled through the chaotic monotony of daily life. Once you get adjusted to the drudgery, you are ready to enter the code of what makes your day, night, and your very being, DNA. "Serotonin Transporter Sequence" used all kinds of state-of-the-art sound science to convert the very gene sequence of its namesake, a gene that is important to human behavior and mental health, into a dynamic track.
We continue the bio-psychological journey to address the beloved subject of addiction in the brain. "VTA-diction" is cheekily named to represent the Ventral Tegmental Area (VTA), diction, and addiction. The VTA is an important reward center in the brain that assists with behavior consistent with both healthy habits and drug and other addictions. The song is based on a sequence of sounds that wyngWMYN liked to hear, which were manipulated to slow down over time, the way time can slow down before attaining something much sought-after, especially an addictive substance. The song concludes by restarting the cycle as supposedly the desire has been met, all the while everything seems to speed up again.
"A-MY-G-D-ALA" (as in, 'Ah, my God, Allah!') is named after the amygdala, a piece of sweet, sweet neuroanatomy that is thought to regulate emotions and their expression. This song is mainly intending to portray--and even cause--fear. Proceed with caution.
wyngWMYN's debut was as the Emcee and contributor for an electronic music trio TRYPTYK. In the glorious Charlottesville, Virginia in the spring and summer of 2014, they put together an album, Callulose Cells You Those, a self-produced 11-song-long lucid dream. The sound is eclectic, unique, and many say, tryppy.
