bicameral mind live!

"Bicameral Mind is Bryce Eiman and Shaun Sandor. We formed in 2007 in North Carolina. Bryce brings much experience to this project as his career in tape treatments, electro-acoustics, ambient, and noise music spans over 20 years in a wide variety of projects. I have been performing ambient and electro pieces since 2006 as Promute, using field recordings, homemade junk, homemade gadgets, and simple signal processors. We appropriately borrowed from Jaynes the idea of the left-brain and right-brain working together to form a single output."
