Compact Disc (CD) + Digital Album
Assembled by hand, one copy at a time, in the White Pillar Workshop. A white 5" recordable disc, printed and duplicated via an Imation D20, held securely inside a black cardboard jacket with text labels on the front and back. Contains the full 2-track/59-minute PMFM album, in contrast to the digital extract available here.
NOTE: USPS has increased international postage considerably, meaning a 1.5 ounce package (a single CD from our catalog) costs $10.50 to send overseas. This is unfortunate and immensely frustrating for all of us, so we'd like to encourage you to consider multiple-item orders in order to offset the larger postage cost, if you're able to do it, and as always we're willing to work with you on postage as much as we possibly can, where Bandcamp's itemized postage (and not a more accurate weight-based system) is concerned. All international orders will also ship with bonus Bandcamp download codes, chosen by us, to hopefully provide a more measured quantity of music for your financial support.

Dave Burraston's newest entry in his expansive NYZ catalog is PMFM, a mind-melting exploration of FM synthesis as only he could facilitate it. Using the unimaginably deep EssenceFM synthesizer, which boasts a behemoth 300-voice polyphony, PMFM weaves into and out of spaces that feel fully elemental. Humming overtone-rich drones shiver and break apart as spasms of textural electricities disintegrate their surroundings. Strange resonance pervades a constantly shifting stereo field that brings to mind visions of parallel timelines overlapping in thin wavering halos. PMFM is as much a monumental accomplishment in the world of FM synthesis as it is a sonic black hole that pulses ever-present on the bleak horizon. A welcome disconnection from this reality, or any other.
NOTE: After some confusion from listeners, we'd like to make clear the fact that all NYZ/Noyzelab catalog releases at Psoma are available ONLY as abridged digital versions for name-your-price/free download, and in their full unabridged editions as physical CD-Rs. There is not an unabridged digital version of anything from NYZ at Psoma, and the physical editions do not ship with unabridged digital versions either (that is, if you do not count the digital music present on the compact discs). For listeners only interested in unabridged digital versions, we encourage you to visit noyzelab.bandcamp.com to purchase those directly from NYZ, or even better, subscribe to his Bandcamp output and just get everything.
