Hypnagogia is the experience of the transitional state from wakefulness to sleep: the hypnagogic state of consciousness, during the onset of sleep. It is our intent with this 15-speaker, multi-channel piece to create a calming audio environment that invokes this transitory state of consciousness. In the ever-increasing hustle and bustle of modern life, it seems exceedingly easy to get caught up in a plethora of distractions. This piece is an anthesisis to the digital world, that we hope allows you to take a moment of repose to bathe in a cascade of ever-flowing analogue sounds.


Artist Biography

“SH-2000” is a synthesizer duo formed by Calgary, Canada musicians Barnaby Bennett & Patrick Whitten. Both play Roland SH-2000 synthesizers that were made in 1972, hence the name, and incorporate natural/environmental sounds into their performances. “SH-2000” has performed at a number of Alberta music festivals including Noise Daze in Calgary, Endless Bummer in Edmonton and Sled Island 2015 in Calgary as a part of Miles Cooper Seaton’s (member of Akron/Family) two-hour group drone ensemble which was curated by Wreck City. “SH-2000” has also performed on bills supporting acclaimed international ambient/synthesizer musicians such as M. Geddes Gengras (USA), Piotr Kurek (Poland), Sarah Davachi (Canada) and Borys (Canada). “SH-2000” has released three albums that have received press write ups from outlets such as Ore Media (Japan), Tiny Mix Tapes (USA) and Weird Canada.
