Mandelbrot Zoo (2015)


Mandelbrot Zoo is the debut album from producer Conor Strachan and co-features an ensemble cast of guest musicians. The album was recorded in various locations and at Conor’s home studio in London between 2012-2015.Everything on the record was recorded from it’s source from the ominous resonance of the church organ to the musical ringing of bicycle bells. Based on four conceptual themes the album is a psychedelic journey through dreamlike stories and abstract worlds, taking lyrical inspiration from poetry, cinema, architecture, nature, dreams and the alternative perceptions that exist within these worlds.
