Louis de Mieulle & Matt Garstka: Outside the Square EP Released


Excited to announce the release the second and final part of one of the most beautiful, exciting and musically challenging collaborations I’ve ever been part of, Outside the Square by my dear friends Louis de Mieulle and Matt Garstka (of Animals as Leaders).

If you’re looking for fresh sounds to twist your mind into a new kind of knot, this one’s for you…

OUTSIDE THE SQUARE is the second part of the Mieulle/Garstka collaboration. The twin of DUAL (2017).
Concept EP about the inner conflicts of a cyborg with artistic tendencies.
Retrofuturistic synth prog experiment.
Crypto-classical math fusion.
