Alternate Modes of Underwater Conciousness
Alternate Modes Of Underwater Consciousness is the electronic experimentation of Lunarsight, and Irving Finkelstein, his imaginary Jewish friend. It is electronic music by people who don't feel like making electronic music.
Lunarsight: Programming, Keyboards, Vocals/Lyrics, Conga Drums, (Attempted) Guitar, Harmonica --- Irving Finkelstein: Butter-Churner, Triangle, Sock Puppet Choir on Track #28, Colonoscopy orchestration on Track #74, Endless Coffee Runs, Endless Trips To Bathroom Caused By The Runs He Got From The Coffee From The Endless Coffee Runs --- Sids: Re-enactments of the Civil War, which usually break down, since they all will argue over who gets to be Jerry Lynn. (It's all but useless explaining to them that Jerry Lynn is a retired wrestler, and wasn't even remotely involved with the Civil War. Brightly-coloured stuffed bunnies just don't understand concepts like this.) --- An Inanimate Carbon Rod: Responsible for most of the really good vocal parts. --- Shifty McShift: Nuclear-powered Telharmonium solo, played with his prehensile handlebar moustache.

Well Of Thoughts(2007)
Very percussive! That's the first two words that come to mind when listening to this. I'm really happy with the variety of the different songs here. (In fact, it was tough choosing a genre selection for that reason - parts of it lean towards Ambient, and a couple tracks could have easily been called Industrial or Experimental.) - It basically sounds like an electronic album from somebody who didn't feel like doing an electronic album. All the other influences are constantly trying to pull it away from electronica.
Midnight In The White Room(2008)
More vocally-oriented than the previous album. Quirky, atmospheric electronic.. Fairly unsettling soundscapes, to say the least.
Like A Dark Mirror Keeping Its Secrets(2009)
File somewhere between Electronic - Beat Driven, Electronic - Ambient, and Industrial, and then throw some unconventional vocals into the mix for good measure. The moral to the story is this: Even if you desperately seek to escape unfortunate events from your life, avoid foul-mouthed voodoo children offering to hurl you into outer space with dark magic catapults. They have an ulterior motive for trying to lob you into the nearest black hole, which are little more than the security flaws in this operating system we call an omniverse. Stephen Hawking once believed that nothing ever escapes a black hole, but now he thinks they may regurgitate their meals periodically in unexpected ways.
The Loudest Silence(2010)
Alternate Modes Of Underwater Consciousness - RPM 2010 submission. Tales of corruption, ascension, structure and dementia. ADD Electronica flowing like the New England weather - if you don't like the synthesizers, wait five seconds.
Fisher In The Sky(2011)
Fisher In The Sky is AMUC's 2011 RPM album. Overall, a good effort [albeit a brief one at only 27 minutes]. Best described as atmospheric -- the listener can expect to swim through various acoustic spaces, each creating its own distinct environment. (I couldn't find a good genre for Groundhog, since there didn't seem to be any descriptors synonymous with "sucks".)
The Kitchen Sink(2012)
Pure genre channel-surfing fun. AMUC's RPM 2012 album literally has everything but the kitchen sink on it. The tracks appear in the exact order they were created, so there is a strange flow to this that holds it together. [Sidenote: I did my best to choose genres for the tracks, but it gets a little muddled.]
Shatter The Glass With Dialed Sands(2013)
AMUC's 2013 RPM Challenge album is a mixture of quirky synthesizers, odd time signatures, and way too much fun with sampled dialogue. Themes this year include abandoned places, parallel dimensions, and the afterlife. Lyrics remain as headscratchingly confusing as ever, coming across as fragmented shards of audio dreams. (The vocalist is often improvising the words, so it may be the subconscious talking half the time.)
We had wanted to do an album with the name "Chasing Ghosts" for a while now, but earlier RPM albums had kind of gone in a different direction. This is the first album we did where the name really fit. The first eight tracks form a suite of sorts. The last five were standalone songs. There was also going to be a mime death metal song, but the mime was just too loud, and clipped heavily in the mix.
Her Low Budget Nightmare(2015)
MUC's RPM Challenge Album for 2015. It contains the following : ninja penguins, cowboy robots, shoddy attempts at disco by somebody too young to remember it, 16 bit game music, and a binary-inspired rap breakdown. Oh -- and there are some nightmare-themed tracks as well, but they are fairly low budget, since most of expenditures went into acquiring the robots mentioned above.

40 Minutes Of digitally-rendered chromesthesia. Please check all sanity at the door before listening. It will be stored in a brown paper bag and returned to you once the audio recording has completed. AMUC is not responsible for any paper bags that may be lost or stolen.
Motion Blurs & Broken Glass(2017)
Grunge-era ambient chiptunes done by the Amish during their Gothic phase. Album Dedicated To Phone Tree Survivor Number Thirteen. Sample info can be found here : http://lunarsight.com/samples-used-mbbg.txt
