The Psychogeographical Commission
The Psychogeographical Commission was formed at the start of 2008 to explore the many interfaces between the built environment and the people who inhabit it through dérive, magick and sonic experimentation.
After a great deal of time wandering the back streets of London and other large cities looking for the spirits which now dwell within them, we came to the conclusion that the psychological make-up of cities is now at odds with the populations inherent rural based mythology. People aren't evolving to cope with cities fast enough to keep up with the constantly shifting cityscape.
To start approaching a remedy for this we set about creating music which blurs the line between the real and imagined landscapes in order to allow individuals to revaluate their own mythologies and provide new ideas to bring them closer to harmony with their urban surroundings.
Somatic Mother Cell
Kaleidoscoping forest sounds from both day and night to disorientate the viewer, ‘Somatic Mother Cell‘ meditates on the heart of nature as a biological cauldron forming structures of great complexity to allow human psychology to project and mirror it's own nature.
The Psychogeographical Commission's latest release is a free to download album called 'Urban Psychetecture'. It contains a selection of tracks off their first two albums as well as a few previously unreleased covers, including this cover of Coil's 'Lost Rivers of London'
