Clouds Above Chaos “Cognitive Fault” is a journey into the ethereal and the esoteric, up to the interpretation of the listener. There is a loose underlying narrative to the album revolving around Terence Mckenna’s theories, specifically his description of the merging of man and machine and the approaching singularity. We had a vision Terence Mckenna’s head affixed to the body of a giant mechanical spider, The “MechKenna”. Emerging from the pit amongst the smouldering ruins of a felled civilisation. It would haunt us during our sessions. These ideas were fuelled in part by our own experiments with psychoactives and the exploration of occult and dystopian themes and our experience with the intangible. Take what you will.
This album was produced and compiled from 2006 - 2014, recorded in numerous home studios and garages. We have used a variety of recording equipment both in the studio and out in the wilderness or underground. We have played various instruments, along with hardware, controllers, smartphones, a multitude of plugins, software and spent countless hours of production to get the end result we are happy with.
Clouds appeared as a manifestation of our combined mental health and substance abuse issues. This album is meant to be a psychedelic soundscape, a dark echo of the subconscious and uttering of a distant future, a voyage into the depths of our collective psyche; listening back through it all, we’re glad it happened but definitely never want to go back. This material is intended to be listened to under the influence, quiet or loud. We hope you enjoy the trip.
