Songs That The Stones Taught Us - Release Notes:
For this album Mister Vapor used only the prepared guitar sounds of Kecap Tuyul, that were mostly recorded in 2011-2012, and also old unpublished material (featuring Kecap Siveli on trumpet), recorded live on tape in 1995 (used in the 1st track).
While Kecap Tuyul didn't reconize anything of his original sounds after the heavy electronic treatments of Mister Vapor, he found that these new tracks were 'ambient songs' that sound like the distant but haunting music he hears in his his head sometimes - without being able to catch or play it". -- Kecap Tuyul, 2012
Mister Vapor Info:
Thomas Park has been involved with music for his entire life. He was trained in classical and jazz music as a teenager, and played the trombone and piano. His listening habits changed in the late 1980's, and Thomas became interested in electronic music. After several years of writing techno as the band AutoCad, Thomas was fortunate enough to collaborate with Robin Storey of Rapoon. This project helped Thomas to evolve into the ambient / drone band Mystified. Mystified has found considerable success, both through online and physical releases, and is known for being proficient, creative and prolific.
The music of Mystified is mainly of an atmospheric nature. Sometimes for Thomas less is more, making his music ideal for listening while working, sleeping or doing other things. The music of Mystified especially explores texture, consistency, and a type of variety that could be called subtle. This is not the utopian ambient of the typical soundscape artist. It is serious music for serious people.
Mystified music has found many purposes, including scores for films, online and terrestrial radio shows, festivals of aesthetic, political, and other varieties, informational cd-roms, spots on many scores of compilations, and quite a few independent releases.
Mister Vapor, a newer incarnation of Thomas Park, focuses especially on the hazier, foggier sides of ambient music.
