Minimalist experimental electroacoustic pop, produced and composed by Melissa Dyne and Khaela Maricich. For the production of Brand New Abyss Melissa Dyne developed a portable rig of modular and analog synthesizers routed through elements of studio processing gear; using signal flow the system enables two performers to produce and perform multilayered electronic compositions live without requiring the addition of pre-recorded tracks or additional instrumentalists. The album was written and produced both in their New York City apartment as well as in a number of time-share condominiums throughout the Northeastern seaboard. Engineered and mixed by Melissa Dyne using Protools on a MacBook Pro. SONGS: Peaceful Easy Feeling (by The Eagles), Dark Cold Magic, So There, Greatest Love Of All (after Whitney Houston), The Woman You Want Her To Be, Get Up, Think About Me, Summer
