Whote II : Moons was recorded between 2013 and 2014 in New York City. The LP was preceeded by a video for the title track which premiered on October 31, 2013. The record was released in two formats, LP and CD with slight track variations selected for each format experience.

Whote I : Align was recorded over the course of 2010 in New York City. Layered and dense guitar movements with an minimal ambient break at the end. Whote is an acronym for "White Hour of the End" which was intended to create the feeling of a blinding and transformational experience through guitar noise.




Ancestor II : Machine began recording in 2008 in Bergen Norway during a residency at USF Verftet and finished in New York City in 2009. Machine takes a more clinical and synthesized approach, with longer-form tracks than its predecessor, Silence. The CD version comes with a second disc from an attic show at Lydgalleriet in Bergen Norway taken in the early autumn of 2008.

Ancestor : Silence was recorded in Boston, MA and released in the Summer of 2008. Mastered for CD and Vinyl by Saff Mastering in Chicago, IL. The 60+ minute record creates 12 cohesive yet subliminal portraits through a minimal approach to instrumentation. The vinyl edition was limited to 500 hand-numbered copies in gatefold jackets.




Thomas Watkiss : Ancestor is a two-part short recording intended and written for 7" format. An original demo of this recording was made shortly before leaving Stockholm for Boston and this recording represents the duality of the transatlantic re-patriation.
Of Victory and Victim was the first release of improvised 4-string bass and long-form ambient works. The full-length is a compilation of works Thomas created while a student at Konstfack University of Art and Design. Released in the summer of 2007.
