Ex Nihilo now available on La Société Expéditionnaire

Here's a writeup about Martin's recording studio getting sonically "mapped",
and the process where "impulse responses" were taken to gather data on the acoustic properties.
Now a plugin can simulate the ambience of his main recording room.

Another example of music and social activism working hand-in-hand:
please enjoy the following video made in support of the Occupy Wall Street movement.
The song is written by Kyp Malone (TV on the Radio) and members of Notekiller and Liturgy.
Look out for cameos by Martin (2:23) and the UC at Davis "pepper-sprayed" students (2:01)
