Album Notes
Intelligent Dark Electronica with a touch of Krautrock and Experimental Ambient

Starting from a raw melting pot of free improvisations, strange ideas and twisted logic, Kyron carefully sculpts and deconstructs nights of unbridled musical passion into finely detailed jewels of sonic thought and inmaterial architecture. The result is an uninterrupted flow of contrasting moods, mathematical structures, explosive joy and deep pools of ecstasy, all interconnected in the infinite tree of life, which makes, preserves and destroys all forms, ready for a new one to be born. The Endless Generation of Forms captured momentarily on a silver disc.


I come from a country with a long tradition of human warmth and a painful and bloody history: El Salvador. I came to the United States in the early '80s, at the start of the civil war there, and I have lived here in San Francisco since then. I have travelled back to El Salvador many times since then, so I consider myself a kind of synthesis of both cultures. Much like the music that I create my mind is equal parts magic and science, logic and madness!

I studied creative writing in college and wrote many short stories. I slowly became dissatisfied with the way that creative writing was taught in college and I changed my major to music, which I studied in SFSU. I graduated in 1993 with a specialty in Music Composition and Electronic Music. The main skill I feel that I learned in school was the careful application of attention to each and every detail of a musical composition. I learned that this attention could be applied to any style of music.

Several of my pieces in a "classical" style were performed by the Symphonic Orchestra of El Salvador and by other smaller chamber groups. In 1994, the University of Santa Clara gave me a comission to create the music for a Multimedia Piece (involving dance and theatre) based on the massacre of El Mozote. This piece was finally performed in 1996.

But even before then, around 1992, I started to realize that something was missing from my musical work. I started to experiment with various shamanic and magical traditions, slowly finding my way through this mine field to arrive at the start of what is known as the Path. I began to realize that music could be used as a practical method of travelling to other dimensions or planes, to gently (and sometimes not so gently) push the human machine into awakening and to create spaces of invocation.

As I explored more deeply in these regions, I became involved with other people that were also interested in these ancient questions. During several years I devoted myself almost completely to this work. I participated in and directed many shamanic and musical experiments. Some of these have been recorded and may soon be available. Others were as ephemeral as truly beautiful moments have to be.

These days I give all my energies to the project that we now know as "Black Note Music" - through which I hope to truly develop and explore at least some of the infinite panorama of possibilities that I see before me. Together with my current friends, and others that I still haven't met, I hope that we can really find and offer those places where ancient shamanic practices and invocations meet the age of synthesizers and electronica.

"I started playing music more than 15 years ago and I really feel that I have barely started to penetrate into the marvelous mystery that is held within those structured vibrations. I have created pop music, classical music, minimalist music, electronic, blues,experimental, jazz, industrial... almost all genres. I don't feel that the particular genre that is used to classify music should have any importance. What truly matters is what kind of vibration is awakened in those that listen.
So my most recent work is dedicated to creating music that will affect the listeners in subtle but profound ways. Music operates at a pre-linguistic level. The parts of the brain which listen to notes, to rhythms, are not intrinsically connected or dependant on language. This makes these areas of the brain more innocent, more open to the greatest questions that we can make, they are more ready and willing to embark on journeys with no return. I wish that my music may be the starting point and a faithful companion in such journeys."

In the realm of electronica, Morpho Genex is about as good as it gets.
Kyron - "Morpho Genex"
(Black Note Music 2005, BNM 044, CD)

From Aural Innovations #32 (November 2005)

Kyron is J.C. Mendizabal, and Morpho Genex is his excellent 13-track exhibition of pure electronic sound sculpture. Aside from the more transparent influences (Aphex Twin and Scanner, for example), Kyron's apparent modus operandi is the deconstruction of any and all available sound sources and their reassimilation into monolithic blocks of solid electrosynthetic architecture. And in the realm of electronica, Morpho Genex is about as good as it gets. Mendizabal's sound bytes, from the heights of the telescope to the depths of the microscope, are finely realized and meticulously constructed, and together create a seamless voyage through the outer reaches of inner space and beyond. Utilizing an arsenal of samplers, loops and other sound generators, along with the occasional guitar and a Pandora's Box of disembodied voices, Mendizabal explores the boundless possibilities of cyberspace like an acid-ripped engineer. Though at times a bit wearing on the ears, pieces like "Lab Rat," "Slalom" and "Morse Code" command deep listening with their layers of electronic texture immersed in silicon chip seas of reverb and echo. Acolytes of the early 70s Kraut space cadet invasion (Kraftwerk, Neu, Kluster, et al) will shit their transistors when they hear the well-tempered transmutations of "Xenon Arc" and "Shameless Complex." And for pure noise at the aural threshold of endurance, "Ed the Fish" is a piece of malevolently crafted high tech sadism. The cool down mock jazz chill of "Preposterous" is an effective and disquieting coda that closes out Morpho Genex with an icy stare across the neon skyline of some artificially generated cyber city of the future. Kyron is definitely for all those who relish being trapped forever in the nanocircuitry of god's AI.
