Album Notes
Atomic City is the Internet's first electronic music production company, having been formed well over a decade ago. Their early experiments in collaborative emusic, given the nickname "Team Metlay" after founder Mike Metlay, have been released on a series of CDs that are now available through CD Baby.

One of the Team's quieter members, Beltway-based electronic experimentalist Joe McMahon, has been prodded into the limelight with Shatterday, his first solo CD. Released to critical acclaim in 1995, this electronic outing combines traditional jazz and classical themes with the wilder elements of traditional electroacoustic music to create a virtual diary of a dreamer's ideas.

There's uptempo and downtempo music, jazz and pop themes, uncompromising noise, all linked together by a startlingly clear sensibility that fuses the collection into a coherent whole. The audio examples are only a small selection of the wide range of styles and sounds to be heard here.

All you gearheads out there, be prepared to be freaked out-- this album was performed live to 2-track on only one synthesizer, no matter what your ears tell you.

Meet Joe McMahon and take a spin through his world. And having done so, check out the other Atomic City releases now available on CD Baby.
