Born out of both creative empathy and chance, Organ Eye were formed in the wake of a live concert of David Maranha (Osso Exotico) and Minit (Jasmine Guffond & Torben Tilly), which took place at the ZDB Gallery in Lisbon, Portugal at the end of February 2005. With the addition of Patricia Machás (also a member of Osso Exotico), the quartet that now forms Organ Eye was completed and in March and December of 2006, they recorded their eponymous debut album.
The two raga-like tracks that comprise this first album equally reflect the qualities of the two contributing sides – Minit’s loop-driven fragmented melancholic electronics and the hypnotic and ritualistic electro-acoustic drone studies of Maranha and Machás. Such a union forms an intense patchwork of eternal sound vibration in which fuzzed-out organ riffs keep realigning themselves and ululating digital scree unravels in a series of convulsive but cyclic turns, while delicate violin descensions and processed harmonium drones draw out a pulsating soundspace.

Despite its monolithic nature there is a lot of detail, and repeated listening will reveal a moody, unfixed world of miniature vibrations, harmonics and noise. Amidst an overall somber, foreboding atmosphere are sublime moments of ecstasy and serenity in which also a sense of directionless-ness allows space to breath.
Organ Eye is a turn towards a live improvised form that neither party has explored on record before. Referencing not only the overdriven noise-drone workout of VU’s ‘Sister Ray’ but also the seminal teachings of the Young/Conrad/Riley axis, Organ Eye expresses a unanimous interest in the transportative / transcendental power of drone music and its various improvised forms - deconstructing the spiritual trip so as to be able to repossess it and make it their own. Organ Eye - a volatile rocket of intense drone-mutation, fleeting sonic ghosts and suspended feedback on the brink of implosion. 44 minutes of vitriolic electric-acoustic drone. The outward and the inward eye.
