ysbryd | cyborg | spoken word | field recordings | techno | iaith | The MthR Trilogy is an epic sci-fi adventure of interwoven stories told from a panoply of coalescing and conflicting standpoints. It explores notions of shifting power, loyalty, language, and love as humans & cyborgs navigate personal and professional relationships in a singular slice of time. The live events consist of spoken word, looped vocals, glitched field recordings, excerpts from the audiobooks, & occasional improvisation with select musicians.
