Biography

A slow rumble sneaks across the dreamy haze of a winter’s moor… like an aural spectre; never quite visible, but definitely there. The haze burns off as a crisp sun rises through the hills scorching a path through the landscape as though its energy were focused through a magnifying glass. Atom Eye is the glass that pierces through you, darkly.

Welcome to the world of Elsie Martins.

A musician who takes raw elements of atonal field recordings and morphs them into compositions and rhythms - both dark and light, intense and subtle, whole and transient - an art form she developed in her guise as the driving force in the previous musical vehicle, Phantom. Broadening those horizons and introducing new elements such as analogue tape loops, drone and world percussion, Atom Eye takes you on a journey: it’s the soundtrack to your dreams… or your nightmares.

Featuring guest appearances from award-winning percussionist Pete Lockett (part I & II) - (Björk, David Holmes, Royal Philharmonic Orchestra, Lee Scratch Perry, Primal Scream), percussionist Fabio Barbato (part III) - (Ethna Morte) and Mute Artist, Composer and Producer Simon Fisher Turner (part III) - whose works include soundtracks for Derek Jarman’s Caravaggio, The Last of England and The Garden as well as the David Lynch-produced Nadja;
