Nick Morfitt An amazing four part project of immersive "ambience" that regresses the listener to a state of foetal consciousness,sonic amniotic that flows out the speakers both blissed out and paranoid,these challenging compositions retain musicality while forging into new areas of sound.

BPM 1 is the first release by the British electro-acoustic group Fendahl, and the first in a four part series of albums inspired by the pioneering work of Czech psychiatrist Stanislav Grof. The series explores Grof’s cartography of the deep human psyche, in which he describes four experiential patterns which emerge at the boundary of the individual and the transpersonal, typically revolving around the physical experience of the birth process - the Basic Perinatal Matrices or BPM 1-4

It is recommended to experience this recording at moderate volume in an otherwise quiet, comfortable environment, marked by the absence of bright lights or other intrusive distractions, to encourage undisturbed and focussed listening. Individuals who have chosen to experience this work in its intended Compact Cassette format are advised to ensure that the auto-reverse function on their stereo component system is selected, to allow for uninterrupted playback of the material.

Listeners may find themselves experiencing feelings of paradisiacal tranquillity, primal union, and oceanic ecstasy, the hallmarks of the early intrauterine experience. However, some listeners may be troubled by intrusive feelings of malaise , nausea, toxic or insidious influences, paranoia or other ‘bad womb’ experiences. These, along with transpersonal manifestations such as the vivid re-experiencing of phylogenetic or ancestral memories, experience or identification with archetypal elements, entities or gods, or transcendence of space-time shouldn’t cause alarm and may indeed have intrinsic therapeutic value.
