"Benthos" is the second album by Memory Geist, the collaborative project of Steve Law (of Zen Paradox, Starseed Transmission & Black Cab) and Bakis Sirros (of Parallel Worlds & Interconnected). Their first album "Funereal Cavern" was released in 2007 by the well respected Italian experimental label Musica Maxima Magnetica.
The creation of "Benthos" has been a long process initiated in mid-2007 when Law visited Sirros in his home town of Athens, Greece and the duo recorded some initial material together comprising a variety of soundscapes, sequences, analogue rhythms & organic atmospheres. On his return to Melbourne in Australia, Law sculpted this...

Memory Geist, the project of Steve Law (of Zen Paradox, Starseed Transmission and Black Cab) and Bakis Sirros (of Parallel Worlds and Interconnected) was formed back in 2006, when Steve and Bakis met via an internet forum. Since then, the duo has released two full length albums on the well respected labels Musica Maxima Magnetica and DiN.
Steve Law has been producing electronic music in Australia since the early 1980's. During that time he has gained a reputation as one of Australia's foremost electronic artists, creating and performing music in almost every sub-genre that has been spawned over the past couple of decades.
After exploring many areas of electronic experimentation with the groups Guild of Fire, Foil and various solo projects, Steve formed the techno project Zen Paradox in 1992. The debut album "Eternal Brainwave" was a huge success. Steve went on to release further material under the Zen Paradox banner during the nineties, backed up with extensive and successful overseas tours. He was named best live electronic act at the 2000 Australian Live Music Awards.
In the meantime, Steve Law continued to explore other areas of cutting edge music, and was awarded the inaugral ABC classic FM computer music award in 1996 for his electro-acoustic composition "Urbania". He has composed music for film, dance and various multi-media works, and has contributed to the Fringe, Next Wave, Experimenta, Electrofringe, Liquid Architecture, Articulating Space, Make it Up Club and Melbourne International Animation festivals.
Bakis Sirros uses huge Analogue Modulars and Analogue Step Sequencers of the past and present. As Parallel Worlds, (the main project of Bakis Sirros, with John Sirros), he has released 7 full length albums so far, has collaborated with various well respected musicians worldwide (like Alio Die and Ian Boddy among many others) and has played live in various important venues. Sirros also has formed an IDM music project (Interconnected) with Ingo Zobel (of Dron).
In parallel, Bakis Sirros is the moderator of the ‘Doepfer A100 modular users group’, helping the progress of the tools for experimental electronic music in the 21st century.
Bakis Sirros has also worked as a sound designer for the well-known UK analogue modulars synthesizer company Analogue Systems. He has also taught synthesizer programming at a tertiary institution and has been an instructor at a workshop on analogue modular synthesis at the Synch Festival 2008.
