Rasplyn's "Scenes Through the Magic Eye"

I always enjoy finding a creation that stands apart from the usual. Carolyn O'Neill's debut release, Rasplyn's "Scenes Through the Magic Eye" is one such step into the creative ether. 

Both haunting and atmospheric this piece and the album as a whole paint very vivid and atmospheric soundscapes. The music in this lends itself to soundtracks for movies, stage, gaming and just chilling to a stream of sound that takes you on a journey across the backlot of your mind. 

I found a little info on O' Neill's project, knowing that once you hear this your curiosity will be raised and the info you seek is here at hand for your convenience:

Rasplyn's "Scenes Through the Magic Eye" is Carolyn O'Neill's debut release on the experimental music label, Mythical Records. 
Rasplyn is the solo project of Carolyn O’Neill who uses her experience with classical composition and film to create mystical and visual landscapes with her music. Carolyn is a Chicago native who grew up playing the clarinet and organ. After playing in her high school orchestra for four years she went on to receive her degree in Music Composition from Columbia College Chicago. Her music is dark, but beautiful and filled with textured layers influenced by world culture and fantasy. Her style is transforming as she experiments with adding vocal elements into the environments she creates. Her debut album "Scenes Through the Magic Eye" is due to be released on Mythical Records on November 30th, 2014.
