Note, please, due to some rather mysterious technical difficulties (and lack of my time to solve this) to create new website of AMT, I decided momentary to freeze this website as temporal static archives and meanwhile to use several links where you can follow easily news about AMT/KWI activities and releases: fb-artificial memory trace and fb-slavek kwi

various soundworks you can listen here: soundcloud.com/artificialmemorytrace (shorter works and samples) and http://www.archive.org/details/tentacles-of-perception (many free downloads, collection of AMT oddities and other projects) or also here: http://artificialmemorytrace.bandcamp.com/music where you can purchase majority of releases not only as CDs(CDrs), but also as downloads (either as lossless or high defintion MP3s).

2015:

AVAILABLE: CD of AMT SYNKRONIKA (Tentacles Of Perception / Noise Below), CD ORGANFISH (and/OAR, although already sold completely there, I have still some CDs here), double CD David Michael/Slavek Kwi MMABOLELA (Gruenrekorder), ANOURAN LOVE SONGS - tripple album on usb flash card (Gruenrekorder / Tentacles Of Perception - now sold out) and CD in slim DVD case ATTRACTED BY LIGHT (Semperflorens, Russia) and more ...
