Dane Mitchell's "Post Hoc"

Composing, synth, sound design

"Dane Mitchell’s Post hoc conjures up the ghosts of our past, calling up millions of vanished, extinct, absent and obsolete things. From submerged atolls to failed utopias, extinct languages to tax havens, long lists of lost, withdrawn and vanished entities and phenomena are announced and transmitted, accumulating as a forecast of the past."
