Open System are Michael Martin and Matt Hillier.
The two decided to combine forces in 2003 and work on an ethno-ambient-idm project, reflecting their love of those genres. They were joined by Jake Stephenson in 2003 before his untimely death in 2005.
Their album 'Sanyasin' is a culmination of 7 years of work. It features edits from ambient jam sessions the 3 recorded in Jake's studio, and also many field recordings Michael made on a trip to India in 2007. Beautiful, shimmering, cinematic soundscapes - lovingly crafted and ideal for late night horizontal headphone listening.
