Ψ☮Ⱥ is the first full-length album created by Scott Harwood under the Ψ☮ alias. The album is distributed on the Shedpop label.

Production

Ψ☮Ⱥ was recorded over the course of several nights during June 2016, and was released on YouTube on the 27 of the same month.

Styling

Owing to the number of works featuring a more developed sound, Harwood adopted the Ψ☮ alias for his more avant-garde works to distinguish them from the rest.

The album is distinguished by the heavy use of digital tape loops and primitive synthesizer sounds. The album makes heavy use of drums, though only the first track features a drum machine.

Samples

The album is defined by (often heavily-modified) samples.
