Bee Mask

Chris Madak, the electronic composer who goes by the name of Bee Mask, has, until recently, mostly released his eerie, atmospheric compositions on cassette and CDR. Elegy for Beach Friday, on Editions Mego's Spectrum Spools imprint, collects this hard-to-find material in CD format, as a companion piece to the same label's reissue, earlier this year, of Canzioni dal Laboratorio del Silenzio Cosmico. Tiny Mix Tapes included this latter record on their top 50 for 2011, calling it "a dazzling display of synthesizers and haunting sound collage."
