MONOGANON is the alias of John B. McKenna, a skilfully diverse multi-instrumentalist and songwriter, who hails from Carluke, Scotland, and is currently based in Malmö, Sweden. His 2013 album, F A M I L Y, was our first ever release on Lost Map - a mesmeric collage of distorted guitars, layered vocals and synthesised noise, ambling and diverting across wide sonic terrain, simultaneously paving the way for the label's kaleidoscopic identity.

Inevitably, John was our first choice for the VISITATIONS project. The moment he arrived on the island, he threw himself into the experience full pelt, producing an album’s worth of material over the course of his week-long stay. We’ve collected four pieces for this vinyl release, which combine field recordings with programmed electronic patterns, ambient soundscapes and atmospheric textures. “One by one, the sands are flowing”.

Recorded at Sweeney’s Bothy, on the Isle of Eigg, 20th - 27th July 2017.
