The best kept secret in music


"Times 10 - Your magazine of Choice"

Review of Into the Abyss-

I have listened to this CD several times and every time I listen to it I hear something new. it appeals to the senses in different ways along with the particular mood at the time. Definitely not your mainstream music as it takes one much higher without all the formula that we get to listen to on the radio. Moonfyre adds her sexy and wise voice to the song Surrender that calms the nerves with all the music and jazzy guitar sounds. there is no real category for this music as it rises above to a sensuous sounding CD. Each song has it's own flavor and that makes it an investment that you can enjoy for a very long time. Mykel does most of the music with other supporting musicians and his talents are obvious from the first time you listen. - Dennis Cambly

"CKUA radio - Night Music"

The cover of Pocket Universe's Into the Abyss is dark, with a very gothy look to it. Do not be fooled by its indie look. This is a finely crafted production, a stunning first outing by this Edmonton duo. The music is strongly ambient, with enough variation to keep you guessing. The instrumental tracks which make up the majority in no way prepare you for Surrender, the longest track, and centrepiece of the disc. Moonfyre quietly intones her poetry against Mykel's soaring instrumentation in a sensual journey that makes you wish you were hearing it in a dark room, with company. A love song for the whole body. Surrender is worth the price of the disc...but listen to it all. - Tony Dillon-Davis

"Speak Sebastian (CJSW FM 90.9)"

Into The Abyss, a new CD by the duo known as Pocket Universe, and produced through their Edmonton production company Fyrewind Productions, is an eclectic and often atmospheric work utilizing Mykal Janisch's musical and electronic talent along with Moonfyre's haunting vocals on some tracks. The CD begins with the track Ghengis, a lengthy piece that sets the mood and invokes mental images of Tartar hordes thundering across the steppes of Central Asia on their sweep into Eastern Europe. This track is followed by progressively more complex tracks that take the listener deeper into their journey.

Somewhat like a symphony, the tracks of Into The Abyss build and develop, sweeping the listener through a musical landscape of emotion and imagery. The landscape can be used to facilitate meditation, a romantic evening over wine and candles, or the intense interactions between players in a "scene".

Feeling a bit camera shy


The performance art/music duo Pocket Universe comprised of Edmonton artist’s Lord Mykel and His Moonfyre have been creating together since 1999. Sharing a musical theatre art background, they ventured into the world of music together writing, recording and performing unique folk/rock tunes. The response was good but it wasn't *quite* clicking for them. In 2002 they were challenged to create some "Scene Music". The acceptance of that challenge was the genesis of "Into the Abyss" and Pocket Universe’s vision and talent coalesced. Together they have woven the magic that created the sensual aural experience found on their first CD “Into the Abyss” and that magic expands with their Second CD “Primal”

Seductive and enchanting music is their forte and they have chosen to present it in the form of music created for sensually charged encounters. Music meant to be a soundscape to be used by the listener to create the perfect environment for corporeal escapades.

Mykel, a composer and multi-instrumentalist writes the bed tracks of the songs. Moonfyre, a lyricist explores those tracks exposing the words and melodies within. Together they collaborate as producers in their own studio and bring to life their unique style of scene music. That style includes instrumentals, spoken word over music and vocal melodies; all featured in both their CD's. They produce their albums under the label of their independent production company Fyrewind Productions Inc.
