on vocal collages) of
Dark Rye Bread (2004),
Palm Shaper (2004),
Rippling Whispers (2004),
Receding Smokebath (2005),
Mountain of Signs (2005),

Clear (Holy Mountain, 2008),

Spencer Clark, instead, launched
Fourth World Magazine whose
The Spectacle Of Light Abductions (Pacific City Sound Visions, 2012)

Spencer Clark joined Mark McGuire of Emeralds in Inner Tube, that debuted with
Inner Tube (Pacific City, 2012), devoted to a tribute of
