Merrin Karras

Merrin Karras is the ambient pseudonym of Irish electronic musician Brendan Gregoriy, perhaps more widely known for producing techno and house under the name Chymera. His work as Merrin Karras is warm and melodic, with Berlin-school pulsations and hints of suspense.

The alias first surfaced in 2014 on John Beltran’s Music for Machines compilation released by Delsin. Since 2016 he has found a home on L.A. label A Strangely Isolated Place, where he has released three albums of epic, synth-heavy electronics

Producing electronic music since 2002, Brendan Gregoriy’s music has been released in esteemed labels such as Ovum, Cocoon, Delsin, NRK and Dirt Crew. His melodic, synth-laden style, with his live hardware/Ableton performances under the Chymera alias, has occupied infamous venues such as Panorama Bar, Womb, Output, Rex Club and more over the last few years.

After featuring on John Beltran’s 2015 compilation, Music for Machines (Delsin), 2016 sees Chymera turn to new inspiration to further unveil his ambient guise, Merrin Karras. Born in the cold winters of Berlin, the sound of Merrin Karras lends itself to Brendan’s experience performing and producing techno music, and the inspirational sounds of Klaus Schulze, Biosphere and Steve Moore. Merrin Karras’ impeccable production skills juxtapose addictive melodies, pensive atmospheres and euphoric beat-less chords; focusing on the warm, powerful and appreciated sound of the synthesizer.
