The Ministry of Inside Things, includes Chuck van Zyl on synths and Art Cohen on guitar. Their music has been inspired by the Berlin-School of cosmic spacemusic and influenced by everything from sci-fi themes to nuclear fission to chillout room abstractions.

MoIT enjoys the live environment and uses it to further explore and invent their musical stylings. The ultimate goal is to create in the mind of the listener a sense of movement through space along the arc of a dynamic contour. Owing much to improvisation, each original performance traverses many sonic terrains.

Cohen and van Zyl have had the opportunity to play live at a variety of interesting venues over the past several years. While their music touches on many of the hallmarks of Berlin-School Spacemusic (cyclical sequencer patterns beneath soaring lead melodies contrasted by passages of deep synth tones and glissando guitar), they bring their own influences and innovation to the process. The result is a sound that is uniquely individual.

Ambient Elsewhere:
Ambient Elsewhere (2008) feels dark and isolated when compared to the two earlier releases by The Ministry of Inside Things. While Everlasting Moment explored the edges, dynamics and tension of space and atmosphere, and Contact Point embraced the more unified themes of cosmic, biospheric and macrocosmic interaction, Ambient Elsewhere moves through a strange new territory in-between and outside of traditional Spacemusic. Drawn from a range of chilling themes, this album sonifies wintertime, desolate landscapes and the soul’s midnight. Moving through the timbral badlands of the empty quarter, Ambient Elsewhere offers up a courageous intimacy. Always bringing their own influences and innovation to the music process, MoIT produces a sound that is uniquely individual and personal.

The Ministry of Inside Things released this double CD at their performance at The Gatherings Concert Series on 20 September 2008. The music from Ambient Elsewhere has been drawn from several tour performances and features definitive live versions of classic MoIT pieces like “Love Attack” and “Naylor’s Run”. The album contains two one hour long suites of space music and easily flows through a variety of themes, energy levels and styles.

Contact Point:
Contact Point (2006) is the second live release by MoIT, and feels warm and earthly compared to their debut double CD set Everlasting Moment. While their earlier album explored the edges, dynamics and tension of space and atmosphere, Contact Point presents the more unified themes of cosmic, biospheric and macrocosmic interaction. Through the use of environmental field recordings, drifting melodies and soft sonic textures set against submerged drones, billowing sequencer patterns and breezy guitar and synth lead lines, Contact Point depicts the mystery and beauty of telluric ideals. While their music touches on many of the hallmarks of Berlin-School Spacemusic, MoIT brings their own influences and innovation to the process. The result is a sound that is uniquely individual. Music from Contact Point has been drawn from several live performances and features definitive concert versions of classic MoIT pieces such as “Fortescue”, “Serenity Cove” and “Nightscene”. The disc plays for about one hour, easily flowing through a variety of themes, moods and styles of Spacemusic.

Everlasting Moment:
Everlasting Moment (2003) is the first conventionally replicated CD release from MoIT. Music from this double disc set has been drawn from several year 2002 performances and features definitive live versions of classic MoIT pieces like “Neutron Flux”, “Function Four” and “VM-75”. Each disc plays for about one hour, easily flowing through a variety of themes, moods and styles of Spacemusic.
