Thee Electronic Meditation Program was birthed in the winter of 2000, originally conceived to perform improvisational and experimental works, referred to as atmospheric "Programs". It's earliest incarnations conducted programs at local art galleries and obscure venues providing haunting ambiance created with magnetic tape loops and understated analogue synthesizer support, contributing evocative accompaniment of theatre productions (I.E. "Charlie and the Chocolate Factory" [Harbour Play House, 2004]; "A Christmas Carol" [Harbour Play House 2005])and scoring various experimental and avant-garde films.

Collaborative effort between Russian sound artist Vitaly Maklakov and Electronic Meditation Program. Released by Ostraga Label in 2018.
