Isolated Gate is Ian Masters (Pale Saints) and Tim Koch (Central Processing Unit). Universe in Reverse is their first full length release together following two EPs: No Heart No Home and Hapax Legomenon both released in 2022.

A chance meeting between Australian graphic artist Cailan Burns andEnglish musician Ian Masters at the infamous Bears live house in the sonorous distended bowels of Osaka kickstarted the horrific but unstoppable chain of events that led to the gestation of Isolated Gate.

Ian and Cailan became good friends in Osaka and did some musical experiments. All the while, Cailan kept mentioning a mysterious friend who wanted to collaborate. When the request to collaborate finally came, Australian electronica musician Tim and Ian started working together like an ovum dividing and finally, after many many months of pulling time and laugh completely out of shape and to the extremes of elasticity, this debut LP was ejaculated into being.

Torrents of telepathic communication flowed as well as assorted F words, while the two tried to find the best way of working remotely, as they had, and still haven't, ever been in the same room together, unless you count that biggest room.

Bonded by a love of psychedelic music and that of rhythms that are irresistible to animals that dance and those that don't, the two set out to explore distant galaxies of possibility, and the 7 dimensions of sound.

Attempting to shed all previous methods of music-creation and attempting to break as many rules as possible, the music you are listening to is the result of more than two years of pushing too hard, of trying to liberate themselves from the shackles of their previous outputs. Many new collaboration tools were tried, and most were discarded.

The three corners of the psychotropic pyramid are completed in the fact that Cailan Burns' visualizations of Isolated Gate's music is splashed on, all over the artwork for the album. Having completed their first mission, they will once again exit the dream world.
