Rites of Dissonance

Apollon is an abstract electronic outfit involving Martin Lee-Stephenson. Apollon makes use of tape-looping, mantras and analogue manipulation, mixed with harsh, World music rhythms and sounds from various percussion instruments such as Arabic Dumbek and Punjabi tombe; and also utilises found sound, mantra and occasional EVP recordings within these occult inspired works. Themes normally feature Thelema, the Gnostic Christian current and the Hermetic tradition. Apollon has released 10 full length albums with labels: DOR, EMP, Vuzh and many compilation appearances.

Stephenson has been working in the experimental genre for many years under different pseudonyms. He has been credited in some way, either as producer and/or artist with over 100 releases to date. He also works within the visual field making short, experimental films.
