The Marriage of True Minds is a 2013 album by electronic music group Matmos. Drew Daniel and Martin Schmidt, the members of Matmos, spent four years conducting parapsychological experiments based on the Ganzfeld experiment. After subjects were put into a state of sensory deprivation, Daniel attempted to "transmit the concept of the new Matmos record into their minds. Subjects were asked to describe aloud any images that entered their minds
Psychic experimental sessions conducted at St. John's College, Oxford University, UK: Haverford College, Pennsylvania and at home in Baltimore, Maryland. Music and sound recorded at home in Baltimore. All songs Professor Ping Publishing, except "You" which was originally recoded by Leslie Winer and Holger Hiller and ". which was originally recorded by The Buzzcocks. Mixed at Snow Ghost Studio in Whitefish, Montana, and at home in Baltimore, Maryland. Track "Ganzfield (∞)" is a short track that ends in a locked groove
After the release of their underrated 2008 analog synth excursion The Supreme Balloon, Matmos applied their conceptual discipline to collaborations with the So Percussion ensemble and old friends like Lesser and Wobbly. Drew Daniel and MC Schmidt also spent those years conducting parapsychological experiments that became the foundation for The Marriage of True Minds, putting subjects in a state of sensory deprivation and transmitting the concept of the duo's new album to them telepathically
Half the fun of any new Matmos album lies in its concept: Here, Drew Daniel and Martin Schmidt attempted to telepathically communicate their intentions for this record to a group of subjects, whose responses are woven into Marriage. The scientific approach resulted in an antic, lively record.

In sonic terms The Marriage of True Minds is a logical next step for Matmos: a bewildering but collage of sounds and styles, running the gamut from tech house to bluegrass, often in the same track. There are moments of continuity with their past. Aetheric Vehicle"'s pastoral synth noodlings recall Supreme Balloon, while the crisp, expansive electronica of opener "You" and "Teen Paranormal Romance" cleave closest to the classic Matmos sound.
And while the album’s weighed down by an interstellar second half - seriously, the eight-minute closing madness of ESP would make your decades-old 56k modem crack in fear - there’s an earthy sensibility that mucks up a few of Marriage‘s tracks. The creaky wooden whispers behind You, the jar-rattling spectres of Very Green Triangles, and the soaking tribal rhythms of Mental Radio echo along as if Schmidt and Daniel stepped into the rugged pastures of a hundred countries and just pushed ‘Record’. After all, chaos can’t exist without a touch of clarity, and if that was their intention all along, then consider The Marriage of True Minds a mild breakthrough.
