Esperik Glare[edit]


Martineau has collaborated with Monte Cazazza, John Everall (Tactile), Florian-Ayala Fauna (In Serpents and Seas), and Kenji Siratori.[4][2][5][6]


Appealing to fans of Nurse with Wound, CSAF Records called "Frightful Telekinesis" "[a] real psychedelic nightmare" that "might just be his most accomplished and affecting audio collage to date."[3] In 2014, English television series Ideal creator Graham Duff ranked the Esperik Glare/Tactile album Abyssophonics twenty-ninth on his list "Epic Best Albums of 2014" stating it was a "subtle and sympathetic collaboration" between the two musical artists.[5]
