Rasplyn is the solo project of Carolyn O’Neill who uses her experience with classical composition, and as a Clairvoyant Reader and Energy Healer, to create mystical and visual landscapes with her music. Her style is dark, but beautifully filled with textured layers influenced by world culture and nature’s mysterious forces. Her compositions bear moments of writhing intensity and flowing release bathed in haunting vocals. Rasplyn’s debut album, ‘Scenes Through the Magic Eye’, explores the realms of her eternal being, looking deeply at the journey her lives have taken throughout history, her spirit evolving each step of the way.

Mythical Records are purveyors of fine art electronica music, experimental music, contemporary classical music, and ambient
music. While our artists' aesthetics are experimental in nature, we primarily deal with professionally trained classical musicians, who have turned to a more experimental side of music, including stylings spanning the darkly decadent to the childlike dreams of fairy tales....more
