David Muddiman is named a band member of Central PA's "Mysterytrain" as the group's Sound Engineer, responsible for advancing technical requests for events using his "Starground Audio" gear, and for being Mysterytrain's BE (Band Engineer) lead mix engineer for venues and festivals using local production.

The first project announced is a live recording to occur at the band's next indoor festival on the weekend of Feb 4th 2012. All stage inputs split three ways will be recorded to 32 tracks by Eric Melega who previously recorded 48 tracks of the live event "DeadFest" which David Muddiman mixed live and remixed the 48 tracks to stereo.

Each member of the group is spontaneous and artistic as well as introspective and goal oriented. Experiments have included running Meyer SIM3 on the bass amp and keyboard amp, in addition to the main system and the monitor system. Also band members not only allow David Muddiman to walk onstage and listen to the monitors, they have also let him perform each instrument on the stage with the other band members playing.
