"Autamata is the brainchild of Dublin-based artist/producer Ken McHugh. My Sanctuary was recorded over a year-long period whilst the producer was working on various other musical projects. Ken describes the album as, "A manifold of sounds that merge to create an aural journey of mixed experiences and emotions". The album was built up from layers of electronic music, structured into songs featuring guest vocalists, Carol Keogh and Cathy Davey."
"McHugh's autonomous blend of 'real' instruments with digitised sound is warm and melodic, while the album's title 'My Sanctuary' is a hint to it's internal logic."

"From the cradle, to the treadmill,
To the rocker, to the last sigh
Some are made happy when something dies"
