Conjure One Holoscenic

Album Review: Conjure One – Holoscenic

Conjure One‘s new release came across my feed as an unexpected yet pleasant surprise. Having seen him live just this past summer at Aftermath Festival, I was very excited for the new sound.

No lie, this album almost reduced me to tears.

Miscreant is one of the most wonderfully tragic tracks I have heard in a long time.

Rhys Fulber’s sound is complex and profound, which is to be expected from the Canadian alternative electronic music hero. Holoscenic came out on Armin Van Buuren’s record label and as such it is one of the most accessible works by the Front Line Assembly and Delerium veteran.

With guest vocals from Aruna, Leigh Nash and Christian Burns (anybody remember BBMak? HA!) Holoscenic connects the darkest fringes of esoterica to seminal progressive house vibes, serving as a gateway between the alternative and mainstream electronic music scenes.

Modular Synthesizer by Bit Reduction

Burning Chrome featuring Bit Reduction & Prospero electronic improv sessions

On September 12th, Bit Reduction and Prospero took to the stage at Burning Chrome.

Bit Reduction

For this performance he patched a modular synthesizer system from scratch, building the sound up cable by cable, using very little external gear. The only preconceived notion was to exploit feedback paths. As such, the result was unpredictable, harsh, and largely unpleasant – in the best of ways.

The result was an eclectic and memorable experience that left everyone calling for more. Follow Craig Renaud’s project on his soundcloud page and stay tuned for future performances.

Prospero

Born as a solo project in August 2001 under musician and DJ Wade Anderson, Prospero’s music fuses traditional industrial electronics with a variety of acoustic percussion and exotic instruments. In their fifth album “Paradise or Apocalypse” Prospero continues to explore new themes galvanized by the addition of tribal and folk elements as well as vocals from Sandford and Veela.

What is Live Improv?

The idea is for the musician to approach the show with no pre-conceived idea’s about re-producing tracks. Some elements including sounds, instruments and patterns may have been researched but no practiced and no sequenced. There is no plan about what to play or when. What happens at the show will be all created and programmed on the fly.

BIT REDUCTION

Power noise & gritty ambient project, a mesmerizing blend of distortion and harmony.

Prospero has done this type of show twice in the past. Once with Displacer in 2012 at a Darkrave and once solo at Live Event Sunday’s at the Savage Garden Night Club.
