The Spheres are: Guy Harris (guitar, bass, clarinet, loops, samples, visuals) Susan Gamble (violin, violoncello, piano, loops, samples, visuals) Seth Rees (guitar, bass, loops, percussion, drums) Jonathon Murphy (bass, hand-percussion, drums) Sean Wyers (bass, hand-percussion, drums) Ben Mastwyk, Nestora Pentseris, Penne Thornton (projectionista) The Spheres are an experimental AV ensemble from Melbourne, Australia comprised of filmmakers, animators, multi-instrumentalists and expatriates collectively exploring the cross over between live music and visual projection. First forming in the Spring of 2002 the band quickly joined Melbourne's vibrant experimental musical community to offer not only a sound which blended noise and melody with a dynamic crescendo oriented style of composition but an accompanying visual element which has seen something similar to "the origins of the cinema" regularly recreated by the audiovisualists over the past 4 years in the smoky enclaves of Melbourne's live music scene. Initially playing loosely composed musical scores to visual loops dubbed to video, more recent performances have included additional ensemble members mixing and sequencing visual loops and silent short films live with an inventory of computers, distribution amplifiers, GEMs and a tangled web of leads carrying signal paths to projectors. Musical elements have gradually evolved over time to include a range of increasingly diverse instrumentation which experiment and utilise the tones/textures of strings, piano, guitar, bass, clarinet, bells, samples, drones, loops, hand percussion and drums. The Spheres debut CDVD release Audible Lines was launched in the winter of '06 and documents the initial creative tangents of the band in its original form as a three-piece. Recorded live at Thirty Mill Studios in Brunswick, the CD is accompanied by a DVD containing visual material and filmic works from the groups live set. Excited by the concept of the CDVD, Audible Lines is the first of what is to be numerous AV releases by The Spheres which explore the unique and inherently synchronistic relationship between sound and vision. --------------- ( One of my favorite band and "Cordate" is one of my favorite post-rock track.

The Great Long Distance by John D. Reedy

The Great Long Distance is an audible recollection of the first 12 months of a long distance relationship, including the highs and lows and moments in between. It is a journal without words, each of the 12 tracks representing each month respectively. Inspired by the format of NIN's "Ghosts I-IV", the album is a sonic tapestry of different moods and themes, with various recurring motifs and the subtle melding of synthesizer and samples; the result something not quite classical, ambient or electronic - rather, an eclectic blend of the three. For fans of Ólafur Arnalds, Nils Frahm and later Ulver


Review of "Burial Songs" by Palehorse/Palerider

In order to excel in the independent music industry, an act has to define itself as especially unique with a sound quite unlike anything else in the community. This is a tall order, one that isn’t easily filled by acts entering variations of rock music due to the immense amount of bands flooding the scene right now. Palehorse/Palerider, a “doomgaze” trio from Denver, has released an EP entitled ‘Burial Songs’ that does a surprisingly superb job at separating itself from the pack. Let’s delve into it.


Review for "I Want to Stand Where the Sun Himself Shakes with Fear" by Voices from Deep Below

Even though the independent rock scene is quite inundated with new acts, there’s always a welcome place for an outfit that changes the formula enough to be consistently interesting and worth taking notice of. The New York-based alternative rock group Voices from Deep Below attempts to do just that, fusing together a variety of styles into a surprisingly coherent sound. Their new record, “I Want to Stand Where the Sun Himself Shakes with Fear”, is a five song album that navigates alt-rock, experimental, and borderline metal and progressive influences all at the same time.
