Renaissance Sound was formed in early 2011 in a small shanty located by the Kishwaukee River in DeKalb, IL. Consisting of vibraphone, violin, electric bass, and drums, the band has released a self-titled EP and is working on a second EP to be released later this year. The band is influenced by DIY ethics and a variety of musical styles and prefers to give their music away.

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- Plain and simple [ Renaissance Sound ] is more of a sophisticated brand of noise. It's as if some guru's had informed them that aiming for the sophisticated and modern mind could be cool and unprecedented for bands like them and it's exactly what they on this self title. They've developed an intellectual sound with attributions of many. Long swirling violin and the perfect combination of post-rock and jazz somehow bring [ ROVO ] to mind but the added math(y) elements give the band a unique edge. Their mild and moderate noises will most likely makes you think [ JAPANESE ] but they are not.

Review for OVUM by Chronotope Project

Crafting a concept album is an incredibly difficult task. Tying together a cohesive narrative across a record’s worth of songs isn’t just daunting, it’s an endeavour that even some of the industry’s finest have failed to do memorably. This task, however, becomes notably more difficult when you’re dealing in the abstract via instrumental soundscapes. That is what Chronotope Project, the moniker of composer Jeffrey Ericson Allen, attempts to do with his latest project, ‘Ovum.’
