Signal To Noise Profile

Bio

Signal-to-Noise is an electro-rock musician/songwriter/producer based in Chicago. Featuring soothing melodic vocals, intricate harmonies, and rich ambient textures. Signal-to-Noise draws influence from a diverse range of cerebral alternative rockers ( ex: Grizzly Bear, Andrew Bird, and Supertramp ) to create powerful and inspirational music exploring the complexities of human existence.

Background

My name is Michael Downing. In December of 2014 with a bit of savings and the invaluable support of family and friends, I abandoned a career in neuroscience to become a full-time musician. Up until that point all of my major life decisions were based on fear. Fear of disappointing others. Fear of becoming impoverished. Fear of the consequences of not following the beaten path. I had forgotten that life is an experience, an ever-changing amalgamation of thoughts and feelings whose substance can only be defined by the experience. And so I seek to redefine my own life.

Starting in January I locked myself away in my Chicago apartment, sheltered from the winter in order to compose,record, and produce my first full length Signal-to-Noise album. I am proud to announce that this experimental indie rock LP is now available on [ iTunes ], [ Spotify ], and the official [ Music Store ].

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.’

Review of A703 by Naal

NAAL is an eclectic music project led by Chicago composer Dave Mantel. This talented musician has a true passion for great melodies and haunting musical textures. His blend of ambient, shoegaze and experimental drone music feels personal and unique, echoing the work of artists such as Slowdive, Boards of Canada or Sigur Ros, just to mention a few.
