Plays beside the drums guitar and various electronic instruments.
He is also a dubstep/electronica producer, and is currently working on his debut electronic album. A tasteful peak into his upcoming works it’s this free, four track EP aviable for free download from his Soundcloud and Bandcamp page.
Subtle and smooth electronic textures with roots back to Progressive and Trance music are twisted in and out by murderous wobbling basses and contorted synth blow-backs. This is a colorful and dynamic, 21 minutes incursion in the present and future of electronic music. The closing “New Birth” it’s an extremely exciting mixture of Progressive (Electronic) Rock music with resonances back to Yes and reminiscences from the experimental and progressive flavor of Animals as Leaders, but incorporating modern, contorted, crushing, nowadays fancy sounds and dissonances.
Interesting and refreshing, extremely promising ride, really curious to listen a whole album!
