The Faceless Orchestra-The Faceless Orchestra
I am a child of the 80's, and I have always had a fascination with the music and electronic instruments of that era. My first experiences of making music were with the toys I grew up with, like Casio keyboards, and Synsonics drum machines.
This album embraces those experiences.
The Faceless Orchestra-Are You Still Alive?
Are You Still Alive? was written, recorded, mixed ,and mastered between 2010 and early 2012. Sound-wise this album is a drastic departure from the previous release. Although going new directions sonically, the approach to song writing stayed the same but with less programming. Most of the songs on this album started out as improvised jamming on the drums. The other layers of sound were built up around them until it became a cohesive jam. In trying to keep an organic feel of each take, the overuse of computer manipulation was purposely avoided.
Are You Still Alive? was digitally released 4/30/2013 on Broken Levee Records.
