ARTIST BIO: IT’S A SECRET
IT'S A SECRET* combine the topics of futurism, philosophy, political science, science fiction, technology, and theosophy into a modern 21st century sound, utilizing analog and digital electronic music technologies.
IT'S A SECRET's debut electronic music album entitled Save The World, was released in December of 2006 (a follow-up album will be released in January of 2010).
The thirteen songs on the album were recorded on a computer Digital Audio Workstation. In addition to composing with the digital renderings of actual instruments (sampled instrument loops), various acoustic instruments were played; such as a 19th century alto horn, a mandolin, and a Tibetan singing bowl. The album also features eBow electric guitar, Moog theremin, and various analog and digital synthesizers.
IT'S A SECRET evolved from a synth band called SQUID (Society for the Qualitative Understanding of Informational Design).
SQUID had achieved some notable success prior to its dissolution. Musical scores for a television show and a feature film were composed; the band had their own 30 minute television special which was a documentary called "The Great Squid Hunt" and featured the music video "Cybernetic Information" (produced by Brady Hicks); and were also guest hosts on a music special for Radio Free Europe/Radio Liberty which aired the band’s music to an audience of over 5 million people.
The guest artists that appear in Save The World include Glenn Fisher (former member of SQUID); arrangements on “My Fantasy”, Brady Hicks (former video artist for SQUID); theremin on “Theremin Rhythm”, and The Guru; Tibetan singing bowl on “Mantra”.
The mastering of the album Save The World was performed by Grammy Award nominee Myles Boisen (writer for Electronic Musician magazine) at the Headless Buddha Mastering Lab in Oakland, California.
