ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
Test Shot Starfish

Sound Designer/Producers Kyle Schember & Ryan Stuit met on a film set in Los Angeles in 1999. They quickly identified their common passion for electronic music & the spark was lit that fueled the creation of Test Shot Starifsh.

With the release of their first CD EP in the summer of 2003, the two gained notoriety on the Dallas and LA music scenes for their elaborate multimedia live performances that included original compositions, video projection, lighting, and lasers. The hypnotic show has been showcased at venues such as the Hollywood Knitting Factory, Arcadia Theater, Barnsdall Art Park, and the Sunset Room.

Late 2003 inspired the two to fully channel their energies into a multimedia concept rather than a traditional band. They launched www.testshotstarfish.com to showcase digital artwork, videos, and tracks available for streaming and download. This outlet allowed them the freedom to test the waters with various tracks & works of art receiving feedback from global downloaders who are fans of the experimental electronic genre.

Test Shot Starfish fuses myriad styles and influences, including the Orb, Orbital, Plaid, Aphex Twin and Boards of Canada resulting in an eclectic blend of electronica, techno and ambient music that inspires a sensory experience. The latest release is the self-titled debut album that is being released on Kanpai Records, a sub-label of the Domo Music Group. In addition to this debut release Kyle & Ryan work on projects for other artists (Remixes, EPKs and DVDs) and their talent has gained them access to remix tracks for such artists as Lenny Kravitz, Coldplay, Gus Gus and Snoop Dogg.

Their LA based sound design and composing studio has brought them such projects as scoring & sound design for the concert documentary “Coachella” which is being produced by Goldenvoice Entertainment. The movie will premiere in the Spring of 2005 & features 2 tracks from Test Shot Starfish. Their film & television work has included the BMW Film “Who Killed the Idea” which premiered at the Cannes Film Festival. They have been very fortunate to work on several productions with clients such as Showtime, ESPN, Toyota, The United States Army, Capitol Records, Doggy Style Entertainment, Subaru, Activision, & even the NFL.

The future of Test Shot Starfish promises to bring multimedia releases on DVD, CD, and mp3, as well as the continuation of the popular live performances. While the release of this album has been a long time in the making, the duo have already begun work on future videos and tracks.

CD Baby


From an LA duo that thrives on live performances as much as they do on their recordings and multimedia projects, this IDM release has just enough sweet sparkling pop melody to put a fizz in your ears, but complexity in beat and rhythm use the double-sided tape to keep you seated. The perspective here is almost visual as much as aural, textural as much as vibration; get the headphones, close your eyes... before long, peaks of blip are crumbling and crackling over ribbons of synth, and everything is flowing down the ambient low end into a thump gulch. While the whole album seems to resemble a marriage between perennial CD Baby favorites Little Plastic Pilots and Ilkae (in other words, it can be compared to Plaid, Aphex Twin, Boards of Canada), it is not identical to them. All that and they're often asked to remix everything from Coldplay to Snoop.
