"Tescee's follow-up to his smashing debut album Io is, if anything, even more smashing."
-- Robert Carlberg, Electronic Musician

BIO
+++++++++++++

Ian Tescee (tee' see) composes the electronic music soundtrack of inconceivably grand space-related themes, both inner and outer. In 1982, he released his debut album, Io, as a red-vinyl limited edition LP. Its unique packaging and powerful Electronic Music style quickly garnered critical acclaim and international airplay, the echoes of which continue to this day. For example, a recent 2004 review by on the Encylopedia of Electronic Music website, based in Russia, states:

"Sometimes a recording shows up that just grabs you and doesn't let go. Ian Tescee's Io is exactly this kind of album...I'd like to recommend this classic to all lovers of EM...It's simply a must!"

Tescee's music has proved a favorite for producers of space-themed multimedia, currently providing backdrop for the This Day In Space website www.thisdayinspace.com, and covering ground from in-house productions at the Jet Propulsion Laboratory where the Voyager mission to Jupiter was controlled, to Andrew Rennie's Spaceshow Documentaries at Southern FM in Australia. Teaming up with nationally-renowned space artists Ron Miller www.black-cat-studios.com and W.K. Hartmann www.psi.edu/hartmann (The Grand Tour -- A Traveler's Guide to the Solar System and others) made the album artwork visually stunning as well.

The music of Ian Tescee is a genre-defying synthesis of the real and the imagined, bringing together electronic and acoustic textures (with a dash of quantum physics and poetry in the mix). In style, he has been favorably compared to Vangelis and Jean Michael Jarre, and was among the first to consolidate early electronic synthesizer and orchestral styles with genuine acoustical instruments. The philosophical underpinnings of his second album, Continua, not only retained his original audience but also resonated with listeners of emerging New Age music, which in its pure beginnings was similarly engaged in altering consciousness through the use of sound. In 1989, he was one of the artists profiled in P.J. Birosik's definitive book, The New Age Music Guide -- Profiles and Recordings of Top New-Age Musicians, which described Ian's music as "The aural equivelant of a zoom lense."

In addition to his own three CDs, Ian has worked on numerous others in a 20-year career as primary engineer and producer at Startsong Recording, Inc. in Colorado, where he was involved in projects ranging from Phil Keaggy's Dove Award-winning CD, Acoustic Sketches to the Heavy-Metal underground classic Ample Destruction by Jag Panzer. His wide-ranging production experience contibutes immensely to the sonic excellence of his recordings, and this eclectic diversity is driving his work on his fourth CD, now taking place in his newly completed next-generation studio, which he has designed and built from the ground up. For the future, expect great music to get even better!
