Archive: An Aural Compilation of Past & Present
Released by WVC Productions, Archive... is a 13 track collage of genres and musical styles. From the reggae fueled "Prelude..." to the no strings attached, hard rocking "Eighth Step," Jason York gives listeners a view inside his mind. Jason York is a solo artist from San Diego. Originally trained on the bass guitar, Jason has branched out to fulfill almost every role on his latest album Archive. Bassist, guitarist, keyboardist, percussionist, and programmer. In addition, York recorded and produced the album on his own. Most of his previous albums contained entirely electronic instrumentation. This is the first album where Jason has done what he does best. Play the bass. 'I want to create music that will produce wonder & amazement. Or that can bring back a memory to someone of some other music or life experience that makes them surprised to even remember it.' 'When I listen to what I think is great music I develop a sense of self. An amazement grows as a result of constructing a context for the music to reside in my life. I want to produce a feeling of awe and amazement that is not a reaction to talent, technique, or style, but is an epiphany of the listener of how my music applies to their existence.' Jason York is contantly striving to create new material. Not just new for him, but new to all ears. A series of notes to reproduce virginity. To bring the listener to a time where the ears were open to all notes in any sequence or pattern. When sound was illogical and music was only a word. A legendary concept that still needed defining.
