'transmography' (1784) -- 'to describe artistic processes of continual innovation and cumulative transformation.' (william blake) James Evans and Michael Frazier met while working as door to door environmental canvassers in Austin, TX, September 2002. Transmography came into being in February 2003. They have toured the US from LA to NYC and plan to continue the journey as long as it engages them. They are not easily compared to other musical groups. The live show is something different than you have ever experienced. The new record ' Polydactyly' will be released in March on Chapel Hill, NC based 8088 records. This is what they had to say about it... 'Having dwindled from being a four-piece post-rock outfit down to a mere two members, Transmography continues their exploration of music as an art form with their latest release. This album brings along the band's love of digital synths, 70's rock, and cybernetic robots from the future. As most groups tend to suffer from losses in the member line-up, Transmography has taken unfortunate circumstance and turned it into an opportunity for innovative creativity. ' Polydactyly gracefully combines washy synth grooves, the distorted clang of iron bars, driving electronic disco beats, and warm guitar swells that weave throughout the music as the night tide coming into the shore. This eight song record is a constantly growing enigma from start to finish breaking the 'rules' of modern day instrumental music. Hopefully this answers some questions. If you have one, just ask. Come see a show and find out what these two are all about. From the 8088 records site:----- 'Synth pop textures, experimental instrumentation, and two innovative individuals create the project that is steadily pushing the boundaries of sonic exploration.' From the Austin Chronicle:----' Bombastic, intense, ambient, and swelling. This stuff is as bizarre as it is beautiful. The live show will give you flashbacks.'
