I contributed sound design and synthesizers to the new Sanity Shattered EP: Empath.
Sylvain Lupari from Synth&Sequence gave my latest Caustic Reverie album a review.
“The color of the tones and the soundscapes are separated between good effects of reverberations and synth layers which cuddle depths rather colorful painted by very diversified samplings. The sibylline and psychotronic sides are elements that we remark a little bit better after more than one listening. And contrary to the addicting and delicious rhythm of “End Credits”, “End Credits (Extended)” ends this 20th album from Caustic Reverie with a more ambient and especially more melodious approach. But all in all, Bryn Schurman’s music is constantly evolving between two universes where fright is never too far from a strange paranormal sweetness. A fascinating album which will please the amateurs of a music built in the art to seduce eardrums with an approach clearly bore by a vision for the abstract art.”
““Night Trip” sets a tone of contradictory nostalgia, as alluring as it is frightening. Imagine a recurring nightmare you haven’t had since you were a child yet which now pricks at your desire to see it with waking eyes. This is the ouroboros whose songs are documented herein. “Ordered and Filed,” on the other hand, is cloaked in a honeycombed past. With the post-apocalyptic contours of a Tarkovsky wasteland, Schurman manifests the body’s internal mechanisms as destitutions made anthemic by the caress of a distant sun.”
Here’s the first single from my new Caustic Reverie album Here and Away. I made the video by animating the various layers that make up the final artwork.
I’m putting the finishing touches on the new Caustic Reverie album, entitled Here and Away. This project is based on the soundtrack I wrote for the short film by director Abby Sirwatka.
Look for it on Spotify, Bandcamp, and everywhere else in July or August.
Josh and I are working on another batch of songs for Sumptus Ignis but we haven’t decided yet whether this will be an EP or a full-length.
In Caustic Reverie news, the digital re-release campaign continues. So far, I have uploaded Starter House, Decadent Nemesis, Bones of the Earth, Unearthly Sun, The Descending, Remainders, and Mithridatium.
