Flaud Logic

"...really grabbing — like a black hole that just sucked me in from the get-go."
— Chris Rich, Composer, Theater of the Mind Rock Opera

Flaud Logic originated in Brooklyn, New York in 2008. Originally an attempt to demo some song ideas composer Michael Kaplan had written over the years, it gradually evolved into a full-length album featuring performances from a cadre of talented musicians including Michael Romeo (guitar), Frank Wyatt (saxophone), Joe Bergamini (drums), and Benny Lackner (Rhodes).

Over a period of months, Michael composed and arranged these musical ideas into what would become the album's core: Four tracks—one, a 23-minute epic—that take the listener through a variety of soundscapes and stories.

The Flaud Logic sound can best be described as progressive rock, a genre true to Michael's love of sonic experimentation. The album spans a range of styles and moods—from elation to sorrow—painted by careful instrumentation and vivid lyrics. Moments of bone-crushing metal, the clockwork intricacy of mathcore, and retro Beatles-era rock, meet soaring and uplifting passages and catchy hooks.
