ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
"revealed" is artist lectronin's first release on HiCap Records. It starts off with "self-inflicted", a hard-rockin' electronica piece with wild didgeridoo-like synthetic textures that sounds like it could be set to the opening credits of an action film. New-wavish "revelation" pumps with with a four-on-the-floor kick and vocoded background vocals in the chorus. "retrospectus" is an eclectic mish-mash of string quartet, piano, and hip-hop rhythms. Finally, "henna" rounds it out with its winding and erratic rhythmic noise served up on a nice bed of dub.

Portland electronic musician lectronin (Will Stewart) is a maverick who refuses to conform to anyone's expectations of what a classically trained musician or electronic music artist should be. Even his name (formed from an English-Japanese hybrid; “elect ronin”) means "one who chooses to be masterless." Stepping outside the standard electronic genres, he views them as colors on a palette that can be mixed and combined with other elements (classical instrumentation, rock beats, avant-garde noise) to create new textures and sonic mashups, that while sometimes danceable, find a life outside the club.

Growing up in the San Francisco Bay Area not far from Silicon Valley, Will found early on that he had a passion for two things; music and computers. After completing two music degrees in composition, he abruptly dove into the electronic music scene. Influenced by artists like the Crystal Method, BT, Moby and Daft Punk, he formed lectronin in 2005.

lectronin released his debut EP, revealed, in 2007 on his own imprint, HiCap Records, and it's now available in digital form throughout North America, Europe, Australia, New Zealand, and Japan. Taking his art from the studio to the stage, he has performed several shows throughout the Pacific Northwest, including opening for Tooth and Nail's electronic artist Joy Electric. His music has been featured on the Internet in several podcasts including the MacCast and Night Guy Electronica.

Amazing
This CD truly is a work of art, and rather unique, I might add. With a mixture of electronica, rock, hard-core, new age, and much more, the whole album shines with incredible quality and sound. You'll find the lyrics to "revelation" circling through your head almost instantly, as well as the other three songs keeping you interested for a long time to come. Can all of these genres, fused together, sound this good? Apparently! I highly recommend it.
