ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
My Formula is a project from Chris Bihuniak that expresses his latest music ideas, collaboration with guest musicians and production capabilities. The album title A.C.M.E. means Ambient Collaboration Music Experience.

Each song uses a similar arrangement formula. They all start with an electric piano chord progression that repeats from beginning to end. For vocals, most songs combine singing and speaking the same one-phrase lyric. Instruments included sampled and electronic drums, electric guitars and synthesizers. You'll also hear an Irish flute on 2 tracks and a Moroccan guitar on 1 track.

Although Chris wrote and performed most of the parts, he invited guest musicians to collaborate in an unexpected way. Every guest musicians was only given a brief song sample to record their parts. For example, they might only receive 8 measures of just piano and drums in order to create a bass line, beat or guitar riff. Singers were given a lot of creative freedom, but only with minimal portions of the song. The result was fun surprises once the song was finished.

Here is a list of guest musicians in each song:

1. Pleasure and Pain: Fritz, vocals; Ali, beat; Brooks, bass; Remy, strange noises; Voices: Text-2-Speech.
