Automated Acoustics music is a slow burn. Often starting as a tiny spark in the ear, and building to an inferno ready to consume you.
Previous releases 2004-2011 have been adventurous and experimental, delving into twisted swamp blues, glacial electronica, spaced-out piano, and grinding industrial jazz. Receiving critical acclaim, but remaining in the undergound.
Overall it sounds a bit like if Tom Waits collaborated with Aphex Twin, then was remixed by Hans Zimmer.
Automated Acoustics has constantly been creating music behind the scenes for music agencies, landing placements for music & sound design in the trailers for Alien:Covenant & Antlers, among other syncs.
The new material varies from Alt-rock, electronica, trailer music, orchestral and various blends between. Made with live instruments, found sounds, synths and vocals. Guest musicians lend their expertise.
Now after a break of 10 years, a new album emerges from the dust and shadows.
