THREE WISE MONKEYS

A WORD FROM THE WISE... Ten years in and still chasing that “sound”. That elusive gold that floats in the ether, waiting for that moment when the alchemist can summon the mystic power of creativity and shape the vibrations into form. Our latest interpretation of the grand intelligence into a musical unified theory is manifested on the ISOLATION EP. Recorded pristinely in isolation at 196kHz on a state of the art AVID desk. The transparent production bathes the listener in the frequency, capturing instinct vs intelligence. An elegant document tracing the endeavour and the pursuit of that elusive “sound”. Kypo, Alex & Brendon
