Los Angeles, CA (PRWEB) January 27, 2008
Silver and Blue is a collection of choreography music for Machina Candeo Fire Performance Company. The name (Machina Candeo) means, loosely, in Latin "Glitter/glowing Machine" a name that incorporates union of opposites: Glowing = life, fire, energy, or soul. Machine = inanimate, lifeless, power, the physical world. The album was completely composed, produced and performed by TyCyPhy (http://www.myspace.com/tycyphy) the company's Creative Director.
The music is as dramatic and as diverse as Machina Candeo's live shows. Fire and Dance are the themes of both the live performances (http://tinyurl.com/2fvvv5) and the recording of Silver and Blue. From lush ambiences, beautiful soundscapes, funky beats and mechanically jarring music; an incredibly original recording was created.
The recording is a mixture of live instruments blended with technology. Musically each song is different. Persian, Asian, jazz, rock, African, techno and industrial influences are present through ought the 17 music tracks. The album is divided into two movements Silver (more uplifting music with a hint of darkness) and Blue (darker music with hints of beauty).
Ty Cy-Phy is a Los Angeles based musician, producer, recording engineer and, of course, an accomplished fire performer. Trained in classical music (and classical guitar) Ty Cy-Phy has been performing in progressive rock, pop, techno, gotha-billy and art rock bands since he picked up a guitar at age 12. He also has worked on several soundtrack multimedia projects for independent movies, technology companies and web media.
