EP: Music For Spaceships And Forests
Cat. No: FG005
Label: Friendly Ghost Recordings USA – - Unsigned in the UK
‘Music For Spaceships And Forests’ is a character based storyline composed for three acoustic guitars. in the pieces, Twi The Humble Feather’s influences of modern minimalist composers such as Philip Glass and Steve Reich shine through and blend with avant garde approach. Song structures focus on dynamics, fugues, and movements. Twi The Humble Feather applies classical and flamenco guitar techniques to an abstract and experimental songwriting formula. falsetto wall-of-sound vocals with imaginary languages give the pieces an uplifting and transcending spirit, brought forth from influences of african chant music. Twi The Humble Feather pulls from a unique combination of influences and mediums to create a sound hard to attach any genre; precious to experience and demystify.
Led by the creative direction of Anthony Lebron, Twi The Humble Feather borrows from the myriad works of great composers such as Arvo Part, Philip Glass, J.S. Bach, Iannis Xenakis, Dimitri Shostakovich, and Carl Orff. Lebron, a classically trained guitarist, introduced flamenco and classical techniques to the trio, which, prior to their brotherly commitment to ‘Twi The Humble Feather’, were strictly pop, rock, and experimental based. Bryan Doring is the founding member of Alias Pail, a once twee pop inspired project now leaning more and more towards the usage of quirky ‘bent’ instruments alongside subtle finger-style guitar works. Hektor Fontanez, has played with, and led, several bands such as Lasonik, Abstract Music Project, and Lil Humble Veli. He currently has an experimental and acoustic based solo project entitled Liek. Both Alias Pail and Liek (pronounced lee-ek), are currently producing various recording projects.
The sound of ‘Twi The Humble Feather’, in its trio form, could be characterized as a cinematic, sci-fi adventure. although currently a completely acoustic act, using no electronic effects whatsoever, the trio manages to vocally present percussive rhythms and sweeping spaceship sounds. chanting falsettos are often accompanied with delicate and fierce, super-dynamic staccato melodies and guitar chords; which often create intermittent minimalist drones by the unified resonance of acoustic frequencies.
Currently, ‘Music For Spaceships And Forests’ is the only completely realized work in the repertoire of ‘Twi The Humble Feather’. However, the trio is currently readying a new work entitled ‘Twi Presents The Antek Songs’ for live performance. in addition, Lebron has begun the opening sketches for the sequel of ‘Music For Spaceships And Forests’.
