Melbourne, AU. July 24, 2018. For Immediate release
The Artifact is the debut album from Australian-based, three piece melodic psytrance band, Cymatic Empire. The album is set for release on the 20th of August on UP Records with plans for a 2019 European tour underway.
The Cymatic Empire sound spans from uplifting progressive psy to driving full-on with touches of funk. Each track on the album intricately weaves an array of sonic textures, complex melodies, ethereal vocals and live guitar into a continuously evolving arrangements.
Whilst their sound and live shows put them in a league of their own, its their innovative use of technology and desire to create positive social impact that makes them truly unique.
Although The Artefact has been produced traditionally, the second album, is already in the works, it will come as a fully gamified, interactive Virtual Reality experience. Each song will be an audio-reactive digital environment that lets the listener interact and manipulate the music.
Cymatic Empire is an UP Records research and development project that aims to better understand how Virtual and Augmented Reality may create new income streams. The Artefact can be previewed in full here and available on everywhere on the 20th
