POLYPHONIC THE VERBOSE
ARTIST / BAND: POLYPHONIC THE VERBOSE
SONG (MP3): MOVING ON
ALBUM: Abstract Data Ark
FILE UNDER: smoky-lounge-urban cool ... the future of hip-hop
INFO: Polyphonic the Verbose creates sound-forms blasted by futureshock: surreal politically charged cut and paste. Understood as code, the static-filled hip-hop, experimental electronic music and dubbed out reggae signify a maze, an attempt at unbelievably detailed sonic architecture. Polyphonic aka Will Freyman studied classical European piano as a child, and went on to perform jazz trombone, Indonesian gamelan music and medieval European choral music. He spearheaded a number of group recordings on Audio 8 including 2001's Dolce Stil Nuovo album Infrastructure, 2003's Certain Sound, and in 2004 Prostitute Karaoke. read more from the source...
