Stick the kettle on, get comfortable and prepare yourself for one of the most influential and accomplished producers on this planet Brian Transeau a.k.a. BT as he delivers his fourth long player of his 14 year career at the forefront of electronic music production titled 'Emotional Technology' on Dutch imprint Black Hole Recordings in March 2007. The album was only released in the United States so far, but now Black Hole Recordings is going to release it, including a bonus disc with remixes by Tiësto, Mark Norman, Junkie XL, Sander Kleinenberg and others ...
BT is the creative force currently driving digital song writing and sound scaping in its evolution into the audio-visual-spiritual art form that will define and inspire the human narrative of the 21st Century. He is re-mastering the obsolete soundtrack of our late analogue planet, reassembling from the chaos of smashed bytes blurring our sampled lives a new paradigm of beauty for This Binary Universe .
"To marry melody, harmony and memorable song writing with the most bleeding-edge technology possible is my passion. These are the things that excite me."
The distinct stamp of BT's virtuoso artistry and craftsmanship is already imprinted across the wide pantheon of modern popular arts and entertainment.
He composed the high octane film score for the blockbuster hit 'The Fast and the Furious' as well as the haunting tonal background for Charlize Theron's Academy Award-winning performance in 'Monster'. His other scores include Doug Liman's 'Go', 'Under Suspicion' (starring Morgan Freeman and Gene Hackman), Miramax's 'The Underclassman', Sony's 'Stealth' and the video game 'Tiger Woods Legends'.
His wizardry of the keyboards, classical or electronic, as well as his producing, song writing and orchestral composing and scoring talents have been showcased in collaborations with major artists, including Sting and David Bowie. Considered the founding pioneer of trance electronica, he has engineered legendary mixes for Madonna, Seal and Sarah McLachlan.
BT seemed fated for his present leadership role in new musical directions and innovations. His predilection for always seeking and ascending to the next level began when he first heard electronic music as an adolescent. "This is what my heroes Debussy, Stravinsky and the like were looking for. Technology-based music is the only idiom that packs such infinite sonic possibilities." The revolutionary fruits of BT's musical quest thus far are powerfully evident in the glitched-out yet warmly organic soundscapes infusing his epic albums, IMA, ESCM, Movement In Still Life and Emotional Technology. His fifth, currently untitled, studio album is nearing completion in Los Angeles and Australia (with guest artists such as Stuart Copeland of The Police). His second 2006 creation/release will be This Binary Universe, previewed by Keyboard Magazine : "In a hundred years, it could well be studied as the first major electronic work of the new millennium. It's that good."
BT's musical explorations, progressing well ahead of the curve in digital sound composition and programming, necessitated the creation of his own software company 'Sonik Architects' in support of his expanding vision. Two new programming applications, Break Tweaker and Stutter Edit, both prototyped by BT himself in cSound and Supercollider (two command line-based music-scripting languages) will be commercially released under the Sonik Architects banner later this year.
