“Realm” project is a concept series of albums that follow through and connect ideas that revolutionized music scene since 1980's and 90's with the development of genres such as Hip Hop, Ambient and Drum&Bass with todays extensions of these ideas expressed in todays styles such as Future Jazz, Electronica, Dub Step, etc. The primary philosophy driving these series is to create realities of their own within each album.
Each work is crafted with the unique stylistic and very personal sound of artists which over the past few decades creatively shape-shifted the face of music, as well as the upcoming new artists of today. The first album “Realm I” has been made in collaboration with a renowned producer and a musician Bill Laswell, whose groundbreaking pioneership in exploring the unknown territories and prolific approach is visible in almost all genres of music.
ABOUT Barton Rage
(born on December 8, 1982) is a guitarist, multi-instrumentalist, composer/arranger and producer. His music draws upon many different genres, mainly avant-garde and future jazz, but also funk, fusion, metal, world, classical, reggae, dub, drum 'n' bass and ambient music. He incorporates diverse styles to explore open minded ways of expression in harmonic, melodic and rhythmic development. His composing methods focus on intuitive approach to sound and dynamics in music as a whole, aiming at creating a self existing esthetic sound flow experience in each work.
Rages music can be characterized as morphing sounds and melodic noises of not clearly distinguishable electronic and acoustic instruments. Gradual transformation of textures into clear melodies, “alien” sounding improvisation or rich spheric background sounds, plays a big role in an emotional development of each song. Also rhythmic grooves in melodic instruments as well as drum and percussive instruments undergo a metric mutation between chaotic and steady beats – chaos within order, and order within chaos...
