Posted On:03.31.2016

What is the history of the band – how did it come into being, members, its journey (in brief) and what does the name of your band signify?

Here’s something for all you not so called mentals..
We are a nucleus of Avant-garde musicians with a mix of old and new school, we are always willing to be audacious in our approach and yet are austere, when it comes to either playing covers or writing our own songs .
Venturing with little or no timidity doing psychedelic progressive, progressive Jazz.
“Syntonic Comma” is an aurora kind of a phenomenal experience.

Band members :
Lead Guitar & Vocals – Joe Peters
Lead Guitar – Aaron Almeida
Vocals – Jude Al
Bass – Suraaj Parab
How do rejuvenate your creative insights / get the adrenaline going?

Through Meditation & always keeping a Positive Mindset.

Of all the songs you’ve created, which is your favorite one and why ?

“Realities of Existence” is our most favorite one as it basically is a Sanskrit proverb written by the famous Indian Poet & Playwright Kalidasa during Fifth century AD. The Feel of to this Track is very Progressive Rock…It’s also got a very Dark feel to it.

Can you share about some funny incident that happened on-stage / during performance / with you or the other band members ?

Nothing as such has happened with us so far

How has the musical journey been so far for you / your band and what are you looking forward to ?

It’s Been Grueling , making it Big on the International Stage has not been a cake walk. But it was overwhelming to have won an award for the song “Inside Of Me” in Akademia Music Awards January 2016.
So who are your favorites/ Icons/ Role Models in the field of music?

Pink Floyd music, Porcupine Tree, King Crimson, Emmerson, Lake & Palmer, RUSH,Steven Wilson, Guthrie Govan, Richie Blackmore , Eric Clapton.

Do your songs carry a message / a theme or a story ..if so can you share more on it?

“Realities of Existence is an Album which is compiled of diverse music Forms…It could be heard for listening pleasure. Some of the tracks are instrumentals, while some carry electronic based dance music in it.
By and large this Album is meant to convey a Message of Love & How each one of us live our lives through the day…
The track “Inside of Me” was written by us keeping in mind that the world outside ourselves is created from the world within ourselves.
The music is very peaceful to listen as we’ve kept it very sober and soothing using electronic instruments. You’ll also hear the tablas just to give it an authentic Indian flavor.
“Soul (Levitation)” Is a very clinically written Progressive Rock for the musically inclined listeners…This one was written to just let go loose on Stage…
“Message Of Love” This one is very dear to us. I happened to write it one late night reflecting on all the crime, atrocity,resentments & injustice occurring all around us. If only each one of us could spread this message then this world would be a better place.
The feel of this tune is very Pop Rock…with a lot of guitar backing.
“Another Day” The EDM guys will Love this one..This one just came out.
“Tranquility” A true uplifting piece of work , this one gives you a sense of serenity.
the feel to this one is very Indian , Using Flute back ground Vocals and Tablas.
“Insanity” As the name suggests, it is totally insane. Had done this a while ago …Keeping a very Jazz, Rock and Funk Feel to it. It’s a total freak out…
“Mary Theme” Another one for the EDM lovers…This one was written for my Wife Marylou.
“Erotica” Crazy Violins , Heavy Guitars , A pure Classical Metal sort of feel makes you want to jump and reach for the sky…
This is our First Ever Album
The Whole Idea is To Spread The Message Of Love Peace And Harmony ….Music Has No Language…Music Brings The World Together.

Do you have any words of advice for youngsters who want to form their own bands or are thinking of getting into this line ?
