More information: "What happens when you combine the sounds of modern Progressive Rock with the Synth-driven styles of alternative rock?” Synaesthesia. Taking the best parts of traditional Prog and bringing it most definitely into the 21st century, with a keen sense of melody and memorable, catchy riffs as well as plenty of experimentation.
Synaesthesia's music is primarily written by 19 year old multi-instrumentalist Adam Warne who incorporates influences from acts such as Frost*, Porcupine Tree and Muse.
It wasn't until his time at The BRIT School of Performing Arts and Technology (where alumni include artists such as Amy Winehouse, Imogen Heap and Katie Melua) that Adam Warne began experimenting with the Progressive style of writing, having been a keen fan of the genre since childhood. After graduating in 2011, he went on to study an undergraduate Bmus course in Popular Music at Middlesex University. Adam is currently in his second year. It was at Middlesex University that Adam met guitarist Nikolas Jon Aarland where they discovered a shared musical taste. Adam introduced Nikolas to his music and pretty soon Synaesthesia was born: the combined powerful sounds of guitars with the lush sounds of both analogue and software synths.
Produced by Michael Holmes of IQ, with the recording taking place at Aubitt Studios, expertly engineered by Rob Aubrey. All instruments are played by Adam with the exception of guitars by Nikolas.
