3 New Artists Join Ember Music: Robert Farrugia, Slowly We Falter & Via Voltage
We are very happy to announce the addition of 3 amazing artists to the Ember Music family, Robert Farrugia, Slowly We Falter and Via Voltage.
Slowly We Falter
Slowly We Falter is a side project started by Scott Brown (Fake Empire) to delve into the experimental side of electronic music and sound design.
It is also an opportunity for him to explore creative limitation, restricting the instruments or software used for each project to inspire creative problem solving and a more minimalist approach.
“I always think that the best way to frustrate an artist is to give him absolute freedom. If you want to give artists some support, make rules about what they can’t do.”
– Peter Gabriel
Each Slowly We Falter EP will be created within a set of limitations to see how far I can push myself musically and also to deepen my understanding of the equipment I am working with.
The result will be released as an EP containing 4 songs that can be purchased via bandcamp.
Retro-Futuristic Synth-Pop, Via Voltage creates inventive art that you can dance to. This is the newest venture by the prolific husband and wife duo J.D. and Natalie Osborn.
What really makes Via Voltage unique is their remarkable use of the duet. Counter-melodies, harmonies, and interwoven melodic conversations glimmer across the stereo spectrum. Feeling an absense of great synth-pop music born out of the 80’s they decided to give it new life and in a modern way.
Not satisfied with bumper-slogan religious songs their lyrics often reflect a deep spirituality that’s conveyed intelligently and intellectually. They sing about love, life, science and science-fiction.
The Osborns have composed original musical scores for the film The Preacher’s Daughter, a promotional video for TEDx Houston, and several radio PSA’s for the Houston Area Women’s Center. They were also featured on a tribute album to outsider artist Jandek (along with Jeff Tweedy of Wilco and more).
