Its intriguing how music has continuously evolved to a very extensive catalog that allows artists to showcase their art in dynamic forms; this is the story of a proficient producer who goes uniquely as Dead Cat Bounce and owing to the versatile and diverse nature of his art, his stage name might, after all, seem appropriate. His style does not really conform to genre restrictions and he prides himself as a non-conformist who is able to experiment and improvise on various genres such as soul, funk, R&B, hip-hop, pop and rock among others. In his artistic world, emotions are turned into affecting melodies with the near-universal appeal without as much as a lyric being uttered!
Leveraging on the inspiration from blending filmography with music and also from Thomas Bergersen’s own work “Flight of The Silverbird”, Dead Cat has a dedicated new collection dubbed, “Symphomaniac (Instrumental Version)”- a 20-track collection with some of the most stunningly innovated songs that are masterpieces in instrumental transcendence!
Every track in here possesses dynamic creativity and faultless imagination and I was deeply entranced by the opening track, “Tension & Release” – a cinematically themed symbolic soundtrack that is transcendental and blends the classic elements with the piano, drums and some organic instruments for that ethereally satisfying sound that keeps on building and giving life to the narrative and integrates some cliff hangers and finally releases the tension leaving a listener gratified and exquisitely entertained.
“Chain Reaxtion” has a very enticing guitar intro that is bass orderly and the melody flexes some scientifically detailed melody and rhythm that is very ear-pleasing and the best to meditate to.
“Tourists in the Caribbean” is undeniably contagious and easily memorable that allows you to draw in your own fantasies with its melodies taking you to a very distant island with holiday vibes all through. Needless to say, this is the perfect soundtrack to get you in that summer mood!
There is enchantment and compulsion throughout this over 1-hour listening experience and you just have to be in for it; Follow the attached link to stream, “Symphomaniac (Instrumental Version)” and find out the tracks that you most resonate with!
