LOS ANGELES, 2019... Sweeping, emotionally charged synth-scapes punctuated by excitingly upbeat dance floor destroyers reveal the varied creative palate of young electronic composer Bryce Miller. ‘Monochrome Daydream’, his third instrumental album released on Spun Out Of Control (following City Depths and WASP), is his first on vinyl.
Since those original cassette-only releases with the label, American-born Bryce has been forging a musical career in the movie business. His scoring and sound design has graced a host of big movie trailers; some of the most notable being Blade Runner 2049 and, more recently, Godzilla: King Of The Monsters.
‘Monochrome Daydream’ builds on that experience working in Hollywood to deliver his own, unique widescreen vision, freed of any prescribed visuals and brief. The album thus takes the listener on their own journey in sci-fi and fantasy, providing a fiercely contemporary soundtrack to our own flights of imagination.
Cover design and visuals by Eric Adrian Lee. Download cards supplied with all retail copies. Limited edition coloured vinyl.
Bryce Miller on Monochrome Daydream:
“Monochrome Daydream feels like the album I’ve wanted to compose since first getting into the world of synthesizer-focused music. So many composers, soundtracks and artists have influenced my music, from Vangelis to Cliff Martinez, and I’m proud to now release my original take on the sounds of those futuristic and gritty stories. As with a traditional film score, you may notice a few main musical themes that weave throughout the entirety of the album, each following the action and our imaginary main characters, from propulsive and dark to intimate personal moments. I hope listening to this album invites you on a neon-lit daydream to whatever worlds you can imagine.”
Limited edition release of 300 units on coloured vinyl, split between 'Blade Runner Blue' (150 units) or 'Godzilla Claw Cream' (150 units).
Colours reflect the recent movie projects composer Bryce Miller has contributed sound design & trailer music for (Blade Runner 2049 & Godzilla King of The Monsters)
