    New Sounds
  • Dramatic Works

    Listen to music from Wires Under Tension, a NYC-based band formed by multi-instrumentalist/composer Christopher Tignor and drummer Theo Metz.  Their latest creation is called “Replicant, ” and is, yes(!) inspired by Philip K Dick's “Do Androids Dream of Electric Sheep?”, along with the film adaptation, “Blade Runner.”  According to the album’s site, “‘Replicant’ takes on the questions of mechanized identity, the feeling of flawed copies, and the inescapable bummer of being too self-aware.”  The music is layer after tasty layer of impossible sounds created by synth, swirls, drum licks, offered up all together as post-rock with grooves.
