August 25 Summer 2012 update
Hey everybody! How's it going? We took a little break to hang out in the shade, listen to lots of new music, and get our energy renewed. We have a bunch of songs that we have been crafting and really want you to hear them! Melodies now need to be set to words and feelings and colors we envision reacting to the whole sound of the music will be evoked by guitars. In the meantime we have some tidbits that we cooked up on the side. Maybe one day we'll gather all of them for a main course, something like Aoeria's Jam Stew. Here's one from last Saturday, August 25th that you can have a mp3 of follow this link. Enjoy!
July & August Update
Here's some pictures from the mixing and mastering sessions for Praise to All You Hear. Both can be saved our view in full size, click either or right click and save as.
Here's a picture of the master tape recorder in action mixing & mastering Praise to All You Hear. We also did Waterwheel with it. There aren't many of these around, especially looking and sounding so pretty. We were lucky to have Kim Stallings from Sony Studios take care of it. Thanks Kim!
Here's one from when we mixed Praise to All You Hear. The device you see is a Mu-Tron Bi-Phase from the 70s, used to gently massage the sounds in a swirling array, much like the colors on the screen
And a special giveaway anniversary celebration!
It was two years ago today that Praise to All You Hear came out to play. We would like to say from us to you, thank you for all that you do. May the music rise to meet you, and to thine own self sky blue.
Here's a pic of the album with all the panels that go inside. We have two copies of the album with handwritten song titles and cover, email email@example.com if you'd like one. Thanks for listing to Aoeria!!! Frank
July 13, '12 New Interview
Here's an interview we did with Vents Magazine a few months before the one we posted from ProjectFresh. It has info about the idea of the band, our musicial inspirations, funny hypothetical questions, and a few new pics. Enjoy!
July 2, '12 New Album Update:
The new album is coming along nicely, the sounds will be familiar and new. The mix of the thick guitars, driving drums, stretched bass strings, and intertwining melodies is in full swing. Now the sonics have been a bit expanded, there are new instruments never used on aoeria songs before. Percussion like shakers and tambourines sprinkle the rhythms, organs swirl between the speakers, and acoustic guitars mesh with fuzz guitars in a tight weave. Can't wait to share the sounds with everyone.
June '12, new interview!
Read Aoeria's interview with ProjectFresh, the first I've done about the band!
Also check out our facebook page for more pictures. You can see the collection of artifacts I made into the album cover for Waterwheel and my latest guitar, a Gibson Es-339, which I used on the new album for some really soaring parts.
News: October 16th, 2011
Hey everyone! Frank from Aoeria here, I'm the songwriter, singer, guitarist and Toby Bruzik is our drummer. I'd like to personally thank you from checking Aoeria out, it's incredible to share original music directly with people who care, so thank you for being a part of this! I am recording new songs which I can't wait to play for you. We are also looking for a bassist, so if you play or know anyone and are interested email us at firstname.lastname@example.org I've added the photo montage videos from Praise to All You Hear's DVD to youtube which you can watch on our channel at youtube.com/aoeria. Also the full version of Waterwheel is on Youtube now (*though take it as a impression of the real thing, nothing compares to the sound and look of the real cd/dvd- please read our note below)
a note on Aoeria's creations: You'll never find a upc directly on aoeria's album artwork, or copyright information, because it is not part of the work and experience being presented. a painter doesn't say every minute detail about his work right on it, only the essentials that we would like to have to share the expression we are trying to create. I like to read some details about what I'm listening to, mainly who is playing and maybe where it was made, who was involved, or some of the inspirations. The rest is up to the music. Our videos are an extensions of the artwork created for the album. The music is not contained only on a cd or mp3, it exists as a work on many formats, between the formats, because if had another medium of expression there would be even more to see and hear. For now dvds are the best option we have for presented our songs and images cohesively, so we recommend this for the purest experience to what we created. Thank you for listening to aoeria and enjoy! ~Frank
