Ego and the Ids is a musical project: It is a collaboration by musicians who wish to communicate something beautiful and huge with sound while exploiting music's ability to make people feel something they can relate to. It is about evoking mental images of life, death and everything in between, always taking the time to show the grandeur of the human experience. Who do Ego and the Ids listen to? Cocteau Twins, Dead Can Dance, Stoa, James, Concrete Blonde, Leonard Cohen, Human Drama, The Clan of Xymox, The Misfits, The Swans, This Mortal Coil, Cranberries, Sisters of Mercy, NIN, The Cult, Joy Division, Fields Of The Nephilim, The Cure, Velvet Underground, Elliot Smith, Pink Floyd, U2, Marillion, Porcupine Tree, etc... Ego and the Ids is like real life, and real chocolate. It is simultaneously bitter and sweet. It is uplifting and tragic at the same time. We view music as an alchemical process. Simply put, our music is orchestral, melodic, and experimental. We hope you enjoy it.
