Silver & Blue
Silver and Blue: is a collection of choreography music for Machina Candeo Fire Performance Company. The album was completely composed, produced and performed by Ty Cy-Phy (the company's creative director). The music is as dramatic and diverse as Machina Candeo's live shows. Fire and Dance are the themes of both the live performances and the recording of Silver and Blue. From lush ambiences, beautiful soundscapes, funky beats and mechanically jarring music; an incredibly original recording was created. The recording is a mixture of live instruments blended with technology. Musically each song is different. Persian, Asian, jazz, rock, African, techno and industrial influences are present through ought the 17 music tracks. The album is divided into two movements Silver (more uplifting music with a hint of darkness) and Blue( darker music with hints of beauty).
