The Flashbulb has released a new album entitled Arboreal which contains 17 tracks of cinematic electronica. Pre-order Arboreal CDs are available now via the Psymbolic sound shop and digital album downloads will be active starting June 8th, 2010.
Benn Jordan, the man behind the project, combines real instruments and electronic programming to create rich soundscapes. His last album, Soundtrack to a Vacant Life, was a masterpiece covering many diverse genres including: IDM, post-rock, metal, and even flamenco.
The Flashbulb will be touring throughout the summer to support his new album, Arboreal. Performances will include live electronics created with computers, keyboards, various MIDI controllers, and a MIDI guitar complete with an immersive realtime visual show. For those interested in hosting the Arboreal tour, submit a booking request or simply contact Psymbolic.
The official video for the new song "Undiscovered Colors" is an astonishing orchestration of time-lapsed landscapes shot primarily in the badlands (Pine Ridge region) of South Dakota.
