Transference is a new modern day Psychedelic incarnation that features a core musical unit and features guest vocalists from all around the world. To put it simply Transference takes a musical fusion of Pink Floyd meets Tangerine Dream approach to the song writing and production style and delivers it with the pomp and ceremony of a Rick Wakeman theatrical spectacular.
Presenting "Transference" a journey into the unknown and with no two performances the same, the level of unpredictability of the players and their collective presentation of the music to the audience is always a welcome surprise. Like transcendental meditation, the music performed is a transition between two worlds. “Our Reality" and the "Alternate Reality" that we all visit in our nightly dream state. Dare to dream, dare to cast off the shackles of normality, stand up and say No.... these are some of the premises visited during a Transference" performance experience. As Aldus Huxley so aptly put it, unadulterated awareness opens the doors to perception and creates points of inception where the listener’s senses are heightened and brought to a complete climax. With the inclusion of specialist lighting, bubble machines, strobe lighting and back projection, "Transference" creates the total visual experience. Coupled with our latest 3D animated video produced by Ben Wheatley which is currently being featured on RAGE, the band intends to raise performance art to a whole new level. Imagine a giant red ant savaging the remnants of Stonehenge and then being beamed into space to forever orbit the surrounding planets of our solar system.
The band feature a wide array of talents and performance experience to create a well rounded and highly engaging musical carousel of carnival sounds, psychedelic visuals and a deeper penetration into the psyche for those searching for more. To say this band is just experimental is too naïve. As strange as the set up seems to be, each element of the performance is meticulously planned to ensure that while there is cohesion, the mileposts offered are only designed as reference points to allow the band the free form expression they need without being over indulgent.
The core band consists of Michael Puskas (all guitars), Julian Reid (bass and lead vocals), Georgia Harris (lead vox & tambourine), Kata Ruszic (lead vocals), Loughlin Harrick (drums), Steven Harris (piano, keyboards and vocals) and is further enhanced on stage by guest musicians Chris Scheri (flute and vocals) and Dominic Butcher (guitars and vocals). In order to test the water the band signed a straight single release deal with, “Out of the Box” Records / Sony Music (USA) and the first single, “Witching Stones” was well received at both FM and internet radio garnering a small global following that has been further capitalised on via the social networking platforms of Facebook (5,800), Twitter (2,347), Reverbnation (4,247) etc The digital version of “Skywatchers” was released to critical acclaim in November 2012 and continues to do well today.
The video concepts are designed around presenting a psychedelic experience similar to that of “Pink Floyd” and feature dynamic artistry, stop motion animation, sand painting and other dynamic conceptual art to really help the band stand out and “rise above the noise”. With tracks like Transference, Eloquence and Winged Serpent already enjoying good You Tube coverage of over 200,000 views collectively and the Jango radio page has been slowly building a strong fan base of over 1000+ the band are set to take their unique brand of iconic music with that all important modern edge to new heights. The band have been offered many touring opportunities in both Asia and Israel as well as cruise ships but have decided to hold off on the international front till early 2015.
