Clocks & Clouds’ Single ‘Aliantha’ Bridges Classical and Dubstep
July 16, 2014 (Minneapolis, MN) – Skrillex and Mozart seem like an unlikely pairing, but not for the instrumental band Clocks & Clouds. Known for combining classical instrumentation with rock aesthetics on albums “Life Beyond Reason” (2011) and “The Creation of Matter” (2012), Clocks & Clouds throws dubstep in the production mix with new single ‘Aliantha.’
Clocks & Clouds is a Minneapolis, MN based instrumental band that has had a knack for creating epic songs with a minimal line-up. Consisting of Stephanie Shogren (violin), Lucas Shogren (cello), and Derek Powers (drums), Clocks & Clouds has garnered praise for their energetic performances around the country.
Explaining the motives behind ‘Aliantha,’ Lucas Shogren says, “The idea of combining a violin that was built in 1737 with sounds that can only be created inside of a computer seemed very intriguing to us as a band. We wanted to see if this style of music reached a different audience and, so far, we are really excited from the response we’ve received.”
On top of their active performance engagements, they have travelled around the country promoting the importance of music education to students and teachers alike.
“We want to help kids rock out whether they are playing a Beatles cover or a Beethoven symphony.”
While most of their time is dedicated to performance and education, Clocks & Clouds manages to push their sound further into bold, unknown territories. With ‘Aliantha’ quickly becoming a crowd favorite at recent performances, you can expect Clocks & Clouds to continue finding new ways to experiment with their unique sound.
You can purchase Aliantha, and all the other Clocks & Clouds recordings on iTunes, as well as many other outlets.
