About the Artists:

Futuregrapher: Árni Grétar, best known under the pseudonym Futuregrapher, is an electronic musician and has in the past decade made consistent contributions to Iceland’s music scene, ranging from unbound ambient music to accelerating techno and beyond. He founded the record label Möller Records in 2011 with Jóhann Ómarsson (aka skurken). His sound can be described as ambient techno, but he is also known for making acid, drum & bass and ambient. Most notable works are his critical acclaimed albums Hrafnagil and Eitt (his collaboration with pianist and composer Jón Ólafsson).”

Eric “the” Taylor: “the” Taylor began his career as a drummer in the alternative music scene of Upstate NY in the early ‘90’s. Electronic drums began to offer him the ability to write and compose melodies and he began to use synthesizers and formulating recording studio techniques to begin creating his own body of Modern Composition. “the” Taylor began commuting to Woodstock NY, where he studied technique and music theory under percussionist Jerry Marotta (Peter Gabriel, Robert Fripp …) and Synthesist Rupert Greenall (The Fixx). Together these three artists began the progressive Ambient outfit The Fragile Fate, whose debut release, LILLIAM OCEAN ( Carpe Sonum Records), continues to chart internationally. “the” Taylor has also worked with Mick Chillage Gainford, Simon Matthews and Joe Locke among others.”
