“Something to needle over” was crafted from over a year of writing, rehearsing, and improvisational jamming. Ontologics consists of: Ian C. is a singer/songwriter and multi-instrumentalist, approaching song writing from unconventional and experimental sonic mediums. Many of the songs stem from a barrage of electronica, melodic prose, and other various forms of string and percussive instrumentation and sampling. After numerous arrangements and sequencing, the songs are then jammed in a live setting, and the process repeats itself in a circulating pattern, for however long it makes sense. Matt Walshe's approach to drumming incorporates a colorful palette of progressive influences, and fusion of genres.
No stranger to Jazz studies, Walshe has provided instructional lessons for intermediate drummers, and applied his notating skills to the Ontologics drum heavy pulse. Walshe brings his orchestral precision and counter punctual percussive power to complex time signatures, dual drum arrangements, and hip hop grooves.
