Playing like a strange mix between the soundtrack of a David Lynch film and what would crawl into your mind after reading Neil Gaiman’s Sandman, Skeleton Trees music aims to become the soundscape of your dreams. Skeleton Trees is the brainchild of J. Bannon, Jean-David Brouillette and Alice Morrison, three Montreal artists interested in experimental and avant-garde music who also discovered they shared similar interests for multimedia, films and for psycho-acoustic experiments.

Playing like a strange mix between the soundtrack of a David Lynch film and what would crawl into your mind after reading Neil Gaiman’s Sandman, Skeleton Trees music aims to become the soundscape of your dreams. Skeleton Trees is the brainchild of J. Bannon, Jean-David Brouillette and Alice Morrison, three Montreal artists interested in experimental and avant-garde music who also discovered they shared similar interests for multimedia, films and for psycho-acoustic experiments. Even though the roots of Skeleton Trees started as far back as 2002, the actual lineup and concepts were only finalized in 2007, when the band found it voice with the addition of it lead singer; Alice Morrison. With her sensual French accent, Alice Morrison’s haunting vocals make her sounds like she could be Stereolab’s Laetitia Sadier’s dark sister, while at the same time sharing a few things in common with the Velvet Underground’s Nico. After more than 2 years of composing, testing and experimenting, Skeleton Trees finally released their first album, Season of Mists, in 2010. The sound of Skeleton Trees is primarily based on studio experimentations and the use of technology to create sonic landscapes. The music is created mostly around structures of repetitive patterns. It evolves through long and slow movements of ethereal beauty but at the same time often flirts with the sensibilities of alternative rock and electronica. One of the goals since the beginning was to merge the sounds of the 70s American avant-garde movement with the alternative sound of the 80s-90s.

Other influences range from the epic “conceptual” aspects of the progressive music scene to the ambient landscapes of electronic music. Season of Mists is inhabited by ethereal guitars, luscious violins, hypnotic drums, organ drones and ghostly vocals while the repetitive and hypnotic bass lines are reminiscent of The Cure’s album Faith with their omnipresence. Obvious echoes from gothic bands such as The Cure and Joy Division can be heard throughout the album but one might also recognize influences from avant-garde composers like Steve Reich and Philip Glass or even from bands as different as Portishead, Goldfrapp and Tangerine Dreams The first album is mostly about regrets, memories, the passage of time, getting older and realizing the there’s more time behind and less in front. It is an existential, atmospheric and melancholic piece of work. In the fall of 2012, a 2nd album, entitled Structure 24 – Opus 1, will be released on CD and on digital formats! This album marks a new creative direction for the band. Read more on Last.fm. User-contributed text is available under the Creative Commons By-SA License; additional terms may apply..
