For years, Joseph Gergis composed and produced individual songs, but in 2008 he released his first album, ‘The Darker Light’. A simple bass synthesizer loop expanded into sonic landscapes of electronic and acoustic music. Violin and synthesizers intertwined at the crossroads of ambient and techno with the power of Propellerhead’s Reason software and his own violin. The album was part of Record Producing Month (RPM), the music world’s answer to NaNoWriMo: complete an album during the month of February with at least 10 songs or 35 minutes.
In the wake of that crucible, the production process matured into 2010’s ‘The Passage to Eternity.’ ‘Passage’ utilizes the orchestra to its full potential around the synthesizer with tighter production quality and a narrower focus of flow. Its 7th track, ’The View To Eternity’, was featured on the French compilation album, Radio Equinoxe 3.0.
In February 2014, after a four year hiatus, Joseph produced ‘Gateway’ for RPM. This evolutionary shift in Joseph’s career is an invitation to embark on a single, 40-minute sonic journey, pared down into small explorations. This departure from the more orchestrated prior works utilizes synthesis and minimal soundscape to give birth to dark, ambient textures.
Joseph Gergis currently resides in Cincinnati, Ohio.
