Portland based Coloring Electric Like combines the heavily effected guitar of shoegaze rock with synth driven sounds and beats from triphop and industrial influences. Layers of guitar and multiple drum and synth loops have drive and edge, while a backdrop of lush synth and strings is sublimely orchestral. The result is a sonic landscape, with provocative female vocals. The duo produces a sound that is surprisingly big, with a haunting feel and danceable groove.
Benjamin Bowman hails from Indianapolis, and came to Portland for the purpose of carving out his musical sound. Mia Chemello had been in several Portland bands, but was always searching for “that sound”…..Bowman and Chemello met musically prior to meeting in person….by writing, recording, file swapping, and mixing what became their first joint effort, the song Bleed it Out. Subsequently meeting and working together made them realize they had both found their othermusical half. They have been working on writing and recording what has become a catalog of the sound of Coloring Electric like since 2010. They are currently working on their upcoming debut EP.
Misled Bayonets is the free form post-rock brain child and collaborative recording project led by Portland OR, based deaf musician Myles de Bastion who also is the founder and Director of CymaSpace.
Cherishing spontaneity & live performance recordings, many Misled Bayonets releases take the form of intimate & oft-improvised single-take sessions. Misled Bayonets adopts an unorthodox approach to song-writing and performing by collaborating and recording in parallel with a rotating roster of local musicians and vocalists.
Guitar: Myles de Bastion
