Sense ..Electronic emotional music.
Neural networks are formed when we allow ourselves to feel.
Sense is Adam Raisbeck, musician born on the 25th of June 1974,from Melbourne, Australia.
Since, purchasing his first synthesiser from the trading post in 1992 , the Roland JX-3P , adam started making sounds and music.
Acquiring next some drum machines Roland . TR series.. and then some more and even more synths . Roland, Korg, Kawai, Yamaha,Sequential Circuits.
Learning along the way the concepts and applications of computer and synth based music was and still is his way of life.Establishing himself under his Soulenoid alias early in 1995, Adam Raisbeck has performed live numerous times in his native city of Melbourne at Club Filter, Global Warming and the Punters Club as well as larger one-off parties like the Omniglobe raves, Technofest, The Big Day Out, Be Strange and Earthcore - along the way supporting international drawcards Derrick May, Stacey Pullen, the Aphex Twin, Biochip C,Bochum welt, Cylob , Speedfreak , Biochip C , STEEL,Monolake , Machinedrum, Dabrye , Tim koch , ComA , Sutekh and the On-U Sound posse and more . ...
Yet in spite of critical acclaim surrounding his performances and the music he's released through Melbourne's If? label and Belgium's Nova Zembla imprint, Adam Raisbeck remains as unfathomable and elusive as the day he began.
More recently Adam Raisbeck is searching out new directions in both sound and the technology he uses to make that music, as Sense, for labels as divserse as:
Born from the intense need to express itself , sense emerges from within.
Inside it the feelings the sounds the emotions the decisions the mechanism the thought. Outside it the pain the struggle the hurt the disapointment. Yet his sense is both of these things .. embracing each other .. and feeling what each other does, perfect and all knowing understanding, perfect unambiguous communication.
Adam's earlier work veers across a range of contemporary electronic flavours.
His older recordings of freestyle 'techno' - if you want to call it that - captures the spirit of his own development over the years as well as the style of contemporaries like Zen Paradox, Voiteck and Robert Hood.
His recent recordings as Sense are far more personal; Adam explains "When I'm actually making music I really try to express what I'm feeling. Maybe it's not conscious; maybe it's a totally unconscious thing, but I try to be open enough to give expression to that feeling and capture it. My ultimate goal is create an interface via my music whereby people listening to it will totally feel what's happening and understand what i was feeling at the time i was making the music ,it's something that is to me - beyond-sonic.
Adam Raisbeck's live electronic music experience is something that's both intangible and unpredictable; in in the mid to late Nineties he was one of the more consistent live performers in Melbourne.
