Hipnautica, is the culmination of internal and external struggles, inner voices refined and what Sky calls devine passion since birth. A musician and visionary, Sky, started Hipnautica in 2006 after a near death experience. Sky was not new to Electronic music though, having been a founding member of the Austin Electronic music scene.
At a very young age, Sky started using hardware synths, keyboards, and computers like the Atari STe, back in the late 80s and was already on the radio by the time he was 17. In a town known for county and rockabilly it was a constant struggle to convince venues of what he believed would be coming and that the world would embrace computers, and technology in the future of music. From the first Casio he recognized the ghost within the machine. Today he loves to combine styles and marry both organic, acoustic and electronic elements to create his signature sound which is hypnotic and intoxicating to the soul. Today Sky is based in Portland Oregon and working on the album, Shadowedlands, the fourth and final puzzle piece to a quadratic series he started in 2010.
Sky writes, "Through organic synthesis, waveforms, and frequencies unattainable by traditional instruments new worlds could be explored internally, new pathways to higher levels of consciousness could be explored and magnified. "Real music" is music artists create from true inspiration, from the soul, and through discipline and experimentation we can refine that inspiration to present works that hopefully will inspire others.
The evolution of electronic music is constant and it's been a part of my soul for over 20 years, I'm constantly excited to explore new ideas, to fuse genres, to cross merge sound, to synthesize new sounds that transport people to inner realms. When people ask me what kind of music I write, I used to try and define it, but over the last few years. My answer is simple and based on my own personal spiritual and artistic evolution, "I write music". You may love some of it, you may hate some of it, but ultimately I simply have to create and I hope some of what I do will inspire you. Perhaps some of what I present will speak to you, either way, I simply have to create. It's my purpose, it's my reason, it's a part of my soul and I encourage people to explore this life, to travel inward and outward."
