Chris & Frédéric
Deep in the bass continuum.
A place where time and space were merely words.
There were two.
Men, or machines?
Does it matter?
Frequency shifting, transposing the very fabric of existence, the Scribes were sent to earth with one purpose: to steal music and eventually afford Heineken.
On a less serious note, the Scribes are production junkies. With over 10 years of combined production experience, they are just better than most of you out there. "No really we are the shit". (that was Fred, he is a bit drunk).
When the Scribes are not deep in the mountains of Mont Royal concocting mind bending sounds, examining rocks and other interesting objects, they enjoy meeting the town folk, eating exotic raw fish, and attempting to imitate John Travolta from Grease.
We are Sub Scribes, we have DAWs, and we know how to use them. Oh and Fred knows how to EQ.
Chris Gooding hails from the U.K. and currently resides in Montreal, Quebec. Influenced by the likes of Amon Tobin, Goldie, BTK, Noisia, The Upbeats, Flume, Dusky, and ASA, Chris has evolved musically from year to year, transcending various genres in search of a sound to call his own. His solo act Goodingfluence has brought attention to his unconventional approach to composition, never an imitator, constantly looking for ways to make his music stand out.
Born in Montreal, Frédéric Messier has a rich multi-instrumental musical background, ranging from guitar and piano to drums, he is the current head sound engineer and producer at Silver Stag Studio. Frédéric lives and breathes music, always seeking to push the limits of sound design and creative use of modern technology. Influenced by the likes of John Hopkins, Aphex Twin, Jamie XX, Daft Punk, Alix Perez, and the Upbeats, Frédéric cannot stand being placed in a box, considering himself more of a juxtaposition between the digital and analog spheres of sound.
Disinterested by the restrictions that genre labels come with, the Scribes are currently working on a full length LP, with heavy emphasis on dark, moody and melodic reese baselines as well as malevolent drum sequences.
