PSYCH ARMY INTERGALACTIC IS SET TO RELEASE CHRIS HUNT'S TOMB EP MARCH 4TH.
Chris Hunt is an Atlanta-based producer focused on the texture and atmosphere of sound. Following the dissolution of his band Cloudeater, where he was one of the chief producers and driving aesthetic forces, Hunt began focusing on a new personal and intense sonic project. Years of writing and experimentation have produced Tomb and Tomb II, 2 “solo” EPs. Tomb was produced in collaboration with vocalist Marshall Ruffin, guitarist Emil Werstler, and bassist/engineer John Davis.
Recorded between Atlanta and New York, Tomb was assembled using an array of traditional drums, classic synthesizers and tape machines ultimately to be pulled apart and rebuilt with layers of dense digital manipulation and analog distortions. Whereas Tomb features collaborators and more standard instrumentation and vocals, Tomb II pushes the layering and reconstruction techniques further in a completely solo pursuit of Hunt’s distinct emotional aesthetic.
Armed with harsh noise and lush cinematic textures melded with emotive passages, Tomb and Tomb II were developed in a timeline marked by a tree crushing a house, grueling heartbreak and the death of Hunt's sister. The projects draw all of these experiences together in a cataclysm of sound and collapse.
