The Present Moment means a real sense of adventure towards music and a fair degree of passion for singular, creative and fugitive shared moments, against any procrastination. Based in Los Angeles, Scott Milton, who already making use of original and advanced musical ideas on the two bands Catalog and Moodorgan, is now expressing his very own stylistic-musical universe under the name of The Present Moment. The Present Moment achieves a stunning hybridation and an infectious blend of dense cold-wave's electro grroves, cyclical droning interferences, vigorous epid industrialism, dolorous nocturne-goth weirdness superbly sustained by a seductive eighties flavor. Ritualistic in nature, the whole musical trip offers a dark, delightful and rather unique breathtaking atmoshpere, sometimes revealing enthralling lysergic electro-ambiences. The Present Moment is situated in an in-between and non stabilized musical region which authorizes astonishing connections.
This new record is a collaborative effort between Scott Milton and Philipp Muench of the Rorschach Garden. It explores a relatively similar dynamic pop territory, still opened to new musical tendencies and new sonorities without loosing cohesion. Consequently this last effort promises a completely mesmeric musical odysse made of eerie drones, addictive electro moves, propulsive batcave bass lines and captivating plaintive-melodic sections with culminate into a sort of ecstatic consuming reverie. Scott Milton's rich sense of composition gives the arrangements a radical and unique feel, somewhere between the narcoleptic twist of The Sisters Of Mercy, the regular addictive density of Front 242 and the touching goth-dramatic sense of Colin Newman or Asylum Party. This new effort explores the sonic realms of kinetic electro-pop music. A pretty personal matured sound signature which will certainly provoke visceral, exceptional effects on the revival of the electro-cold wave pop movement. The Concept behind this new album illustrates purely passionate, re-creative aspects of man's intimate nature: muted sorrow, tragedies of communication, the natural tension between loss and presence, renewal love. Prepare ypurself for this transgressive, post-romantic electro adventure.
This year, Scott Mitlon's live band played with a handful of notorious figures of the synth-minimal cold wave circle such as Light Asylum, Salem, Gatekeeper, Iron Curtain, Legendary Pink Dots, Soft Metals just to name a few...
