Threat Machine is experimental electronic music composer George Spanos. The Canadian musician weaves together a captivating blend of sounds that form a distinct voice for his music. Spanos has worked as a professional sound designer and audio director in the video game industry for over 12 years. His work includes Bioshock 2 and most recently the highly acclaimed Warframe, for which he has also been credited with a number of music compositions. This has equipped him with a unique ability to blur the lines between real-world sounds and ones that are pulled from within the depths of his subconscious. That fusion is on display on his latest release, 2018’s Echoes of a Butterfly. Spanos is also a co-host on War With Art, a weekly podcast that explores the many battles artists go through to practice their art.
That fusion is on display in his upcoming 2018 release ‘Echoes of a Butterfly’. Cinematic and evocative, it weaves together sonic elements of ambient, electronic, glitch, drone, and experimental music. Synth melodies, roughly recorded acoustic guitar, other-worldly choirs, undulating electronic drones and chopped up rhythmic elements all coalesce together to form a unique listening experience. The central idea behind the album is a tale of life and death… a journey through the human condition that has a very unlikely ending.
‘Echoes of a Butterfly’ will be released November 30th, 2018.
