Phrygia creates diverse sonic atmospheres that spark creative thought, enabling the listener to further their efforts through aural stimulation. Within the music, we wish to propel you to another dimension of sound and thought, where worlds collide in a very abstract yet friendly atmosphere of knowledge and sensibility.
Why this name?
Phrygia = God of Chaos, or the dissonant Phrygian scale, usually denoting chaos. The ancient Phrygian land was historically chronicled as being the place where slaves were found. Upon that premise, we wish to dispel that notion and continue with the original allegory of disturbance and collision.
Do you play live?
Actually, we have a few times. We are more of an enigmatic vestige than an upfront performing troupe. All music is programmed note for note, with the addition of analog drums and guitar throughout.
How, do you think, does the internet (or mp3) change the music industry?
The internet and mp3 format has allowed virtually anyone to express themselves. The future is now. We ride this wave with full abandon and wish you to experience Phrygia only in the domain we initially swore to - everything we present is free.
Would you sign a record contract with a major label?
Of course. All music is available for licensing, and we have a few contracts under our belt.
Phrygia formed in October 2000. There is nothing of import regarding why we formed, we simply want to make music that at least someone across the globe can enjoy. If we touch just one person, we did our job.
