Apocalyptic Hamartia is, for now, just me, Jared Tardif. I make strange music, a mixture of classical influences with an ambient feeling.
In 1963, Apocalyptic Hamartia started in a garage in Goderich, Ontario. Back then, it was mostly a science project. Phil Morrison and James Sudd used to electrocute ants with small charges of static, in an attempt to create what they termed "hyper-dorian virtual fallacy." It was only a matter of time before they thought of ice cream as a sound barrier, and by then, they had reached critical development stage with the ants. The fallacy had grown, and the tonal variance with it, until only a Marshall amp and a few splitters and cables could save the day. All at once, the tentative solution became clear: stop thousand crawl telephone. This secondary project lasted for decades, a juggernaut of ideas that invariably went nowhere. Ongoing and unstoppable, it will continue into the future to result in what I like to call "sensible lucid perfection," or SLP. We await that day. Um, eagerly.
I have played live once so far, at a coffee house.
Bach. Tchaikovsky. Yes. Rush. Enya. Opeth. Elfman. Rosetta. Ambient, atmospheric, soundtrack, classical
My recording process is primitive. Anything I can get my hands on, which at the moment is a computer, a digital piano, a line-out cord, and a cheap mixing program.
Drop me a comment!
