Avmus is the audio/visual work of CT native, John C. Miller. For the past 15 years Miller has been creating a sense of a distant planet where Avmus serves as the soundtrack. The 1950’s film, ideology, and early electronic music influence the audio and visuals of Avmus.
The music is created on guitar, synth, and violin that is sampled, tweaked, re-sampled and possibly tweaked once or twice more only to be re-sampled several more times using an old 4-track and Ableton Live. The process is as important as the product. A genre that Avmus fits in is hard to find, but for a generic label, electronic will suffice. Think Add N to (X) meets Tom Dissevelt and Kid Baltan’s “The Fascinating World of Electronic Music” with a strong influence of Caribou.
“…a joyfully psychedelic listen, perfectly suited for solo space expeditions without leaving the comfort of your chair and high-end, isolating headphones.” – Paul Belbusti, No Nutmeg
