Biography

Skiye’s music is unique and birthed from his many various influences over the years. You can hear these many influences throughout his compositions. Most of the music written by Skiye is idiosyncratic and/or atonal and follows no predetermined structure or style. His music is also known for shifting genres within a single song, often more than once or blending genres together. Skiye either plays or programs all of the instruments heard on his tracks; as well as mixes and masters them. His songs are produced “by the noise in his head” and are written in full before they ever become audible to someone else. Skiye was a recipient of the Louis Armstrong Award in 1999/2000 as a senior in high school for his multi-instrumental and conducting/composing abilities.

While those abilities have evolved over the years the music has too. The first album “The Spaces Between Words” is a lo-fi collection of works from Skiye’s early years (a lot of which predates the aforementioned award). Mostly recorded with “livingroom technology” from ages 14 and up, this album maintains a progressive rock/jazz style for the most part and was actually meant to be only 4 songs. Tracks 1-3 are one song, tracks 4-5 are one song and tracks 6-7 are one song - the fourth song was omitted and replaced with other various recordings from his younger years up until the year that was released to the public. And tracks 4-5 and 6-7 were originally both preceded by other songs which were completely omitted due to their terrible sound quality - and Skiye’s frustration.

    Hey Skiye, thank you for dropping by at coolwindchris and listening to the Lyrical Sonata. I hope you liked it. Why not try Tango Elena. I'm sure she would appreciate it! Chris

    Some of the instruments sound stock, but the melodies are incredible. Get better sounding stuff and you're golden.

    My pleasure to check out your sounds. Thanx for playing. I'll be checking out more of your music soon, God willing. I found you via Mahavishnu Orchestra cos i RESPECT John Mclaughlin soooooooooo much, and jeanluc Ponty, jan Hammer etc but its that Guitar i love. I'm eventually gonna put down some trax once i work out all the midi in/out stuff and have got enough cables/leads and whatnot. A thousand blessings to you. Greg
