Biography

Highly cinematic ambient world spacerock fusion.

Systems Theory is a multi-national internet music project creating adventurous music best described using the terms cinematic-progressive, cinematic-ethnic, cinematic-spacerock, cinematic-electronic, cinematic-ambient, cinematic-soundscape, cinematic-fusion. The compositions run the gamut from dark ambient drift to worldprog-fusion to full-throttle aggressive spacerock, many of which are colored by the rich organic sounds of the Mellotron M400, Hammond T500 and other old analog keyboards.

All tunes are written by the core trio of Greg Amov, Steven Davies-Morris and Mike Dickson. The project currently has two albums available, the 2004 release “Soundtracks For Imaginary Movies” and the 2007 release “Codetalkers”. Guests appearing on the albums include Diane Amov (flute), Cyndee Lee Rule (violin), Michael Futreal (dulcimer), Brian Daly (electric guitar), Dun Strummin (electric guitar), Paul Beecham (bass guitar), Antonia Naylor-Ostler (child vocal and laughter) and Cosworth the cat (odd electric piano popping noises that came over the echoplex). Two early evaluation (demos) albums from 2000 and 2002 are floating around on the internet. These will be cleaned up and released properly sometime in 2008/2009 with the addition of some unreleased tracks.

Why did we name ourselves “Systems Theory”? We’re all computer programmers by trade, and it seemed to reflect that which puts food on the table, clothes the kiddies and pays the mortgage, while stretching beyond the borders of science and technology into other areas and systems-driven disciplines.

    We canned the torrent. It didn't ever reach a large enough critical mass to warrant keeping it live. We'll try again when the next CD is deployed ("overfulnoisecascade").

    We have now setup a torrent for delivering the Codetalkers disk image and the artwork. You'll need a BitTorrent aware client to participate in the P2P pool. The tracker is at 207.178.174.2:6969
