We observe this field of energy with awe, reverence and perplexity.
Its gravity is heavy.
It seems to pull us towards itself.
This energy field is why The Surrealist exists.
Every song we release is an attempt to address deeper levels of this field.
To uncover its origin.
To uncover its reason for being.
To uncover its infinite creative potential.
To uncover the fundamental driving force behind all things.
It is the only thing that ultimately matters.
Ever since the birth of The Surrealist in 2016, the world has been taken aback by their pioneering approach to music and innovative guitar playing. Born in the college town of Boston, Massachusetts. The project is composed of guitarist Roopam Garg and sound designer Austin Rockman. Their two minds serendipitously merged upon graduating from Berklee College of Music.
The Surrealist seamlessly combines two diametric worlds — the world of real, organic sounds of the guitar with the world of abstract, ambient, electronic soundscapes. The marriage of these two worlds produces something intensely unspeakable and seeps deeply into the cracks of human emotion.
Painting upon the vast canvas of silence, The Surrealist uses colors from several influences to craft their sonic masterpieces — metal, minimalism, ambient music, electronic music, classical music and much more.
