The Tin Box
Tucker Sferro is a Brooklyn-based composer and performer who began his career playing trumpet in live jazz ensembles, moving on to guitar, bass, and electronic music production with various bands throughout the Northeastern US in the late 90s and 2000s. He is known for blending rich and complex synth melodies with layered percussion, cultivating an innovative organic sound through assorted digital processes. Tucker is fascinated with mathematical models of probability and weaves a large component of chance into his compositions and live sets to create music that is constantly evolving.
Invisible Kin guides the listener on an expedition into the psyche in which successive layers of identity are peeled back to reveal a pantheon of archetypal themes. Spacious ambient backdrops, hypnotic swirling melodies, and fracturing percussive rhythms provide a roadmap to the discovery of synergistic relationships between music and experience. The interplay of melodic architecture and decomposition is a constant theme throughout the album in which the nature of the identity of both the musical arrangements and the listener are explored.
