The Book of Shardtron, is a sonic novel about a dark and enchanting crystalline world, featuring beats of underground artists and producers.
The Shardtronian world is as dangerous and dark as it is decadent and glittering. A combination of the organically faceted and the unnaturally angular. it is a place of beauty, the ancient and the advanced morphing into one another, never quite separating but never really fully in sync either. We the Shardtron collective are attempting to capture this struggle piece by piece.
Chapter 3 was produced/ composed by REMINGTON (Remington Messinger). "I wanted to create this visual of something beautiful yet ominous." says REMINGTON. "The name of my chapter seemed so lovely, but i thought of the idea of how in nature, beauty can also be deadly. My intention for this track was to explore this concept through heavy synths and reverbs, taking drums and droning them into these atmospheric sounds, yet concreting them with a distinct verse to chorus musical format. The result of playing with plug ins and midi controllers for this production, brought about this intense yet melancholic piece; similar to a love song."
REMINGTON recently released his first EP in February titled, Summon Birds EP, along with recent remixes for both MNDR and Paloma Faith. A Colorado native, REMINGTON first began making music at the age of 14. He attended The School of The Art Institute of Chicago, 2007-20012, where he focused on Sound design and Fashion design. He is currently working on his next project that he hopes to release by the end of summer of 2013.
