Editorial Reviews

2008 debut release from the electronic music duo Trifonic. Brian Trifon and his brother Laurence masterfully blend manipulated ambient sounds and unique synths with live guitars, strings and other instruments to create a cinematic, emotional musical experience. Drawing inspiration from downtempo electronica, IDM, post rock and classical music, Trifonic has managed to craft a richly layered sound distinctly its own. From epic instrumentals like "Parks On Fire," to the ethereal wall-of-sound "Transgenic," to seductive vocal collaborations with Amelia June ("Broken," "Lies") and Christina Courtin ("Sooner Or Later"), Emergence is as uplifting as it is melancholy. Inviting, warm and intricate, this is a record sure to move you with each repeated listen.

Intense, emotional and simply addictive - I'm listening to this album in the car, on the couch and at work. I'll also use it in the cool-down part of my fitness classes. I can't throw out professional music terms - but I can say that the sound effects are stunning, the instrumental & vocal parts pure & beautiful, and goosebumps not a rarity. Highly recommended!

Because I don't really possess a musical vocabulary, I have to stick with what I know to describe this album: It's a joint (translation: pick it up and put it on repeat). I'm so tried of the typical pop / rap / mainstream radio play and Emergence is welcome shift from the norm. As a hip-hop head, it's opened me up to a whole new sound. "Infiltration" speaks to what I know best by blending a driving, edgy beat with an esoteric, shifty melody. It's the kind of song that could support a vocal but is compelling enough to stand on its own. The vocals on "Lies" and "Broken" are unbelievable; the vocalist's sound reminds me of something between Dido or Bjork (without all the weird rage). I also love "Parks on Fire" because the music has an arch and the composition tells a story. Final analysis: the album combines a range of sonic and melodic nuances that make it both perfect for "mood" listening and so compelling that every few minutes it makes you stop, sit up, and groove.

Emergence is a beautifully crafted work from brothers Laurence and Brian. It brings together micro-edited glitcy beats, immersive atmospheres, sweet guitar playing and interesting harmonic material into a surprisingly cohesive whole. Elements of pop here and there draw the listener in deeper for greater rewards. Vocals on a few tracks provide a nice point of focus while still leaving space for the gorgeous sonics. "Terminal A" and "Terminal B" are some of the best contenders for defining 21st Century Dub as can be imagined. A brilliant work - highly recommended!

Typically, even with music I really like, I get tired of it relatively fast, and just set my library to shuffle again. Not with this album. I keep coming back to it, even though originally I had mainly purchased it for Lies, which I had heard on Pandora.com. Emergence is a great intro, giving a little sample of most the album has to offer, minus the vocals. Parks on Fire is a brilliant track, with another favorite producer of mine, Hybrid, agreeing with his remix in Soundsystem 01. It has a nice balance of glitchy guitars that seem to be less plucked and more synthetically initiated, with a balance of percussion and synthesizer. I still have to say my favorite is Lies. Initially you end up listening to the lyrics, but if you simply focus on those, you miss a lot more of the music (this can be said for a great deal of the tracks). It took me many times listening to even hear the simple, gruff guitar riff in the background, and I'm sure there's still more for me to discover on this wonderful album.

I see this as a rather unique combination of the two...definitely recommended. Listen with a sub or headphones, or you miss the massive, eerie low end.

........Techno.......European........very melodic with the coolest percussion rifts. If this is what you're looking for, then this is a classic. Had to add it.

I love music with ambient, some dub step as well as classical instruments. Combine them all and you get Trifonic. Very moving, emotional, soft with a touch of beats.

Has a few stellar songs and a few decent songs the rest isn't bad but not memorable. If you have heard some of the songs and like this style of music I don't think you will regret buying the whole album but I don't think it's anything to write home about.
