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.

I think I expected something different because the first song I heard from the cd was Lies. I guess I thought more of the songs would be singable, and I was a little disappointed that they weren't. For the type of music it is - electronic, trance, new age-type stuff. I give it four stars because I do very much enjoy listening to it, but it's not really all-purpose music.

Best songs for me are Lies, Parks on Fire, and Good Enough, the last song on the cd.

Its a shame that the justin beebs are getting more recognition that bands like this one. Really top notch composing and musical abilities. Tons of emotion. This is up around my favorites like arcade fires 'funeral' and muses 'absolution'. The styles arent the same but the overall solid expertise and time put into them are.

10/10

The album consists of beautiful melodies with just the right beats. The vocals by Amelia June (I did my research) are better than 95% of pop stars in the main stream music industry. Trifonic is an independent group that needs recognition for its talent. Listen to the samples and buy this album. You will get more than your money's worth.
