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.

5.0 out of 5 stars Can't stop listening! February 29, 2008
A Kid's Review
Format:Audio CD
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!

5.0 out of 5 stars Found my groove March 22, 2008
Format:Audio CD
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!

5.0 out of 5 stars Can't stop listening February 9, 2009
Format:Audio CD
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.

5.0 out of 5 stars A little Orb, a little Burial November 22, 2008
Format:MP3 Music
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.

5.0 out of 5 stars The best of of things I love in music February 2, 2014
Format:MP3 Music|Verified Purchase
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.

3.0 out of 5 stars Average album January 23, 2014
Format:MP3 Music|Verified Purchase
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.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great album
Wow, what a great album. I'd call it a mix of trance/ambient with some 'light dubstep'. Pretty consistent throughout the whole album though i tend to like the tracks with vocals. Read more

5.0 out of 5 stars Pure Bliss
I found this by accident a couple of years ago, and I'm still loving it. If you're into eletronica, then this should be a staple on your playlist.

5.0 out of 5 stars Vocals are fabulous
Although this first album is a superb example of the power of electronic music to move the soul, the 2 vocals by Amelia Spooner add a unique and lyric flavoring to the mix.

This album has been stuck in my media player while I work for the last week on repeat. I'm also thinking it'd be great to jam to while putting some mileage on the bike. Read more
