makes experimental electronic music
J.R. Edwards, Breck McGough, and Santiago Ramones
Power Cycle is a trio of composers. They can encompass a variety of styles and genres, from intricately planned compositions to completely improvised otherworldly experiences. They each have a Master's degree in Music Composition from the University of Central of Oklahoma. They came together when Dr. L. Keith White decided to get his three graduate electroacoustic composers together, and they have been periodically mystifying the Jazz Lab since September of 2018 with their Electric Pizza concerts.
J.R. Edwards' main instrument is Cello, on which he has undergraduate and graduate degrees, but he also has a physics background. Breck McGough has a strong tenor voice (he's studied voice his entire college career) but is also proficient at piano and electronics. Santiago Ramones' undergrad is in Music Production, plays a bit of guitar and bass, and specializes in Ableton Live, although his primary instrument is voice (also a tenor).
TOO MANY DAMN CABLES
Too Many Damn Cables is an album of experimental electronic music made in the random moments of noodling, improvisation, and experimentation during Power Cycle rehearsals.
All that you hear on this album was not planned, but came about amid the chaos of Electric Pizza concert rehearsals, and was then put together as an album - a distillation of the coolest stuff that came from archived recordings.
