Flaud Logic originated in Brooklyn, New York in 2008. Originally an attempt to demo some song ideas composer Michael Kaplan had written over the years, it gradually evolved into a full-length album featuring performances from a cadre of talented musicians including Michael Romeo (guitar), Frank Wyatt (saxophone), Joe Bergamini (drums), and Benny Lackner (Rhodes). Over a period of months, Michael composed and arranged these musical ideas into what would become the album's core: Four tracks-one, a 23-minute epic-that take the listener through a variety of soundscapes and stories. The Flaud Logic sound can best be described as progressive rock, a genre true to Michael's love of sonic experimentation. The album spans a range of styles and moods-from elation to sorrow-painted by careful instrumentation and vivid lyrics. Moments of bone-crushing metal, the clockwork intricacy of mathcore, and retro Beatles-era rock, meet soaring and uplifting passages and catchy hooks.
