Loose Canons 2​.​0

"Loose Canons 2.0 is an epic soundtrack of imaginary video game music and sounds as composed for the Micromoog synthesizer and arranged into ten separate tableaux. For the 8-bit soul in all of us.

Loose Canons 2.0 is the culmination of years of melodic electronic synthesizer experiments by multi-instrumentalist/composer Steven Jaime Giacomelli, whose dual abstract and hook-laden sensibilities were on display in multiple bands in the Gainesville FL underground music scene in the early 2000’s. Chief among these was The Ohm, an instrumental four-piece with a varied m.o. of instant composition, epic noisepop psychfuzz and atmospheric environment enhancement.

A series of underground self-releases yielded new projects, new bands and new contexts, with Giacomelli stretching compositionally into classic American song forms, from doo-wop to metal to orchestral pop to country to surf rock to soul to baroque pop to hip-hop to americana to spoken word soundtrack to blues to ambient, all the while honing theoretical melodic approaches and atmosphere exploration that would ultimately express themselves after a chance re-discovery of the work of Californian composer Terry Riley and an embrace of a lifelong influence of the classical canon form & video game music.

Now making his home amongst analog synths in a valley of silicon, with Loose Canons 2.0 now transmitting and primed for placement, Giacomelli continues to work on his next opus.

Composed, performed, recorded, & mixed by Giacomelli at West Coast Hohm Studios Sound Lab in Silicon Valley, April 2016.
