Big Experiment on CD

Our names are Steven and Enrique. We are the artists that make up the band, 'Across the Room'. We have written and recorded a new CD entitled 'The Big Experiment'. These songs will take you places you've never visited, introduce you to people you've never met, and put you in touch with the feelings you thought you lost. The CD was a 'big experiment' for us. We ventured out of the Rock & Roll status quo and worked with new sounds and new instruments like string quartets, reverse guitars, and accordions. Instead of writing just about love, the songs are about topics like drug abuse (Las Vegas), war (Glass Eye), and the omnipotence of change (What Was is not What Is). The result is an album filled with raw truth, coupled with exploration of sound textures, classic rock roots, Latin progressions, and drizzled with modern lounge electronica. We call it 'Lounge Rock' - purposeful, edgy, and independent. It's music that let's you escape into the depths of your mind and leave behind whatever is bothering you. 'The Big Experiment' was recorded entirely by us. Instead of having a big-named producer get involved with the CD (like most CD's), we did the exact opposite. We played all the instruments and did the entire recording in Steven's spare bedroom with no studio time, no record executive, and a $300.00 budget. While most CD's cost anywhere from ten thousand dollars to hundreds of thousands of dollars, we think you'll be pleasantly surprised at how good three hundred dollars can sound. If you get a chance to see us perform live, please do. We share all the normal jobs of a full band instead of being locked into individual instruments. On any given song, you might see both of us bouncing back between percussion, bass, guitars, keyboards, samplers, and vocals - all depending on the mood and message of the song. It's difficult, sometimes, to expose ourselves, but we play our music because we really don't have another choice. It is our truth and our foundation to the spirit. We are doing what we do out of an intense desire to make an impact in our communities and with those around us. We do this by making better the lives of those we come in contact with - one person at a time. So come 'experiment' with us and live the story through the CD. Our music is sincere and charismatic. Listen to the CD and let your mind go. We hope you enjoy the ride.
